Anaktuvuk Pass Adventure in the Arctic Circle
After checking in at the airport, you will board your Piper Navajo Cheiftan, which holds 6 to 9 guests, depending on weight. Fly north from Fairbanks and marvel at the vast and remote land below. Witness remnants of the gold mining that continues nearly 100 years after the yellow metal first brought newcomers rushing north.
View the remarkable Trans Alaska Pipeline, symbolizing the immense changes brought to Alaska's Arctic by the discovery of oil over 30 years ago. Fly over the expansive Yukon River Valley, home of traditional peoples that sustain their lifestyle and culture as they have for thousands of years.
Thrill at the excitement of crossing the Arctic Circle, and experience the rugged and magnificent Brooks Mountain Range as the flight route passes over the Gates of the Arctic National Park into Anaktuvuk Pass. The flight often stops at Coldfoot enroute. You will be greeted by your host upon arrival in Anaktuvuk Pass. Visit the village, learn of the local Nunamiut Eskimo culture, and get a firsthand glimpse at village life as it exists today in rural Alaska.
Guests are allowed one bag up to 5 pounds in weight, as space is limited. Oversized baggage will be left in Fairbanks. Please only bring what you need.
