About 40 km ahead of the city of Fairbanks, Borealis Basecamp offers an incredible experience amid the Alaskan wilderness. Fairbanks has been a prime spot to catch Northern Lights, and the property, set on 100 acres of pristine boreal forest, is popular for offering the best views of the colourful night skies from its 20 glass-domed igloos ever since it opened in 2017.

This year, Borealis Basecamp has decided to take it up a notch and introduce five brand new glass cubes for an elevated viewing experience! Be ready to settle in and snuggle up for a night full of natural wonder. Located in the East Village of the property, these cosy Cube hideaways come with large floor-to-ceiling windows, lavish amenities, an attached kitchenette, and ample space to accommodate a group of three to five.

Unwind outside on the heated deck, mozey inside for a refreshing rainfall shower, and curl up in the king-size bed to lay back and take in the view. Each unit is fitted with an additional ‘treehouse’ bed for little ones, and features en suite baths equipped with heated towel racks, vanity sinks, and a range of toiletries.

Watch the luxe interiors and the great outdoors seamlessly blend together in transparent swirls of light and dark, as you understand exactly why the dancing lights of the aurora borealis is the ultimate allure of the far north. Enjoy true taste of Alaskan seafood prepared fresh with local produce at the newly expanded Latitude 65 restaurant.

While you spend your nights gasping at the grand lighting spectacle put against the rugged terrain, reserve your days for some basecamp adventures. From a guided driving tour to the Arctic Circle, UTV ride through White Mountains Recreation Area, to a reindeer walking tour and an Alaska sled dog kennel visit, options are aplenty.

The Cubes offering a new style of aurora viewing will be available for booking for its debut season from November 15, 2022. The winter packages range from two to four nights, starting at $1,043 per person and including accommodation, roundtrip transportation to and from Fairbanks, and a range of experiences.
