We had the best alaskan experience taking the tour.. this is by far one of the best tours we have taken.. the whole staff were so kind... We had a great time flying with matt and the bus ride back to Fairbanks was just awesome. Our tour guide mimi was fantastic and so accomodating.. she was ready for any number... More

My personal opinion for someone reading this review: rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle and drive to the Arctic circle yourself. There is not one thing along the way that you can't figure out on your own. As for the Arctic Circle certificate they provide? The US Forestry folks have a tent set up at the sign with info and... More

Regardless of mud and rain, this road/highway through the boreal forest is a great way to see how big Alaska is beyond a flat map!

This was a waste of money! It was a seventeen hour bus tour covering 400 miles of the Dalton Highway where (after the first couple of hours) not much remarkable scenery was seen . I will say that if your interest is to see hundreds of miles of the pipeline this trip might be for you. The stops were unremarkable... More

The main reason you would want to do this tour is to be able to say that you have been above the arctic circle. We did the fly both ways tour (otherwise we could have flown one way and driven 8 HOURS back). The flight was good - nice scenery, including a rare clear look at Denali (Mt. McKinley). Upon... More

I was traveling on my own in Alaska last winter and I booked a tour to Arctic Circle with this company. It was an awesome adventure, but not an easy trip in the middle of January. Oh man, I'm glad we all survived this adventurous journey through the tundra. It was pretty cold and it was snowing most of the... More

I have just come from North Alaska flight to the Arctic Circle. If someone has been on a flight in Alaska i suggest DONT go to this one. It is terribly disappointing. A flight over the mountains of Alaska, then we landed in Coldfoot and a drive to a little place where supposedly only 13 people live. Got a lecture... More

My wife and I booked this 1/2 day tour to experience a little of life above the Arctic Circle. We took the 7am circle flight out of Anchorage. Because of fog in Cold Foot we instead headed towards Bettles AK. This is a very small town accessible only by airplane. We had a total of 6 people in our plane... More

VERY long day! The tour company does everything exactly as they say. Our guide Carol was really sweet and very informative. The "highway" is a muddy mess, tons of pot holes. Carol's arms must have been shaken like crazy. This is an extremely long day even with the frequent stops for bathrooms, photos, pipeline info, etc. It's nice to say... More

The Northern alaska Tours really had a great plan for our trip to coldfoot - we took a twin engine Piper cub up to coldfoot (60 miles north of the Arctic Circle) and then a van on the return trip. The flight was beautiful - gorgeous scenery, beautiful sunshine, and very smooth, with just a few bumpies. Then, we arrived... More
