While Fairbanks, Alaska, is home to plenty of outdoor activities and amazing restaurants, it's worth traveling outside the city to experience the natural beauty of the northern lights during your Alaska vacation. One of the best ways to view them is at Borealis Basecamp in Chatanika. Guests can enjoy access to adventures like dogsledding and eat local cuisine in the camp's dining yurt before getting cozy in a modern heated geodesic dome with clear ceilings to take in the night sky.
