Just 25 miles from the city of Fairbanks, Borealis Basecamp is not a destination, it is an experience. Here on 100 acres of pristine boreal forest, outside and inside blend together in transparent swirls of light and dark within the Alaska wilderness. View the aurora borealis from a modern geodesic igloo, explore the rugged landscape, and understand the allure of the far north.

Spend the night in a Borealis Basecamp igloo and feel the magic. Spacious interiors provide plenty of room for aurora-viewing and relaxing. With comfortable beds and luxurious linens, guests snuggle in for a night of gazing upon the starry Arctic sky through an expansive, clear ceiling.


Less than an hour from Fairbanks along the Elliott Highway, Borealis Basecamp is remote yet accessible, set on nearly 100 acres of private land three miles from the main road. This far north, it’s easy to view the famous aurora borealis, with around 250 nights of swirling green, red, and purple lights each year. No light pollution, few people, only nature at its finest.


Alaska is famous for warm hospitality and good food. At Borealis Basecamp, guests are treated to fresh, local flavors in the comfortable dining yurt. Massive windows provide views of far-off ridges, and casual European styling sets a stage for the perfect far north atmosphere.


Borealis Basecamp guests often wish to commemorate a special occasion during their visit. Let the professional staff create an unforgettable experience with personalized touches that reflect Alaskan hospitality, just ask at the time of booking.
