Aurora Borealis Alaska

Q: When is the best time to see the aurora borealis?

A: The best time to view the aurora borealis (also known as the northern lights) is during the winter months in Fairbanks, Alaska. However, if you want to see the wildlife in Denali National Park and the glaciers of Kenai Fjords National Park in addition to the aurora borealis then I would recommend visiting Alaska in early to mid-September. We offer a tour to the Arctic Circle from Fairbanks that would offer you the best opportunity to see the northern lights.

    The above response says the best time to see Denali wildlife and the northern lights is mid-late September and that you offer an Arctic Circle tour there, but when I try to book it says the tour ends in August.
