My friend and I traveled to Alask at the end of June and stayed through July 13, 2012. We booked a tour with 1st Alaska Outdoor School driving up the Dalton Highway to the Arctic Circle -- My expectations was a long trip that would be relatively boring But I was pleasantly surprised! Althoguh the trip was long, it was fascinating. We had a great guide - Bill Gill, an Alaskan homesteader who regaled us with true stories of his Alaskan experiences and taught us so much about the Tundra and the pipeline. We had wonderful food at a truck stop that resembled a dive. So wasn't I surprised to find curry dill salmon soup on the menu -- to die for!! We traveled in a van with our driver and five other people -- The scenery was beautiful and the weather superb -- Sunny and hot!! 80 degrees at the Arctic Circle! Stopped at a tiny gift store on the Yukon River Climbed down the bank to touch the water So the drive was long but the guide terrific, the food wonderful and the company great -- Scenery much different than I expected -- I highly recommend this tour very "down to earth" and real!! Be sure to book this one a "Don't Miss" experience. Obviously I higlty recommend it!
