I signed up for this trip (4 day, 3 night) recently. The office staff was friendly, but did occasionally not return phone voicemails. Very easy to book and clear instructions on what to bring. Tour guides were all very friendly, provided great information, and made it clear that safety was their #1 priority. Unfortunately for our trip it was quite... More

We didn't get to see the aurora. Boo. But that's not the reason for the rating. The driver was a really nice gentleman. The trading post was actually pretty comfortable inside and they had hot soup for everyone. But, for all the advertisements, I was a bit disappointed. The vehicles used are pretty old and rattle you (even accounting for... More

Really enjoyed our trip to coldfoot to see the northern lights. Rode a24 person bus along the dalton highway stopped at several locations for pictures and meals. Very attentive to people's needs for restrooms. Stayed in 2 nights in coldfoot at a truckers stop. Food there was very good. Several tours were offered. We enjoyed the brooks mountain range tour,...

We did the artic circle with the northern lights option to and from fairbanks. Danny was our tour guide. She was VERY knowledgeable and loved her job. She talked for a lot of it on the way there and half of the way back. She knew a lot of things and gave a good history of everything you passed and... More

Flew to Coldfoot, Alaska with Northern Alaska Tour Company. A beautiful day and stunning scenery. A full day of flying and touring. After landing in Coldfoot, we boarded vans and made our way to the Arctic Circle, the Yukon River, the Alaska Pipeline and down the Dawson Highway. After a transfer in Joy, Alaska we had brief van trouble that... More

Weather affects travel. A company can deal with it poorly which will ruin your trip, or a company can deal with it well and reduce the disappointment of itinerary changes. Thankfully, we experienced the latter with this company. We were scheduled on the Aurora Fly/Drive, flying to Coldfoot, and then driving back to Fairbanks. They were very up front before... More

Went on the date tour with Rob to the Arctic Circle and had a blast. Per his recommendation, will definitely come back in the summer and go all the way up to Deadhorse. I recommend bringing plenty of hand and toe warmers and getting a bunch of good snacks for the trip.
