Arctic Circle Tour

arctic-circleNorth! To Alaska’s Arctic. See The Wonder Of It All. One-Day Arctic Circle Trips

Explore Alaska’s wondrous Arctic in our one-day Arctic Circle tour. Your trip will begin early in the morning when your guide picks you up from your hotel or bed and breakfast. You will hit the highway by 6:30 a.m., driving north up the Steese Highway past the mining town of Fox. Here, you will get your first view of the trans-Alaska pipeline, which carries oil 800 miles from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez.

Your first stop will be 66 miles north, at the Tolovana River Rest Area. Here, you’ll have a few minutes to stretch, use the restroom and admire the view of the foothills. You’ll then proceed 70 miles further north on the Dalton Highway to the next rest area for more scenic viewing at a place called 100 mile. 36 miles from there, you’ll stop at the Mighty Yukon River, Alaska’s longest river, which travels 2,300 miles from the northwestern British Columbia to the Bering Sea. Your guide will travel slowly across the long bridge, so you can take pictures of the river below.

By noon, you’ll reach the Arctic Circle itself where you can have your picture taken by the sign proclaiming you’ve reached the Arctic. Here, you’ll have your lunch provided by your guide and plenty of time to explore the nearby area. On the drive back, you’ll stop at several places for picture-taking and stretching. Your guide will drop you off wherever you are staying by 6:30 p.m. At the end of your trip, you will receive an Arctic Circle Certification with your name and the date you touched foot in the Arctic.

Near the Tolovana River Rest Area, you may spot a black bear or possibly a grizzly bear. Near Finger Mountain, grizzly, fox, wolves, and occasional caribou are seen. Smaller animals, such as porcupine or marmot are also spotted along with several species of birds.
