Highlights
  • Enjoy spectacular Arctic Circle views while someone else drives
  • Get beyond Fairbanks to see remote Alaskan landscape
  • Round-trip transportation in a climate-controlled van for a comfortable trip
  • Snacks, drinks and the stew is offered for free.
What to Expect
Meet a guide at your Fairbanks hotel and then board a climate-controlled van for the 200-mile (322-kilometer) trip across the Arctic Circle. You’ll be traveling the Dalton Highway, first built as a supply road for the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, and you’ll sometimes see the massive pipeline system along the way. Snacks and drinks are provided on the road, and there’s lots to spot from the vehicle, including native wildlife and gorgeous scenery. When you reach the Arctic Circle, stretch your legs, snap some photos, and enjoy an Arctic picnic of beef stew and a sandwich (vegetarian option also available). Here, spend some time learning about indigenous Alaskan cultures, before returning to Fairbanks with an official Arctic Circle certificate.

We booked Alaska Wildlife Guide for a driving trip to the Arctic Circle during our winter Alaska trip. It was an amazing trip and our guide Matthew was great! He was entertaining and very knowledgable about the area and Alaska in general since he is native to the area. We

The guide couldn't be better. It was an enjoyable experience. I was amazed by the beauty of the country, it was kind of an alive Christmas fairy tail. The van was too noise, we lost many of the information Clare was giving us for this reason even with the PA system going on.

I only had a few days and wanted to see as much as I could. This trip was definitely long but well worth it. Towards the end Lynley had her eyes peeled for the Aurora and we were all fortunate to get to see it!!! She made plenty of stops for us to catch glimpses of it and boy

The experience itself was unforgettable and is something I’ll remember for the rest of my life. But what really made the experience great was our guide, Bob. Bob was, from the minute he loaded us up in the van, to the very end of the 14 hour tour, a grade A guide with a stellar
