Spring Northern Lights Package

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook!
  This package provides the best of Alaska's winter activities with the opportunity to view the famed Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).  Many of our guests choose to coordinate their northern lights visit with winter events such as the start of the world famous Iditarod Sled Dog Race.  Our spring package brings together premiere winter events with fantastic daytime activities, superior accommodations and prime opportunities to see the northern lights every night.

The Spring Northern Lights Package is available from November through March.

Day 3: Today you'll take off for a flight to the face of North America's tallest mountain, Mt. McKinley, the crown jewel of Denali National Park.
