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

What an adventure. Started with a Van from Fairbanks, first day on the Dalton Highway to Coldfoot, overnight there in rustic accommodations. Stop at Arctic Circle, before crossing it. Day two is a visit to Wiseman, a wilderness community where Jack provided priceless commentary and information. Drive over the Brooks Mountain Range, cross the continental divide at Atigun Pass and... More

On Saturday, July 26, 2014, my wife and I took the tour to Coldfoot and Wiseman, Alaska flying both ways. After a few rainy days Saturday morning was bright sunshine and fairly clear skies. Our pilot, Lawrence was careful and very safety oriented. After about ten minutes in the air we had to turn around and take another plane because... More

The flow from pick up at the hotel, check in, fabulous flight with pilot Matt, guides Shelby and Justin at Coldfoot, to Wiseman, was exceptional. Jack who shared his story of living in remote Wiseman, on subsistence living, was generous of his time and superbly interesting. A truly worthwhile experience.

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
