New Departure: Ultimate Northern Lights

Additional departure dates have been added to Backcountry Journeys’ tour schedule for our popular Ultimate Northern Lights photography workshop.

Spots on our original trip dates in October have filled up faster than normal, so we’ve decided to open up new departure dates so that more folks can join in on the fun in Fairbanks!

Join us on this exciting seven-day, lodge-based, photography workshop that will leave you with new skills, and dazzling images of the Aurora Borealis from several outstanding locations around Fairbanks, Alaska.

We will switch gears, so-to-speak on this tour, as we awake for dinner, and then photograph at night. Evenings will be spent in search of the Lights at either a remote cabin, yurt, or the back roads of Alaska. Experience the haunting magic of the Aurora Borealis on additional departure dates in October 2020.

Kenton Krueger








Kenton Krueger grew up and spent the first 33 years of his life in the corn country of Omaha, Nebraska. After studying aviation at the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Aviation Institute, he “conned” his way into the newsroom at the award-winning Omaha World-Herald where for 3+ years he wrote and photographed news articles on a variety of topics such as community events, travel and even mixed martial arts for the sports department. Yet something was missing. While on backpacking trips to Grand Teton and Grand Canyon National Parks in the mid-2000’s he was quick to realize that the wildlands of the western United States stoked a fire in his heart as nothing else could. This realization led to relocation to Flagstaff, Arizona, and he hasn’t looked back. He has spent the past several years guiding backpackers, hikers and photographers into the wild places of the American West such as Havasu Falls, Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone National Parks as well as in the Grand Staircase Escalante in southern Utah. In addition to backpacking and camping, his adventures include rock climbing, exploring the slot canyons of southern Utah, mountain biking, and bagging 14ers in Colorado’s San Juan Mountain Mountain Range. Kenton is a trail runner, former pilot, newspaper photographer, and writer. Kenton looks forward to utilizing his years of guiding experience, combined with his passion and experience behind the lens to provide memorable and unforgettable experiences at the wild places we will visit together.
