2015 Alaska Northern Lights Tour, April 2 – April 9
Below is a selection of images from the 2015 Alaska Northern Lights Tour in early April. My guests were excited to watch the northern lights almost every night, sometimes all the way until dawn!

“I had the time of my life on the Northern lights tour! Laurent is a mindful, seasoned guide who is very popular and well liked by the locals- ALL OVER Alaska. He is a wealth of information and so generous! I’d book with him again without hesitation; the aurora, an authentic wild Alaska experience, and Laurent’s good cooking make his tours unforgettable. Highly recommend it!!” – Belinda K. Lashae, North Carolina –
“I recently got back from a northern lights tour with Laurent and the entire experience was incredible. His knowledge of Alaska and the northern lights was so helpful in having a successful time viewing that colourful light dance in the sky. He also taught me how to set the camera up to take pictures of it. The places he set us up to stay were also very nice, clean and quaint. He’s a pretty good cook too. I would definitely recommend his tours to anyone interested and I am hoping to get the opportunity to go on another one sometime soon. Thanks so much!” –

Our Alaska Northern Lights tours are not just about watching the northern lights, but also about exploring and enjoying the wild beauty of Alaska.
The colors most often associated with the aurora borealis are pink, green, yellow, blue, violet, and occasionally orange and white. Typically, when the particles collide with oxygen, yellow and green are produced. Interactions with nitrogen produce red, violet, and occasionally blue colors
