Great trip to Arctic Circle on the road to Prudhoe Bay TripAdvisor

Kevin was great. Lots of information on the pipeline, arctic circle, environs. Fabulous to drive the Dalton Road that goes to Prudhoe Bay. AND be at the Arctic Circle. A long day but well worth it!

Must Do In Fairbanks TripAdvisor

Among the Top Experiences ever. Kevin was our Tour guide. He was very knowledgeable, helpful and made sure we see Northern Lights on the way back from Arctic Circle. Highly recommended when you are in Fairbanks.

Unforgettable Experience TripAdvisor

What an amazing trip! Yes, it was a long day, but it was SO worth it. If you want to see Alaska, the pipeline, lots of black spruce, a diverse landscape, and travel the Dalton Highway and cross the mighty Yukon River to the Arctic Circle, this trip is for you! Our tour guide, JJ, was so knowledgeable about the area. She told our group about her experiences living in Alaska, bringing it to life for us. I also recommend ordering lunch and supper from Yukon River Camp for the trip. The food was delicious.Super time!

A unique road-trip to the arctic circle! TripAdvisor

Really enjoyed our road-trip to the arctic circle! Tony was extremely entertaining and had many stories relating to the trip. He made the very long day go fast. The stop for pie was great. The best blueberry pie I’ve had in a long time. The Yukon river camp was a perfectly timed stop for lunch and the use of the restroom facilities. Some weather conditions made the finger mountain stop quick. Luckily the weather had improved by the time we reached the arctic circle. The certificates are a nice touch and having them officially stamped was a plus. Overall a road-trip that happens once in a lifetime.

TripAdvisor A Really Great Way to Spend the Day

We had a great trip up to the Arctic Circle! Tony was super knowledgeable about the land and had great stories to tell throughout the drive. The Dalton Highway is absolutely stunning, we even saw a mama bear and her cubs right before we got up to the Circle! Crossing the Circle was really cool, as was the Yukon River and the camp stop there. We learned a lot about Northern Alaska and I want to come back for a longer trip for sure. I really enjoyed my trip and Tony was a great guide!
