Sisterhood Under the Stars

Witness the Dance of the Northern Lights:
An Exclusive Alaskan Odyssey for Women

Prepare to embark on an extraordinary journey with Sisterhood Travel’s exclusive women-only tour of Alaska and the breathtaking phenomenon of the Northern Lights. The ethereal dance of the Northern Lights across the starry expanse and Alaska’s winter landscape is an experience beyond compare. As you delve into the wonders of the Last Frontier, be prepared to encounter a wildlife haven where wolves, grizzlies, foxes, and hares roam freely, while majestic eagles grace the skies. The landscape is a testament to Mother Nature’s unparalleled artistry, boasting electric blue glaciers, picturesque fjords, and invigorating hot springs. It’s no wonder this land captured the heart of Santa himself – and will surely capture yours too.

An unparalleled highlight of this journey is the transcendent, once-in-a-lifetime experience of crossing the Arctic Circle, an adventure that defines the spirit of Alaskan exploration. Traverse the skies east of the gates of the Arctic National Park, offering unparalleled views of the rugged Brooks Mountain Range and the expansive tundra below. In the welcoming town of Coldfoot, immerse yourself in the traditions of the resilient people who continue to thrive in the Yukon River Valley. As you triumphantly cross the Arctic Circle, be honored with an official Arctic Circle Adventure Certificate, a testament to your exploration of this awe-inspiring terrain.
