Denali Aurora Quest

Alaska is one of the best places in the world for Aurora viewing!

Join this small group 3-hour guided tour to search the skies for the Aurora Borealis, also known as Northern Lights. One of the world's most spectacular natural phenomenons are visible in Denali, Alaska and we'll try our best to help you experience them.

Begin the tour from your Healy/Denali area accommodations via a climate-controlled van, and journey away from the lights of town to search for the Northern Lights. The Denali area is an ideal spot for stargazing and catching elusive Aurora Borealis. Your local Alaskan guide will share the area's unique history, dynamic geography, formidable climate and separate scientific facts from fictional myth.

Throughout the entire journey, be sure to keep your eyes to the skies for Mother Nature's fireworks display, sip a warm drink, and learn how the Lights are the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere.

This bucket list experience lets you get off at select locations for photo taking. A comfortable ride will take you back to your hotel after the Aurora viewing.

Please note: The Northern Lights are visible only during the winter months (late August to April) and sightings are not guaranteed.
