This tour only runs in the winter months from Sept 1st through April 15th. This trip will be focused on the Aurora Borealis aka Northern Lights. It offers some of the most amazing views that Mother Nature offers. There is no disappointments on this trip as you will return home with those ultimate memories and photographs of a lifetime! Our trips are not fast and quick as we love watching the lights too! Expect hours of fun, great conversation and learning how to photography the lights.

For photographing the Northern Lights we highly suggest a DSLR camera with a lens that is capable of at least a f/2.8 18-35mm and a decent tripod for best pictures. The Northern Lights can be photographed with smartphones as well. But know that due to taking a time exposure, your best results will be with a DSLR camera. It can be cold (below zero), so be sure to dress appropriately for the weather conditions and have an extra camera battery. The cold temperatures can drain a battery quickly.

To be honest the northern lights showed up only for a brief moment and they were not that green but the experience of sitting the whole night in the middle of complet wilderness and looking on the sky its something else, beautiful. It was very cold outside but Scott was keeping us warm in his car the whole time.
Excellent Views with an Honest & Professional Guide

Scott has excellent communication with you on what the conditions and expectations are looking like the night you go out. Even with perfect conditions, the lights were elusive for us but everything was set and prepared for when they appeared. Then the magic happened and we were totally prepared to capture all the night sky had to offer. I would highly recommend this tour and Scott is a very knowledgeable guide to the area and the Northern Lights. He’ll also tell you if he doesn’t think conditions are right and it could take all night so be patient. Also, Scott’s high res prints from our night are postcard quality.
Amazing Northern Lights tour!

Took a Spontaneous trip to Alaska in hopes to see the Northern Lights and check it off my bucket list. And Scott helped me accomplish that goal! Scott was very knowledgeable about Alaska, photography and where the best place to see the lights! He goes over and beyond for his guests. Provided snacks, drinks, blankets, chairs, hand warmers and always leaves the car running so you can warm up :). Even though weather wasn’t cooperating, finally got to see the Lights. I HIGHLY recommend booking through Scott. You won’t be disappointed!
Awesome views

Scott was awesome, he called me about four hours before we where suppose to go out. He told me the cloud coverage would make it almost hard to see the Aurora's so we rescheduled for the next night. So he picks me up at 7:30, and then the rest of the tour (2 more guys) as planned. We drive to five different spot, due to snow and clouds. Yet...the whole time, the entire group is talking about this and that... I was a fun group of people.
The trip was great but...

The trip was great but unfortunately the clouds were very visible and we did not get to see much of the northern lights but the driver Scott was great.
