We didn't have a lot of time, but wanted to get into the Arctic Circle. The Arctic Circle Winter Fly Trip was perfect for our schedule. The flight up to Coldfoot, AK, was during the day, so the views of the terrain were magnificent! Our pilot did a great job of commenting on places, pointing them out to the eight... More

The "Aurora Fly/Drive Tour" is actually 4 mini tours in one and needs to be reviewed that way; Segment 1 is a breathtaking plane ride to Coldfoot camp. The pilot, Darrin, obviously has done this many times. To say he was quite knowledgable would be a huge understatement. We were very entertained with his commentary for the entire flight. Darrin...

We booked "Arctic Circle Winter Drive Adventure" for 2 pax. The Driver Sam is very friendly and talked about many interesting things about everything along the long drive. Apparently it requires decent driving skills as we were driving on icy & slippery Dalton Highway and Sam is capable enough to handle it safely. On our way back to Fairbanks we... More

By far, one of the top 3 places on our 19 day Alaskan trip! We had booked the Arctic Circle trip a year in advance. We arrived on time at 6 a.m. and were greeted by a few staff members. We ordered our lunch when they were going to send via FAX so it would be waiting for us when... More

...make this tour company an iconic Alaskan experience. With many options to chose from based on your time in Fairbanks NATC has something for everyone. I did the fly/fly Arctic Circle Tour and thoroughly enjoyed the scenic flight, professionalism and skill of our pilot. And although part of the flight was in cloud cover, our pilot kept us occupied with... More

While on holiday in Alaska in September 2014 we took a flight over the Arctic Circle. We had beautiful weather and it had snowed only 2 days before. It was AMAZING, AWESOME!!! The tour took about 5 hours. We landed in Coldfoot and drove North to Wiseman only half hour drive where a local met us and gave us a... More

My Wife and I took the Artic Circle drive tour to the Artic Circle on the 14 of September. At our arrival we were greeted by two representatives of the company who very cordially explained the schedule and how the tour would proceed. At the bus the driver-guide introduced herself and guided us through all the safety procedures. The vehicle... More

My Husband and I took the Aurora Fall fly/drive tour to Coldfoot on the 22nd August in the hope of seeing the Northern Lights. Firstly we took the 1 and a half hour flight to Coldfoot with John our pilot. He kept us interested with details about the area we were flying over. We spent a couple of hours at... More

We took the day flight from Fairbanks to Barrow on an 8 passenger Piper Chieftan. Two other couples were on the flight with us. We wanted to see the northern-most city in the US, the Arctic Ocean, and in general get a sense of what it is like to live in a place like Barrow, Alaska that is so remote... More

The company was totally upfront about how long the day would be, but until you spend that much time on the bus you just don't realize how very long it is. We took the Arctic Circle trip and though I'm glad we did it, we would probably choose to drive it ourselves the next time. The positives - Kate, our... More
