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

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

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.
