We got lucky

The Northern light aren't always a sure thing, but we got lucky on October 9. Our guide, Ricky, was informative, on time and friendly. We saw a good, but not fantastic display there and even more lively lights on the way back down. It's what we came to Fairbanks for, and we were not disappointed.

They cancelled this trip so we did the Viewing Lodge tour instead for an extra $30 per person. The yurt was very nice, warm and host was welcoming. The odd thing for me on both tours with this tour company is that they were not very informative. I learned more about Alaska and Fairbanks from a cab driver on a 15 minute ride. The guides were personable and took us where we were going but it is a long night with a guide that is more of a driver than a guide who gives information about the area.
