Experience the thrill of chasing the Midnight Sun! Learn to photograph the dramatic sunset colors in Denali with a maximum of 4 participants per tour. This tour provides a personalized photography experience featuring a prolonged “magic hour.” Revel in the beautiful alpenglow on the mountains and spectacular cloudscapes. During mid-summer, sunset is close to midnight due to our far north location. The sunset colors last for an extended period of time, giving us ample opportunity to move to several locations during “golden hour” for instruction and experimentation with different compositions, focal lengths, and exposure settings. This tour also offers good potential for moose sightings because there is less human activity during this time of day.


  • Professional tripods and filters are provided. Digital cameras with long zoom lens are available to rent, and guests keep the memory card.
  • Air-conditioned vehicle

What to expect


Our tour is designed to benefit all skill levels with any type of camera (smart-phones welcome). No matter what gear you have, our guides will be able to help you progress as photographer. Beginners will learn techniques to get more out of their equipment; how to read light and adjust their exposure settings to photograph Alaska’s stunning scenery and wildlife in a way that “does it justice.” Advanced photographers will enjoy the luxury of being driven to the best locations without having to rent a car or trying to scout the vast and unfamiliar landscape.

Stop At:

• Denali National Park and Preserve, Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska

This was a very enjoyable tour with a guide who knew photography and the area. Todd was able to get me some really nice evening landscape photos as well as some wildlife shots of beaver and moose. He revealed some tips and tricks which definitely upped my game in photography.
