I cannot say enough about the Aurora Borealis Lodge. We had booked an excursion with another company a couple of nights prior, and the difference was day and night. We booked an excursion to see the Northern Lights and Mok went out of his way to make this experience phenomenal. He was so polite and the communication was great. We...

My wife has had the aurora on her bucket list since we got married, and the Aurora Borealis Lodge did not disappoint. We did the self-drive tour. We left Fairbanks at 10:00 p.m. and arrived at the lodge around 10:30. Mok was there to greet us. He was the perfect host. He had hot drinks and cookies ready for us....

We spent a few days in December at Aurora Borealis Lodge for our honeymoon a couple of years ago. To this day it still stands out as one of the highlights of our life!! Mok and his family were so warm and welcoming. We never missed a light show thanks to Mok's walkie talkie alerts throughout the night. We watched...

A great place to go! Mok and his team are really nice and friendly. On time pick up from Fairbanks and a very nice lodge: amazing views, comfy sofas, hot drinks. The windows face north and as there is not lots of light in the lodge you can easily see outside. When the lights begin to dance, you can either...

I just came back from a trip to Alaska and my experience at Aurora Borealis Lodge made my trip! Mok and crew truly are a delight and do everything possible to make sure you are comfortable! I love that the lodge is kept dark so whether inside or outside you can see the lights or admire the stars, while you...

There are only 4 rooms in the lodge. Each of them have big windows facing north with a big comfy couch in front, so you can enjoy the light show in your panama sipping tea! The owner takes care of every detail of your need during your stay, the room was nice and clean, beds were comfy, kitchenette well stocked......

I visited the Aurora Borealis Lodge during the night to see the Northern Lights. From the beginning, Mok was great. Always responsive to emails and providing good guidance. As I was not staying at the Lodge, Mok arranged for van pickup from my hotel and transport to the Lodge. The driver was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. The Lodge itself is...

This was easily one of the most fun experiences my wife and I have ever had. We stayed January 13-16, and would have stayed longer if we could have. First, the lodge is as wonderful as the other reviews all say. The room was fantastic (we had room 2 on the 2nd floor), spacious, and very comfortable. The best part...

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights over Christmas and it was simply brilliant from start to finish. Mok welcomed us from the moment we arrived and explained all aspects perfectly to us. The room was impeccably clean and provided great viewing of the Northern Lights. As guests, we can also join in each night with the tour...

I planned our Thanksgiving trip in the beginning of the year in hopes to give thanks under God's amazing light show. I found the Aurora Borealis Lodge by googling and thru the Alaska travel sites but what helped me make my decision to stay here instead of anywhere else was reading all the great reviews from all the other guests....
