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.

Our guide Carol with the NATC was amazing. She was so passionate about sharing her knowledge with us of the Alaska wilderness. From the moment she introduced herself, she was energetic and eager for us to experience the majestic Aurora that evening (which we did). One of the best guides we have ever encountered in our travels. Thanks again Carol,... More

I had wonderful email communications with the staff who gave us excellent advice on our planned road trip to Coldfoot. We ended up booking an extra night at Coldfoot due to the length of the drive. We booked the Safari trip & the Aurora viewing at Wiseman. Both were excellent and we wished we had booked longer. This company caters... More

We crossed the Arctic Circle on January 20, 2015. Kate, our driver and guide for Northern Alaska Tour Company gave us personalized service due to the small group size and large van. As she drove she explained what we were seeing as well as interesting historic background info via a microphone. We stopped periodically to view and photograph remarkable sites... More

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
