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.

In a word - AWESOME! Chasing the Aurora Borealis with SkyFire in Focus is definitely the way to go. It is hard to describe in words alone the entire adventure, as one just needs to experience it. Whether photographing or simply viewing, SkyFire accommodates all. Mr. Bill is a

I would highly recommend SkyFire In Focus. We had such a great time, and seeing the Aurora Borealis is one of the coolest things I’ve experienced. We didn’t know if the clouds would ruin our chances of seeing the Aurora Borealis, but we are sure glad we took a chance. Bill took

Bill learnt about our days of stay at Alaska. He picked the day that had the highest probability, unlike other tours which take in people irrespective of the Aurora prediction. This guarantees an amazing Aurora experience for every visitor who visits expecting to see them. Aside
