We took this package over last weekend under the Aurora package from Alaska Railroad. The actual package from Alaska Railroad flies you both ways and you cannot see any Northern Lights as the flights are all during daylight hours with a 10 minute sightseeing in Coldfoot (which my friends took) and is practically worthless! We spoke to Northern Alaska Tour... More

This tour company is well managed and take safety as their top priority. flying with Ryan was good, but small planes can be claustrophobic. Coldfoot is a great place to view northern lights and to see the northern most post office in the US. The trans alaska pipeline is an engineering marvel by itself. The cafe in Coldfoot has great...

Thank you Ganesh V for joining Ryan on the Arctic Circle Aurora Fly Drive Adventure. I like your advise on not needing to buy expensive clothing. It is true we don't provide clothing for our tour - partly because one would also need the same clothes for their time in Fairbanks so constantly changing who they have their clothing with... More

The flight up to Coldfoot is not as scenic as trips over Mt. Denali but it's still the best way to experience life above the Arctic circle. The trip is expensive and you run the REAL risk of booking your trip and then being disappointed because of heavy cloud cover. We were lucky that most of the flight was clear.... More

Thank you Will3642 for joining us on the Arctic Circle Winter Air Adventure. Sounds like you did some great research on which tour experience to take before you booked.

The flight itself was spectacular. However when we returned to Healy I had to use the outhouse. IT WAS FULL TO WITHIN A FEW INCHES OF THE TOP. A friend of mine who did the same flight a month prior HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE. Come on guys, please empty your outhouse.

We did the tour from Fairbanks to Coldfoot and while in Coldfoot, we also went to the Chandalar Shelf for a "drive" and also went to Wiseman to view the Aurora. The first night in Coldfoot the Aurora came out for a few hours (8 to 10 pm) so we thought there was no real need to go to Wiseman... More

I booked the aurora fly drive tour. This tour is amazing. You should not miss it if you go for northern lights. Plus, the flight with the small airplane is also impressive, particularly when it was flying in the valley. The trip is such well organized and the tour guide together with the driver can make sure we are cozy... More
