Aurora Tour from Anchorage
To witness auroras rippling across the northern night sky over moonlit, snowy peaks shining across the dark water is an experience to be remembered. Alaska Photo Treks offers an aurora tour departing from the Anchorage area and traveling within a 60-mile radius to breathtaking dark-sky locations. Of course, auroras are fickle and unpredictable, dependent on both earth and space weather. For this reason, Anchorage Aurora Quest only runs [and takes guest payment] when conditions are optimal for success. We were delighted when a special guest, a travel writer columnist for the New Zealand Herald, was able to join us on an Aurora Quest last March. It was enchanting to wintess her joy in seeing the lights. Later, she wrote a moving review of the experience: Alaska | Northern Lights a Visual Symphony.
Alaska Photo Treks operates a variety of photo-centric tours, workshops and classes, including Sunset Photo Safari and its winter counterpart, Twilight Photo Tour. Each are 4-hour excursions designed to make the most of the best light of the day. Also, Anchorage Aurora Quest; providing opportunity to see and photograph northern lights in Southcentral Alaska, from September through March.
