Barrow Expedition

Barrow Expedition

Depart this morning from the Fairbanks Airport for a small group experience to the northernmost Inupiat community of Barrow, Alaska. The airplane you travel on will most likely be a 9-passenger, twin-engine, Piper Chieftain although other planes can be substituted by the tour operator. This smaller plane travels between 5,000 - 10,000 feet and provides all guests with a window and an aisle seat. Enroute your flight will land at Coldfoot, Alaska where you will have the opportunity to stretch your legs, purchase lunch, and use the facilities if need be. Before arriving in Barrow you will fly across the Arctic Circle. While in Barrow the guests will visit the residential and commercial areas of the community and stop out along the Arctic Ocean coast. While in Barrow you will discover firsthand the lifestyles of Alaska's Arctic Coastal peoples with a tour of the village. You will also have the opportunity to walk the shores of the Arctic Ocean near the northernmost point on the North American Continent. Be sure to bravely dip your toe in the frigid waters of the Arctic Ocean. After your arrival back in Fairbanks you'll also receive an official Arctic Circle Certificate as a keepsake. Your anticipated arrival is between 6:00pm - 7:00pm. Please note, traveling in the remote Arctic can be difficult at times due to in climate weather systems affecting the ability to fly. Therefore, the Barrow Expedition includes a built-in weather alternate. If current or forecast weather conditions do not allow the operator to land at Barrow then you will visit another village, Anaktuvuk Pass. If weather does not allow landing at Barrow or Anaktuvuk Pass, then you will visit the communities of Coldfoot & Wiseman. If either of these alternatives were to occur, you would receive a partial refund of $270 per person for Anaktuvuk Pass or $310 per person for Coldfoot/Wiseman. In the rare occasion where weather requires an overnight stay, guests are responsible for cost of accommodations.

What To Wear

Due to unpredictable Alaskan weather, we advise dressing in layers, which will allow you to stay warm and dry as the outdoor environment changes.
