Anchorage's charming, garden-fronted Copper Whale Inn, ideally situated within walking distance of most of downtown's top establishments (and just a stone's throw from the city's stunning 11-mile Tony Knowles Coastal Trail), is offering Fodorites an exclusive 20-percent off deal.

We've rounded up four unique opportunities to combine northern lights viewing with an extra boost of only-in-Alaska adventure.
