Something on many people’s bucket list is seeing the Northern Lights. Lucky for you, Alaska and the aurora borealis go together like a motorcyclist and the open road, prompting us to create the Alaska Northern Lights adventure. We schedule this tour late in the riding season so participants have the highest possibility of seeing the aurora borealis while on a two wheeled adventure. This itinerary includes some of the best riding in south-central Alaska. Most of the trip is spent on paved roads, but there is also some non-paved surfaces as well, among them the world-class dirt-surfaced Denali Highway. This itinerary is packed with amazing stops and of course the coup d’etat, Mother Nature’s most mysterious atmospheric phenomenon!
