EPIC

BASECAMP IS WHERE IT ALL BEGINS.  IT IS YOUR BASE FROM WHICH YOU EXPERIENCE THE LAND AROUND YOU.  OUR ACTIVITIES LAUNCH INTO THE MILES OF TERRAIN SOUNDING OUR LODGE AND RETURN TO THE WARMTH OF YOUR IGLOO Borealis Basecamp

Mushing

Most people know it as “dogsledding” but Alaskans know it as mushing.  Mushing is the melding of your and the dogs life into combined survival in the desolate wilds of interior Alaska.  Enjoy a taste of this through a mushing tour right from your igloo.  Surging off down the trail enjoy the thrill of Alaskan huskies pulling you over the snow.  Stop at an Arctic Oven tent to learn a little bout trail life before returning to your igloo.

Aurora Viewing

Come enjoy an evening of Aurora Viewing and our winter activities.  Inside our warm Alaskan made Yurt we offer cookies, hot drinks, a relaxed and friendly environment.  Stepping outside find a skyline devoid of any light pollution.  A perfect mountain top location for taking in the best aurora viewing in Alaska.
