      Northern Lights during Labor Day?

      by CruisingGoddess Online Now Apr 10, 2012 at 6:51 PM

      I am disembarking a cruise in Seward on Aug. 31st and have 3 nights to spend in Alaska before heading home. I was thinking about heading up to Fairbanks for 2 nights over Labor Day weekend to try and catch the Northern Lights. But from what I've read, it sounds like my chances are "slim" of seeing them, right? Fairbanks is quite a trek from Seward so would it make more sense for me to see more of the Kenai Peninsula or go to Denali given the limited time I have?

      Fairbanks sounds like a lovely place but I think I'd be really disappointed if I head up there and didn't see the Northern Lights. Maybe I should come back during the winter to increase my chances? Thoughts? Thanks in advance!

We are focusing on the new moon phase in February or March next year. I have looked at the Bettles Lodge web site and was interested in any comments someone might have about that location, or others, that would give us the best viewing opportunity. We have reviewed the Fairbanks/Alaska brochures, but we would also like your first-hand opinion on events in the Fairbanks area that time of year. Should we try to visit Anchorage, for example? We are thinking about staying for ten days to two weeks.

      Myself and 2 friends are arriving in Fairbanks airport at lunchtime and we are staying in the Tanana Valley, so we wanted to go into town first, wander around, grab some evening dinner etc before heading out to Grandview B&B for the night. Thing is we want to store our luggage somewhere so we don't have to drag it around with us all day - I couldn't find anything at the bus depot and we didn't really want to head back out to the airport. Is there anywhere in town we can store it for about 5-6-7 hours?!?!

      Has anyone got any suggestions? or will it be easier to go from airport to our B&B (they will pick us up from the airport or somewhere in town - we just got to tell them) and then get a taxi into town and back again (which doesn't bother us - just looking for the most effective way of doing this).

      by smiler_girl Online Now Sep 6, 2005 at 12:12 AM


      Myself and 2 friends will be heading to Fairbanks March 2006 to see the Northern Lights. Yes I know it will be very cold, we are prepared for that. Hence the reason we are only staying 3 days in Fairbanks - hopefully we will get at least one nights viewing.

      The question I have is whether we should go and do a night tour to see the lights, or find (from a local) the best location to see them. I am not really sure what is the best option. We wont have a car (we will be flying into Fairbanks) so we need to be able to easily get around (I guess).

      Any assistance or helpful hints anyone can provide would be GREATLY appreciated.

      Also I need to find a good place to stay for the 3 of us. Nice and warm - yet not 5 star hotel prices. I guess cheap as you can get but nice - we will be on a budget which we have to start saving for now.

      Thanks in advance.
