Fodor's Expert Review Aurora Borealis Lodge
This lodge on Cleary Summit that has big picture windows conducts late-night viewing tours from late August to April to see the northern lights sky. The tour fee—from $75 to $85, depending on your Fairbanks pickup point—includes hot drinks and transportation. Visitors driving themselves pay $25. You can extend your northern lights viewing pleasure by spending the night. Each of the four spacious rooms (starting at $209 for two people) in the two-story lodge building has large, north-facing windows, a private bath, and a kitchen. The standalone Logan Chalet ($350 rate for one to four people, three-night minimum) holds up to six people. Both accommodations have free Wi-Fi and offer discounts for multinight stays.
