Northern Lights viewing above tree line

Murphy Dome is 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.
- Viewing the Aurora Borealis above tree line presents you with a wide horizon and an incredible view of the Alaska night sky.

Attention: Our preferred viewing area is right on top of Murphy Dome and does not have restroom facility.

We stay warm in our 12-15 passenger van while waiting for the dancing Northern Lights.

A minimum of two people is required on this tour.
