Visit Alaska's Arctic Circle on this 12-hour tour, combining a drive north along the famed Dalton Highway as well as a return flight from Coldfoot back to Fairbanks. Along the way you'll view the remarkable Trans Alaska Pipeline, and experience the mighty Yukon River as you marvel at the majestic beauty of the Northland’s most famous waterway and learn of the river’s storied past. Cross over the Arctic Circle and receive an official Arctic Circle certificate from your guide. Listen to commentary provided by your drive/guide as you share this experience with others on this adventure.

In early morning, make your way to the East Ramp Airport in Fairbanks for check-in, and to weigh bags for the return trip by plane. Your guide will share the stories of Alaska's Arctic as you leave Fairbanks along the famous Dalton Highway, with a series of stops along the way, going no more than 2-hours between breaks. Some destinations are just 30 minutes apart. At each stop, stretch your legs and get an up-close look at the Trans Alaska Pipeline, the Yukon River, the Arctic Circle Sign, a trading post situated in the rural community of Joy, Alaska. Take a walk out on the amazing arctic tundra and feel the veins of ice just beneath the surface.
While lunch is not included, guests may bring their own food or purchase lunch at the Yukon River Camp.   
Reach the Brooks Mountain Range at Coldfoot between 3:30pm and 4:30pm. You'll explore the truck stop of Coldfoot Camp until your hour and 10-minute return flight on a 9-passenger, twin-engine plane. All seats on the plane are window seats, so you'll have unobstructed views of the land you've crossed on the way north, then touch back down in Fairbanks at approximately 6pm.
