WEATHER ALTERATIONS AND THE UTQIAGVIK EXPEDITION
Weather in Alaska's Arctic can and does affect flying conditions. Weather may require alteration of a portion or all of the scheduled tour itinerary.
Due to the variable conditions on the Arctic Coast, the Utqiaġvik Expedition includes a built-in weather alternate. If current or forecast weather conditions do not allow us to land at Utqiaġvik we visit another village, Anaktuvuk Pass. If weather does not allow us to land at Utqiaġvik or Anaktuvuk Pass, we visit the communities of Coldfoot & Wiseman. The price differentiation follows:
Anaktuvuk Pass --- $589 / person
Coldfoot/Wiseman --- $559 / person
It is very important that guests understand these alternatives and are aware that these are built-in to the experience. If the above mentioned alternative scenario is not consistent with what one is looking for in a tour experience, the Utqiaġvik Expedition is NOT the appropriate choice.
Should weather require an overnight stay, guest is responsible for cost of accommodations.
