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,

Alaska Northern Lights Tours

The Northern Lights are one of nature’s great displays: a mysterious, multicolored show in which the night sky is suddenly lit up with a wondrous glow that twists and swirls like a heavenly lava lamp. The strength of auroral activity runs in 11-year cycles; 2012/13 just happens to be a peak moment known as “Solar Maximum”, with experts predicting plentiful and spectacular displays. If you have always wanted to see the Northern Lights, this is undoubtedly the time, and I encourage you to check out my 2013 Wild Alaska Travel Northern Lights Tours.

Colorful Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) Over Interior Alaska

What causes the the various colors in the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)? The Northern Lights are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere. Variations in color are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. The most common auroral color, a pale yellowish-green, is produced by oxygen molecules located about 60 miles above the earth. Rare, all-red auroras are produced by high-altitude oxygen, at heights of up to 200 miles. Nitrogen produces blue or purplish-red aurora.

Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) Over Fairbanks, Alaska

Vibrant Northern Lights displays illuminate the sky above the city of Fairbanks in Interior Alaska. As we are approaching the solar maximum, we should be able to see more Northern Lights with equal intensity. The solar cycle takes an average of around 11 years to go from one solar maximum to the next – varying between 9 to 14 years for any given solar cycle. The last Solar Maximum was in 2000. The next peak will occur in 2011 and 2012, so opportunities to see auroras outside their normal range should be excellent.
