We went on this trip on October2 and it was mostly a great trip we stopped at the pipeline and the Yukon river and a few other rest stops before getting to the Artic Circle. The driver Bob was an extremely excellent driver/host. He is friendly and easy going. We reached the

You are correct, we don't want to short-change anyone on the duration of the tour or the number of opportunities to "catch the Lights". That said, we do make it plain on the website that this is a van tour, not a lodge tour, understanding that some like the freedom and vastness of the Alaska tundra while others prefer creature comforts and a fixed location -- which is why we offer lots of choices in our tours. Finally, although fewer people smoke nowadays, we've always had a "no smoking" policy inside the van. However, it is impossible to restrict everyone while outside. Hope you're luckier next time in seeing the Aurora.

Great tour! Unfortunately our weather did not cooperate but we still had a great time. Our guide Lindley was great! Very informative and easygoing. She knew everything about everything. We hit a snowstorm with slick spots but she knew exactly how to handle the van and got us

Our tour guide was nice and we did see some faint lights, but I'm honestly not sure what the added value of this tour is? You could simply drive up to the Arctic Circle with your own car. This company charges $250 per person, while renting an SUV would cost $60 total and would

Sorry about your experience, but this was not with our tour company. See communication with TripAdvisor. One more point, we take maximum precautions regarding the health and safety of our guides and customers. From the sanitizing of the vans and equipment, to the provision of extra hand sanitizer and facemasks, to prescreening of all passengers, to the reduction of allowable capacity, we believe we have covered the bases as much as possible.
