Uniquely Alaskan

Borealis Basecamp guests stay in exclusive fiberglass igloos similar to those utilized by polar expeditions and research stations. Crafted exclusively to maximize aurora viewing and guest comfort, these igloos are intimate retreats in the midst of an Alaska winter. The unique location of camp also provides a truly immersive experience into rural Alaska life, different from other destinations around the world. Alaskans refer to this style of living as “off the grid” and often includes water tanks, generators or batteries to provide power, and a sense of independence from city connections. Guests are invited to embrace this experience, in harmony with their own sense of belonging within the Alaska wilderness.

The View

Clear, curved windows stretch 16 feet across each igloo roof, allowing guests to lie in bed and view the dancing northern lights and scenery outdoors without leaving their cozy nest.

Living Space

Warm and spacious, Borealis Basecamp igloos feature simple, yet elegant European-style interiors with 12-foot ceilings that embrace Alaska’s natural light. Comfortable beds make up sleeping areas, and elegant furnishings allow for daytime relaxation with friends or family.

Breakfast Bar

Enjoy hot coffee, cocoa or tea in the igloo on the live edge breakfast bar.  Don’t forget to savor the views as you enjoy your morning cup of coffee. Important note for guests: With a commitment to reducing electricity usage, domes are not equipped with cooking facilities. Guests are highly encouraged to utilize Latitude 65, our onsite restaurant.


Life off the grid doesn’t mean primitive. Borealis Basecamp igloo baths offer shower, toilet, and vanity sink with all the comforts travelers expect. All domes are thoughtfully provided with soap, conditioner, and shampoo.
