A very good 16 hours coach tour to Arctic Circle

One hour flight in a 9 passenger piper offered great views and some wonderful history from our pilot. We landed in Coldfoot and were shuttled to wiseman, home of 13 people year round. A local resident offered us his life in this subsistence wilderness. Then a quick trip to Coldfoot for a snack before flying back. A highlight of Alaska... More

First, don't be afraid of the lengthy ride. There are plenty of stops along the way. Our bus driver and tour guide Alan was an old Alaska hand. He knows the territory well and has many stories and interesting facts to share with you. Second, don't bother packing food, water, etc. The bus had water and snacks are provided, carrots,... More

We were given information, the tour would start at 6 AM and return at 11 PM. It is only about 200 to the arctic circle and we considered... More

This is a FULL day trip to the Arctic Circle and back. Our tour guide and driver, Carol Kleckner, filled the 16 hour day with lots of fascinating information and fun facts. There were 6 people taking the tour ranging from Age 27 - 72. So this isn't just for the old folks. I think I enjoyed the small group... More

The 3 day excursion to the Arctic Ocean had to be modified due to heavy flooding and a washed out road to Prudhoe bay. NATC modified the itinierary with a flight to Barrow Alaska and a 2 night stay in Coldfoot. The trip was awesome but all the thanks goes to the tour guide Patrick. This young man was very... More

At the time we booked the trip we had no idea who to book with and as we got to Fairbanks we were assured we did ok with this company. We took the day trip to the Arctic Circle and we're not disappointed. The trip lived up to all the reviews we had read. It was long, very bumpy, tiring,... More

What an amazing trip. Flew about an hour north of Fairbanks, passing the arctic circle line, landed and travelled to Wiseman then back to Coldfoot before flying back to Fairbanks. Incredible experience. Wonderful service and a brilliant pilot in Steve
