Discover the jaw-dropping beauty of the aurora in Alaska for yourself!

Aurora in Alaska

The Northern Lights are one of the most dazzling sights a person can witness, but if you aren’t lucky enough to live in a spot that is sufficiently north or sufficiently dark, they may remain a spectacle you only see in pictures.

This year, instead of seeing other people’s pictures of the aurora borealis, why not take the pictures? The area around Anchorage, Alaska is prime aurora viewing territory and there are several ways you can take advantage of it!

From the “Aurora Wake Up Calls” notifying you of a great lights display at the The Hotel Alyeska, to guided  photo safaris from Alaska Photo Treks or Arctic Light,  Anchorage is a great place to explore the aurora borealis and capture a bit of the light for yourself.
