A cool vacation experience awaits at Borealis Basecamp—literally! Found within a hundred acres of boreal forest in Fairbanks, Alaska, glampers can witness the majestic aurora borealis from a modern geodesic igloo.
A place to dream while awake, the accommodations at the property offer a modern respite while still being tucked away in the Alaskan wilderness.
Take, for example, the fiberglass igloos at Borealis Basecamp. Each dome structure features a transparent concave roof, expansive enough to illuminate the interior with the beautiful northern lights. Getting cozy in bed has never been better in the company of nature, and the comfortable mattresses and luxurious linens in each igloo make snuggling a treat.
Despite being off-grid, Borealis Basecamp’s igloos are far from being primitive, with full baths featuring a shower, vanity sink, and more modern comforts.
Meanwhile, an accommodation for the family to share, the Cubes at the property each come appointed with a king-sized bed, kitchenette, and en suite bath with a heated towel rack, a rainfall shower, flushing toilet, and vanity sink.
Floor-to-ceiling windows highlight breathtaking views of both the trees and the stunning night sky. A heated deck is perfect for early morning coffee moments in the presence of the great Alaskan naturescape.
Even the kids get a little slice of nature with a “treehouse” bed. Each Cube unit with this space has a secure window, so kids can enjoy the view while playing or sleeping.
According to its website, the Cubes can be found in the East Village of Borealis Basecamp and lets guests immerse themselves in the serene forest surrounding the property.
Not only can glampers enjoy staying at Borealis, but even adventurers will also find something to do. The property offers exclusive packages for the summer, winter, and fall. Experiences include touring around the White Mountains with a UTV, an Arctic Circle tour where participants can earn an Arctic Circle Traveler Certificate, and a reindeer walking experience. During the winter, mushing and snowmobiling always provide the thrills to the chills.
After a day of adventure, visitors can chomp down on Alaskan seafood, meticulously prepared by a chef. Each heartwarming meal feeds the stomach before the Aurora Borealis viewing feeds the soul.
When unwinding, glampers may find the sauna a perfect way to cap the day off, but ultimately, nothing beats witnessing the northern lights in motion in the comfort of an igloo.
