Recommendation on the Northbound tour: For any of our adventures into Alaska's Arctic we recommend planning to arrive in Fairbanks the night prior to joining us and stay in Fairbanks the night returning with us. The return on the second day is by small plane. Small plane flying in Alaska's Arctic can be delayed or even cancelled on occasion due to weather.
