Northern Lights Adventure to Alaska - The Old Farmer's Almanac

Many people never get the chance to see the spectacle that is the Aurora Borealis. Perhaps they have no time, are not sure where to go, or find it too difficult to plan every little detail. Leave your worries behind and come with us! For five nights and six days, join the The Old Farmer’s Almanac and renowned astronomer, Bob Berman, on an amazing Alaskan adventure.

Imagine this: It’s pitch black. The snow crunches beneath your boots as you trudge through the dark. Your breath hangs in the freezing air as you look up at the starry night sky. Suddenly, that magical moment takes place when an enchanting flash of color blankets the stars. The green streak of brilliance morphs into pale yellows and whites, as if dancing in the wind. The bright brush of light, alive and mystical for a moment, disappears just as mysteriously as it appeared.

In its third year, the tour will guide you towards prime northern lights viewing locations just outside of Fairbanks, on secret, remote mountaintops, nestled between tall evergreens. With special lectures from Bob Berman and Dr. Neal Brown from the University of Fairbanks, you’ll also learn the science, history, and folklore behind this spectacular phenomenon.

On the tour you’ll also experience more of what Alaska has to offer. Take an exhilarating dogsled trek through the woods, or take a relaxing dip in the Chena Hot Springs, located in one of the world’s “greenest” cities. Chena is famed for its dedication to sustainability – from its intensive recycling system to its surprisingly ultra-local food scene powered by geothermal energy!

While up north, take the chance to explore cultural heritage museums, castles made of ice, and attend the World Ice Championships, a truly spectacular display of talent and creativity carved right into giant ice blocks! Want more? Sign up for the trip extension which takes you on a train ride through the rugged mountains of Denali National Park, on our way to discover the many treasures awaiting us in Anchorage.

The adventure begins on March 8th, 2016. Don’t miss out and be sure to book your reservation now! For more information about the tour, including registration and pricing details, please visit:
