Arctic Circle by Air, Fairbanks

5 hours hours | May-Sep

Introduction

This Arctic adventure begins with a small plane flight from Fairbanks, carrying you far into the Alaskan north and landing only once you’ve crossed the Arctic Circle itself.

On arrival, a 2.5 hour guided tour of a rural community will offer insights and stories about the way of life for the hardy residents who make their homes high in the American north.

Wandering across the treeless tundra provides a sense of the vast scale of Alaska and, if you’re lucky, you may spot some of those northern residents, caribou or musk ox, for which the area is renowned. The sheer size and emptiness of this region makes the Eskimo communities even more impressive, having maintained a culture in this part of the world for around 10,000 years.

Your return flight provides fantastic aerial views of the bubbling Yukon River, the Brooks Range, Gates of the Arctic National Park and the controversial Trans-Alaska Pipeline.
