One of the best places to see the Northern Lights is in Fairbanks, Alaska in the months of February + March.  Within Fairbanks, the best places to see the lights are by bodies of water. We will be staying on a lake front property . We will also be visiting a natural hot spring. Although nothing in life is guaranteed, we will be at the right place at the right time. 

In 2022, Shawna + John went to Fairbanks Alaska in March in search of the aurora. Of the five nights they were there we saw them twice. The lights were spectacular. The pictures on this website are taken from Shawna's iPhone! In getting to speak to the locals about this, they said they happen regularly during this season. When Shawna came back, there were Northern Light sightings in Washington + Phoenix. Something that never happens. We joked we brought them home with us beause John is from Phoenix.  The magic is real!

We can't promise anything but we have calculated the perfect time + location with the odds in our favor. And of course, we have a good feeling about the magic and know even if we don't see them, we are planning out plenty of opportunities to see them and enjoy the stars and the wildneress that is the last frontier. 

This retreat provides the perfect balance of wellness, sense of adventure, exploration of nature in once-in-a-life-time-way, relaxation, inspiration, health + fun.
