After visiting Santa Clause Village in Rovaniemi, Finland the previous Winter break, I was expecting to feel the same excitement and happiness when meeting Santa here in the North Pole, AK. Unfortunately, the Santa I met here did not sound or act like the Santa I was expecting. He seemed more into publicity and was more into talking rather than listening.
Maybe Santa was having a bad day so I forgive him.
Also, there is no Wifi here!!!

Photographer Sean Kurdziolek specializes in Northern Lights photography capturing portraits under the Aurora! This is a rare opportunity to capture something incredibly special and unique. Book a session today and go home with an exquisite memory to hang on your wall. Sean Kurdziolek Photography is a family run business. Sean, Amanda, and their children live in beautiful North Pole, Alaska. They enjoy the winters that Alaska have to offer the most. The snow that falls and glistens in the sunlight, the sunrise and sunset within moments of each other, the people, the cold and all the winter activities that the Last Frontier have to offer. The Aurora Borealis is their favorite of all that this region has to offer. It is never the same Aurora. It is a spectacular phenomenon that brings out the best in people and they are so happy to help others experience this and capture a priceless moment to hang in their home for generations to enjoy.
Sean and Amanda are absolutely incredible! They make the perfect team and make sure your experience is nothing short of unforgettable. We are so grateful of the opportunity to have our Aurora Portraits taken by Sean! I can't wait to hang our amazing wall art...MoreThank you for the kind words Crystal.

A nice place for locals, but unless you are just looking for a good place to have a picnic I would not call this a tourist destination. It is a small man made lake with a playground and canoe rental.

Your 1st stop for visitor information. Enjoy Alaska Native art, music, stories and dance. Free world-class exhibits that tell the story of life in Interior Alaska. Wave to family around the world on our Antler Arch webcam. Free films, WiFi, parking.
What a beautiful cultural and visitor center. We spent a long morning here and enjoyed every minute of it. Often we tire of museum-type environments after just an hour, but this one was very engaging, kept us moving, and offered variety. We came away knowing more and feeling happy about the process of learning.

As the name implies, The Screaming Weasel is definitely unique. After doing a double-take on the highway, my husband and I decided to turn around and check this place out... TSW is filled to the brim with locally made items and the owner is a sweetheart. She made us feel quite welcome and had some fun facts to share. Although most of the gifts here were not anything I'd personally buy (they were either too kitschy or weird), it was a fun place to stretch our legs after a long day of driving.

You can have fun here at Zip Zaps for about $100; that will get you 20 rounds I believe which is plenty of play time but kind of expensive. The equipment needs to go through a more rigorous repair/replace process, some suit gear works better than others creating a disadvantage in the play room. Some gear is just busted up and needs to be replaced but ultimately a whole new set up of more modern ware should be purchased. Their suits are quit old and bulky... The play room or "Battle Room" has been in the same arrangement since the place opened, you would think by now they would have come up with a different arrangement for the players. So as I said...needs upgrades.

Seeing the ice carvings all of these artist from around the world created is amazing. Defintely worth taking the drive in the winter to see this. They light it up at night with colorful lights, so plan on seeing it during the day and in the evening again as it is a whole different experience at night. Dress warm as it gets below zero and will not be fun if you are not properly dressed. They do have a warming building that is wonderful to warm up in.

The Murrays are both very knowledgeable about cameras of all types, and what the proper settings should be. More amazing is their ability to determine the weather in areas outside of Fairbanks where the cloud cover, and even snowstorms are not present. Ronn is also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to explaining the aurora and its formation, even explaining why red is more rare than green. They know where to go, and how to get excellent photos with the proper camera settings. They are professional and a class act. The only weak point is that their communication is not always as timely as it could be. This is especially true of the telephone. Email is better. The price is not cheap, but it is well worth the money for what you get. I will go back. If you go with them, be sure to book early, especially on weekends during the peak seasons.

We offer dog sled rides ranging from a half-hour to one-and-a-half hours. Tour the beautifully forested Alaskan winter trails on a dog sled or drive the team. Our Dog Mushing School offers customized dog mushing lessons. Sled rides or lessons can be combined with educational kennel tours. Learn about amazing canine athletes, mushing equipment, and what it means to be a musher.
It was such an awesome experience. The entire staff was friendly and knowledgeable. First thing was making sure we were suited up correctly. If not they had plenty of gear for us there just in case at no charge. After we were dressed appropriately we went outside to meet the dogs and our musher. You can tell the dogs really love to run and they couldn’t wait to get started. Our guide was Jameson who has been doing this for a while and bred all the dogs we ran with. Just an awesome experience would reccomend to everyone
