Uniquely Alaskan

Borealis Basecamp guests stay in exclusive fiberglass domes similar to those utilized by polar expeditions and research stations. Crafted exclusively to maximize aurora viewing and guest comfort, these domes 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 dome 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 domes 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.


Enjoy hot coffee, cocoa or tea in the dome kitchenette. Complete with sink, refrigerator, and hot water pot, each kitchenette is designed to maximize space without feeling confining. Don’t forget to savor the views from the beautiful breakfast bar. Important note for guests: With a commitment to reducing electricity usage, domes are not equipped with cooking facilities. Guests are highly encouraged to utilize the Borealis Basecamp meal program


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