Arctic Circle Fly / Drive Adventure 1:00 PM
An Alaska travel experience would not be complete without an opportunity to experience firsthand the vast wilderness expanses and Alaska's Arctic. Fly from Fairbanks to Coldfoot, north of the Arctic Circle and experience an aerial view of the vast Alaska landscape. On land, tour south in the personalized comfort of your tour coach or van along the Dalton Highway, made famous by the construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. Cross the Arctic Circle in ceremonious fashion and receive an official Arctic Circle Adventure Certificate. Explore up close the amazing arctic tundra and feel the veins of ice just beneath the surface. Experience the mighty Yukon River. Enjoy a meal on your own on the banks of the Yukon River. Marvel at the majestic beauty of the northland's most famous waterway and learn of the River's storied past. View the remarkable Trans-Alaska Pipeline. Visit the Arctic Circle Trading Post, situated in the rural community of Joy before returning to Fairbanks.
Please note that in late August and early September the Aurora Borealis is sometimes visible on the evening drive prior to arriving back in Fairbanks. For departures between August 22nd and September 8th the tour operator budgets for an additional hour or so in tour length to search and observe the Aurora Borealis. As with all natural weather phenomena, the Aurora Borealis also known as the Northern Lights may or may not be visible but this is an excellent time of year to see them.
