The ceiling wraps around you, outside and inside blend together, enveloped in the beauty of Alaska.  The transparent ceilinged Borealis Basecamp igloos rest on a north facing ridge crest at an altitude of about 1,200 ft beckoning you.  Rugged landscapes, aurora borealis overhead, first class accommodations, personalized and heartfelt Alaskan service.

  • I was moved into tears. It's wonderful to come to Alaska.

Spending the night in Borealis Basecamp igloos is magical. Beyond the spectacular view, the igloos provide a surprisingly spacious interior with high-level amenities. Drift off to sleep in a luxurious warm bed on the north facing arctic slope while admiring the starry arctic sky eagerly anticipating the Aurora Borealis.  With kitchenette, full bath and plenty of warmth, snuggle into your igloo only to emerge at your choosing.


Borealis Basecamp is located within interior Alaska, north of Fairbanks. Here, winter lasts half the year and is one of the best places on earth to see the northern lights with around 250 nights of Aurora every year. It is a short 30 minute drive from Fairbanks to arrive at your arctic getaway.  Surrounded by nature we sit on acres of private property surrounded by miles of public land all without a single light and narry a person.  Your own private park only 25 miles from town.
