Evening flight to Coldfoot, 63 miles above the arctic circle on the Dalton Highway. Excursion by van to Wiseman. Excellent tour. The pilot, tour guide, and presenter in Wiseman were extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. Had a great time! Would do it again.

On my recent trip with Northern Alaska Tour Company, I flew to Coldfoot in a small plane with the pilot and 6 other people, then road in a van to the Artic Circle, and a small motor coach back to Fairbanks. It was an awesome day. I had the incredible opportunity of sitting in the co-pilot's seat, and had a... More

This review isn't about a day tour with Northern Alaska Tour Company. Rather, my brother & I have just returned from a trip up the Dalton Highway and back, and we rented a car from Arctic Outfitters / Northern Alaska Tour Company to do the drive. This review is for the company's car rental service. After we arrived in Fairbanks,... More

Took the Winter tour Arctic Circle and Northern Lights trip. Great people, fantastic scenery, informative, fun, and a bit bouncy. Be prepared for a road that is worse than you can imagine. A very long day for an old man, but worth every minute and every dollar. I can say that I drank a beer in the Arctic. I recommend... More

Our Guide was not very friendly and could not answer many of our questions. Also we drove with an old van, so the long trip was not comfortable enough to enjoy the surrounding nature completely.

We visited Coldfoot last week and were delighted to two nights of amazing aurora views! Our trip with Carol was very entertaining and fun--she made being in a tour bus almost bearable (at least for that length of time). She knew about the history of Alaska, the pipleline, and geology. All interspersed with entertaining stories and all told with her... More

We agree with a previous post about breaking the trip down into different segments for review. We chose the Aurora Fly/Drive as we read about doing the drive alone being too much. It is true. Driving just one way was enough. If you can afford it, fly up and drive back. My son and I flew with Darren (I think)... More

Recently went on a Dalton Highway/Aurora Viewing tour with this company. We mostly booked due to our desire to see the aurora while in Alaska. And while most of the tour was fine, if not a bit boring (14 hours in a bus), we were quite disappointed in being booked into an aurora viewing tour without warning this late into... More

Arctic Circle Drive. I knew the trip would be long and it was. It was very cold so the windows in the bus iced/frosted over on the inside. The tour company provides ice scrapers; however, an old credit card worked better. Videos on the pipeline were very nice. The DVD player stopped working or hung up during videos. I would... More

Great plane ride, only 4 people and then a long van ride back but stopped at a great cabin with a guide named Karen who was totally entertaining...we did see the aurora in all it's glory and then back to Fairbanks.
