Murphy Dome Northern Lights

Day Tour from/to Fairbanks

One of the best northern lights viewing areas near Fairbanks and a favorite spot for many aurora photographers. With 2,890 feet altitude, Murphy Dome is one of the highest peaks in the Fairbanks area. This 360 degree horizon sets the stage for a phenomenal Northern Lights show.

Your night begins between 9.45 and 10.15PM right at your Fairbanks accommodation, so you don’t need to plan how to get to your bus and you will save additional taxi costs. From there you will drive to the Murphy Dome area, where you will stay warm in a 12-15 passenger van while waiting for the dancing Northern Lights. Hot beverages are complimentary. The preferred viewing area is right on top of Murphy Dome and does not have restroom facility. Viewing the Aurora Borealis above tree line presents you with a wide horizon and an incredible view of the Alaska night sky. You will return to Fairbanks at approximately 3AM.
