Fabulous indeed, we were taken to a wonderful place away from the city lights and set up in a real mushers cabin to get the best camera lesson ever! Then we went out to fund the lights and test our new found knowledge. Great night. Highly recommended!

We had a fun time up at the cabin trying to capture the lights. When you get there you can warm up with some hot chocolate or tea in a nice souvenir cup they give you, and enjoy delicious brownies. The dogs will come on out and get some petting from you. A total novice w photography so we rented... More

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary by checking off one of our bucket list items... to see the Northern Lights. Our first night we went on another tour. A bunch of college age kids that said they didn't know when or if the lights would come out. One lady had used part of her retirement for her... More

My husband is the photographer, so this tour was great for him. They have a short class on camera settings to get the best pictures of the Auroras. For me I was able to rent a camera setup and I only needed to push a button and my shots of the Auroras came out great just like my husbands. Ron... More

My wife and I were worried the evening of 15 February when the weather in Fairbanks was snowy and overcast - would we have any chance to view an active Aurora? Ron and Marketta ended up driving our group of 8 Aurora chasers 2+ hrs south. During the drive they showed some e-slides about the physics of the Aurora followed... More

My wife and I planned our honeymoon to see the Northern lights in Alaska. Although we had booked our stay in Anchorage, we made a last minute trip to Fairbanks after reading about the Aurora Chasers' tour. Even though we were only able to see faint Aurora activity, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. Ronn and Marketa treated us like family,... More

New nothing about my camera and the helped me get it set up to shoot photos of the aurora. They clearly love what they do and enjoy being helpful and sharing the outdoor experience with you. Even had special tips for the expert photographers. A great deal. Nice van/bus.

From start to finish Ron and Marketa were great communicators and full of wisdom regarding finding and capturing the beautiful and magical auroras. They taught us everything we needed to know and were really there for everyone to make our outing a successful journey. We brought a camera (Nikon) and rented Ronn's full Sony kit. That made for great pictures... More
