Arctic Alaska Independent Travel Specialists


Thank you for your interest

in Alaska's Arctic!

Travel in Alaska’s Arctic is always an adventure.  Much of the region is accessible only by air, while the only land route through the region is the Dalton Highway.  The Dalton Highway leads north from Fairbanks, crossing over the Yukon River and the Arctic Circle, traversing the Brooks Mountain Range, and passing ovNorthern Alaska Tour Companyer the Arctic Coastal Plain before terminating on the shores of the Arctic Ocean at Deadhorse, the service community for Prudhoe Bay.  This is a rugged land route through extremely remote country.  The communities visited are situated in areas where many of the amenities common in today’s modern world are nonexistent.  Whether flying into a remote village or traveling the rugged Dalton Highway, it is the spirit of the traveler which is unquestionably the key to making the most of a travel experience in Alaska’s Arctic.

The remoteness of Alaska’s Arctic often makes it too expensive and time consuming for the Alaska traveler to visit independently.  Our one-day and multi-day adventures allow the traveler to explore this remarkable region in a comprehensive yet economical way.

If you are one of the many visitors thinking of travelling north this spring break we recommend making reservations before travelling to Fairbanks.  Interior Alaska is a HOT destination for spring break.  Word is out that Alaska's Arctic is a prime destination to see the northern lights / aurora.  This is not just us saying it - science backs us up.  

1 - Darkness - It needs to be dark to see the northern lights / aurora. While spring is bringing us 5 - 7 minutes of day light a day -- our nights are still black enough to enjoy the lights.  Aurora Season is August 21 - April 21 because that is when our nights are black enough to enjoy the lights. 

2 - Location - The Aurora Oval cuts over Alaska right above Coldfoot in Alaska's Arctic.  This is the line the scientists have identified as WHERE the lights begin in the northern hemisphere and branch north/south from there depending on how active it is on any given day.

3 - Weather - While we can't control the weather, due to our interior location and protection from the Brooks Mountain Range to the north and the Alaska Mountain Range to the south, our nights are statistically clearer than other popular aurora destinations around the globe who are coastal and have more cloud coverage

4 - Dedicate 3 or more nights to looking for the lights.  This may be the harder part because when we and others say dedicate the night we do not mean looking out at 9:00 PM and if they are not out going to bed.  Dedicating a night is not planning to go to bed until after 4:00 AM.  Waiting and watching.  Thus picking a tour that has other activities is popular to keep your mind engaged while you wait.
