Winter is a spectacular time at A Taste of Alaska Lodge. A sparkling winter wonderland awaits visitors with plenty of cold weather adventure at this Fairbanks Aurora viewing lodge.


A Taste of Alaska Lodge is far enough from Fairbanks’ city lights that the Aurora Borealis, or northern lights, can be seen on clear winter nights. Many people dream of experiencing the Aurora, a phenomenon that seems almost magical, as colors move and dance across the sky. There is an Aurora viewing cabin for visitors to go in and warm up during viewing sessions on cold, winter nights.


A favorite winter activity at A Taste of Alaska Lodge is dog sled rides. Guests enjoy short rides and one-hour mushing tours right on our property through Paws for Adventure. An experienced musher will guide and drive the dog team on snowy trails through the forest. Paws for Adventure also offer mushing schools and overnight adventures for guests who want to learn how to drive their own dog team.


A fun way to explore the forest while there is snow on the ground is snowshoeing. There is nothing like the peaceful quiet of trekking through the woods after a fresh snowfall. There are snowshoes available to guests who would like to venture out into the winter wonderland on foot.


There are many other local activities in the Fairbanks area that are an easy driving distance from A Taste of Alaska Lodge. Owner Kory is happy to assist you with planning your day and booking activities of interest.
