The aurora borealis occurs when highly charged electrons from solar winds interact with elements in the earth's atmosphere, and on this Alaskan adventure you’ll be heading out in the middle of the night to find this natural phenomenon. Enjoy the natural wilderness and rugged terrain of Talkeetna and Denali National Park as you fill your days spotting moose, wolves, bears and caribou. When it all gets too much, take a dip in the calming, soothing waters of the Chena Hot Springs. Haven’t had enough wildlife? Stroll with some reindeer in Fairbanks.
