Why take this tour?

Leave your Healy area accommodations via a climate-controlled van, and journey away from the lights of town to search for the Northern Lights. The area around Denali makes an ideal spot for stargazing and catching the sometimes elusive Aurora Borealis. Your Alaskan guide will provide commentary and conversation on the area’s unique history, formidable climate, dynamic geography, and separate scientific facts from fictional myths. Learn all about Mother Nature’s fireworks display from a local guide, sip a warm drink, and learn how the Lights are the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere. This bucket list experience lets you hop out at select locations with your camera in hand with pointers from your guide. The Northern Lights are visible only during the winter months (August to April) and sightings are not guaranteed.

Frequently asked questions

The tour is designed to be mobile and flexible to adapt to change to the ever-changing conditions of Alaska. We fully evaluate conditions 1 hour prior to the tour departure time. Even when raining or cloudy in some areas, our team evaluates various routes to give the best opportunities to get views. If we have complete and total unfavorable conditions, we will reach out to you on a case-by-case basis.
The Aurora Borealis is a natural phenomenon and sightings can not be guaranteed. Many factors may prevent viewing including other weather conditions. We do our best to identify the best routes with the highest chances and are successful often, but at times, we strike out. Sightings are never guaranteed and if Northern Lights do not appear, no refunds will be issued. However, Stampede Excursions will allow guests that are on an unsuccessful tour to be placed on a standby list for the next offered tour at no additional charge. Guests on the standby list will be confirmed, in an order determined by Stampede Excursions, 30 minutes prior to the tour departure time.
