A one of a kind lodging experience in Fairbanks, Alaska

Sleep in Igloos under the Aurora Borealis

Borealis Basecamp sits just over 25 miles outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. Perched along the border of civilization and the pristine Alaskan backcountry, experience all that Fairbanks has to offer in one single destination. By day, roar through the backwoods and along the Trans Alaskan Pipeline on snow machines, take a helicopter during sunrise to soak in some spectacular hot springs or get pulled through the trees by a team of Alaskan huskies. By night enjoy the wood-fired sauna before stepping outside to watch the brilliant display of the Aurora Borealis dance above you in the sky. What started as a place for only viewing the Aurora Borealis has turned into a 15 dome glamping retreat. Sleep amidst fiberglass igloos designed with the purpose to provide uninterrupted views of the Aurora Borealis above. The only thing separating you and the northern lights is a thick piece of clear acrylic. With a great variety of activities and packages, Borealis Basecamp has something for everyone.
