Ultimate Northern Lights. Arctic Man Festival
Don’t miss this unique 9 day, one of a kind northern lights adventure guided by professional photographer and expedition guide Brian Montalbo. Brian is a passionate aurora chaser and will not only guide you to the best places to capture the auroras, he will make it fun and exciting. This is truly a unique aurora tour like no other.
Arrive in Anchorage and experience the largest city in Alaska, then say goodbye to civilization, as you enjoy the scenic drive into interior Alaska and home to world famous Arctic Man, to witness how Alaskans celebrate the end of winter. Spend four nights sleeping in motorhomes, surrounded by glaciers and towering peaks, gazing up at the best light show on the planet, from the base of the Hoodoo mountains. The back drop is truly stunning and worth the trip alone.
Brian is the lead photographer for the Arctic Man race and his camp will be in a perfect location within Arctic Man Camp. He will be able to keep you updated on all the events and activities as well as introduce you to the racers and olympic athletes.
After four nights of wild arctic man madness and aurora chasing, we make our way north of Fairbanks, “aurora capital” of the USA. Three of the next four nights are spent soaking in hot springs. It’s the perfect way to spend your final days and nights after the rowdy time at Arctic Man.
Choose to get dropped off in Fairbanks to fly home or continue on with the group back to Anchorage, where you get a chance at seeing Denali Mountain, 20,320 Ft the tallest in north America.
This is a truly unique northern lights adventure. You will experience a lot of the best places Alaska has to offer.
