This was my first trip to Alaska, so I had to make the trek up to the Arctic Circle. I picked 1st Alaska Outdoor School for my tour. Our guide Tom was very knowledgeable and friendly with plenty of stories to tell. The tour was great and I would recommend this company.

We had two very enjoyable tours with this company by a guide named Mike. First was a Northern lights trip late in the night and the second was a personalized trip up Dalton Highway to the Arctic Circle. Mike was very knowledgeable and friendly and made sure we enjoyed our excursions. Unforgettable experience.

We pre-booked our tour with 1st Alaska Outdoor School. On the the first day, we went to Chena Hot Springs. It's about 3 hours drive from Fairbanks and our driver for this trip is Sam. Sam is very helpful and informative. We saw two mooses on the way there which was very cool. If it's your first time to Alaska,... More

If you are in Alaska you should have taken a couple of pictures of the impressive northern lights! With this well organized photo workshop it was possible for me to get great pictures as amateur as well. 1stalaskaoutdoorschool is definitely the right partner. They did a great job!

We were picked up by a lady who drove us to a viewing lodge which was extremely well set up for Aurora viewing. The owner "Mok" was very welcoming and we spent some time talking about photography and all things Aurora. Our guide (the lady) sat inside all night reading her Kindle.... then taxied us back to our hotel

I was overwhelmed of the 3 day tour to the Arctic Ocean/Prudhoe Bay with a really nice and competent guide, Joe. He showed us really nice places and told us interesting things and stories about Alaska. Additionally we saw a lot of animals and of course the beautiful landscape. Thanks for this unforgettable trip!
