Q: We are coming to Alaska in June, where can we see the northern lights?
A: You cannot see the Northern Lights in June because there is too much daylight. In June we average about 18-19 hours of daylight. Occassionally you can view the Northern Lights if you visit Alaska in late August or September. The Arctic Circle Fly/Drive tour departing from Fairbanks at 1pm stops for Aurora viewing from August 22 to September 18th. Read our blog on the Aurora Borealis for additional information.
