We offer nightly Aurora viewing between mid-September and mid-April from 9pm to 3am. From our unique location, at the top of Cleary summit, overlooking Poker Flats, we boast the best view of the dark night sky within a 45 minute drive of Fairbanks. Our northern view, lack of light pollution, and elevation above other hills or trees gives you the best chance to get amazing pictures of the Northern Lights.
Included in the $30/p price is access to our private property, a warm lodge to await the lights in, a souvenir wrist band, unlimited Hot Cocoa, Coffee, and tea. Additional food and drink items are available for purchase.
Groups of 6 or more should make reservations by emailing us at Info@Skiland.org, parties of 5 or less may just show up.
For regular tour operators coming at least 4 times during the season, group rates for parties of 10 or more are available.
*Recommended for ages 10+, no youth discounts available.
*We do not permit alcohol to be brought onto our property.
Remember the 3 things you need to see the Aurora are:
1) A dark sky (so plan your trip between October and April.)
2) A Clear sky (see the latest weather here. )
3) Some solar radiation. (Our two favored forecasts are from UAF and from the Aurora Service.)
