Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit Alaska - Borealis Basecamp

Visit Alaska - Borealis Basecamp

Seeing the Aurora Borealis in person has always been on my bucket list so I began researching the best places to see it. Turns out Fairbanks, Alaska is one of the top listed locations and many travelers recommend a stay at Borealis Basecamp. Located just 25 miles north of Fairbanks, Borealis Basecamp offers 28 rooms (cubes and igloos) with prime aurora viewing on 100 acres.

Each room can fit 3 people maximum so my family had to reserve 2 rooms and we chose the 2 night package that included transportation to and from Fairbanks, a one hour dogsledding tour, and a one hour snow machine tour. We added on a 45 minute Reindeer walk and a photography session for the family. Breakfast is included.

Our experience at the Basecamp was amazing and nothing like we have ever experienced. The staff is great and the excursions were excellent. We had so much fun and were so lucky that the aurora came out both nights that we were there. It was magical and I'm very thankful I got to experience it with my family.

Dogsledding. We took turns sitting and standing.

A learning reindeer walk. Absolutely my favorite!

Snowmachine experience was very exciting. Drivers need to be 16.

Snowshoes are available for fun in the snow! 

Right outside my igloo! An amazing experience!
