Overview
Travelers have many options for northern lights tours, but few tours have professional grade cameras and equipment available, and a photographer-guide who helps you capture the lights phenomenon. With this tour, you’ll have the right equipment and travel with an expert photographer to a carefully selected location outside of Fairbanks. Have about three hours to take photos, with hot beverages provided.
