The near full moon acted like a big light box, illuminating the winter landscape and making short exposures of  the northern lights possible.

“I had the time of my life on the Northern lights tour! Laurent is a mindful, seasoned guide who is very popular and well liked by the locals- ALL OVER Alaska. He is a wealth of information and so generous! I’d book with him again without hesitation; the aurora, an authentic wild Alaska experience, and Laurent’s good cooking make his tours unforgettable. Highly recommend it!!” – Belinda K. Lashae, North Carolina –

We stayed in some of the best northern lights viewing places in Alaska (and in North America) where we could see the best and most intense aurora displays.

 “I had wanted to see and photograph Aurora for last many years. After doing extensive research about best times and best location for many weeks, I signed up with Laurent Dick of Wild Alaska Travel for his March 2015 trip. To say that this was one of my best trip ever is an understatement. Laurent is such a great guide! His attention to details about each tour member, their skills with camera, their interests and their physical capabilities was impeccable. He was an amazing resource for everything about Alaska, its geography, history, local people and culture.  To top it up- he has great sense of humor!! I will never forget the perfect 7 days we had,
