Alaska Arctic Circle Tours
High above the Arctic Circle lie remote outposts and isolated native communities, perhaps now more familiar to us thanks to the ‘Ice Road Truckers’.
Follow the epic Dalton Highway, a 414 mile gravel road that links civilisation at Fairbanks with the Arctic Ocean at Prudhoe Bay. If that sounds a little daunting then we recommend taking the scenic route – flights from Fairbanks are available to Coldfoot and the Gates of the Arctic National Park, as well as to Utqiagvik, formerly known as Barrow, the most northerly city of the continent and home to the Arctic’s largest population of Eskimos. Wild and remote it may be but the Far North is far from deserted.
Immense herds of wild caribou roam amongst the wildflowers of the vast Arctic tundra, under the glow of the midnight sun.
Grizzlies, moose and musk oxen can also been seen throughout the region’s plentiful national parks.
As summer fades the Northern Lights can be seen, and the Arctic pack ice reaches land, bringing with it curious polar bears.
