We took the one day tour, driving up in a great company of our tour guide and driver Michelle ....She was just excellent and had great experience handling guests and making them comfortable in the unknown terrain. Her knowledge of the area was exceptional and we had an awesome time at Arctic Circle, It was a lot of fun driving... More

Today I returned from this excellent well run tour. This was my fourth time touring with this company and chose it due to the prior excellent tour experiences. It was my second time on this particular tour with Robert guiding. I had Patrick previously and was delighted to see him briefly in transit. :) Both of these gentlemen were wonderful... More

We took the Arctic Ocean Adventure tour with this company. After reading previous reviews of this particular tour, I was somewhat reluctant to spend that kind of money for what could turn out to be a very uncomfortable three days. It would have been a mistake NOT to take this tour. We flew north to Deadhorse(Prudhoe Bay) to start the... More

We took the one day tour, driving up in a comfortable mini-bus, and flying back in a small plane. Our driver was excellent, very knowledgeable about the area and entertaining. We made frequent stops at interesting and out-of-the-way places, with well-timed bathroom breaks. Very interesting to see the vastness of the tundra, the incredible engineering associated with the pipeline, and... More

We took a 10 day cruise/tour to Alaska with Royal Caribbean in June and an air trip to the Arctic Circle was on our "must do" list. This excursion was arranged by our tour specialist and she handled all the details. We selected the 5 hour tour that left Fairbanks at 7pm. A shuttled was provided to and from the... More

We just did the Arctic Circle Adventure. The tour started really early at 6.30am and ended at 10:30pm. We followed the Dalton highway along the pipeline all the way to the Arctic Circle. We stopped for lunch and dinner at the Yukon River. The driver/guider was very professional. he made an effort to show us everything we possibly could see... More

We took the five hour tour to Coldfoot in the Arctic. The entire trip was efficiently handled. A certificate was also issued after the tour mentioning that I had crossed the Arctic circle. The plane was small and very old, but they claimed it was very well serviced and safe. The actual time we spent in the Arctic was very... More

Was an unplanned stop at their office on our trip to Fairbanks and what a great decision it was. We did not have too much time and requested for an evening flight to Cold Foot the same day. The staff were so helpful and fitted us in. Our flight to Cold Foot on an 8 seater aircraft flying at a... More

Our pilot Andrew was excellent & gave us info about what we were flying over throughout the flight. Our tour guide Forrest was informative & entertaining. We got a little behind on... More
