Magical Alaska Winter Tour

Journey to the Northern Lights

This trip offers you an unforgettable winter adventure full of contrasts. Visit the bustling city Seattle and discover the secrets of Anchorage . Navigate snowy winter roads through unspoilt countryside, take a unique snowshoe hike, relax in the sauna and end your day by a crackling campfire. See the sky lit up by the dancing colors of the overwhelming Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights. An absolute highlight of an already memorable trip. Where the world can't find you…
