ABL provides an affordable, comfortable place to view the lights. For as little as $25 per person, Mok provides a warm place to wait, light refreshments and bathroom facilities. This was probably the best value of anything I did on my entire trip. Mok is also a great host.

Imagine being able to enjoy the Northern Lights show from the comfort of a cushy couch inside a warm, cozy room. Or laying in bed, seeing the lights dance right outside the window. And, better yet, imagine being able to go to bed at your normal time, knowing someone ELSE was going to stand out in the cold and let...

Mok is a honest and honorable businessman you can trust. He didn't charge us in advance. He told us it's going to rain that night and the possibility of seeing northern lights was very low. We trusted his judgement and didn't go for viewing. It turned out there's no northern lights that night. It saves us money and energy. (He...

This place is outstanding. About 20 minutes north of Fairbanks, you are far enough away from the city lights for great views of the northern ones, yet close enough to drop into town when you want to. Mok is extremely friendly and willing to answer any questions you may have. As for the "Could be better" review below, if Mok...

Mok is a fabulous host and the unit was clean and well equipped. He was super helpful with daytime activity (hiking) advice and great letting us know about Aurora activity. I would highly recommend staying here.

Good location only for Aurora viewing but really nothing around and no staffs at the lodge if you need them, They only there for a short time. We stayed for 3 nights and another 3 nights we moved to Alaska Heritage House (we liked it here better). The thing that disappointed us was we went back the night after check...

We booked this well in advance and a lot really depended on the weather for a great view. Fortunately as we depart Alaska we were blessed with 3 nights of spectacular views of the northern lights. Mok made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, greeting us as we drove in, and farewelling us as we departed this morning....

I was skeptical to book this early into the season... So glad I booked this tour. This was probably my favorite one! We were able to see the northern lights dancing across the sky. So beautiful! Cassie, our tour guide was very informative and made sure we were all having a good time! Highly recommend this tour!!

We (4 adults) booked 4 days in November 2015 to see the Aurora Borealis in person. Sadly, the day we arrived, so did the overcast, and we never did see northern lights. We stayed in Logan's Chalet, which was wonderful!!! We had privacy and quiet, but were just a hundred yards from the lodge and hot chocolate. Mok was the...
