Planning Your Adventure In Alaska's Arctic

Reservations

Northern Alaska Tour Company can be reached at 907-474-8600 or 800-474-1986 five days a week between the hours of 9 AM and 6 PM. The hours are extended to 24 /7 mid-May through mid-September. Reservations and questions can always be e-mailed 24 hours to adventure@northernalaska.com.

Due to Alaska's short summer visitor season and the nature of our high quality, small group excursions, it is very important to contact us early in the itinerary planning process. We are available to provide further, more detailed information regarding our excursions and travel to/within Alaska's Arctic.

Tour Availability

The exact schedule of tour departure dates varies for each of the tours we offer. Thus, it is extremely important to call to confirm availability of a specific tour date.

Travel Insurance

The cancellation policies for the excursions operated by Northern Alaska Tour Company are generous by industry standards.  Deposits for most adventures are either refundable up until 7 days prior to the tour departure or 2 days prior to the tour departure. (please see Cancellations above).

However, due to the strict nature of airline travel, the cancellation policy for the Barrow, Kotzebue, and Nome Adventures is much more strict.  For this reason, we have found many of our guests are more comfortable in making a Barrow, Kotzebue, or Nome Adventure reservation if they purchase some type of travel insurance/protection.

Northern Alaska Tour Company can arrange travel Insurance for this portion of your Alaskan itinerary or for you full itinerary with Travel Guard International.  Travel Guard International and its affiliate companies provide integrated travel insurance, assistance and emergency travel services for millions of travelers and thousands of companies throughout the world.  For more information on Travel Guard International and their various travel policies call us at 800-474-1986, 907-474-8600 or use this link to Travel Guard International to learn more.
