Evening Arctic Circle Air Adventure

After checking in at the airport, you will board your Piper Navajo Cheiftan, which holds up to 6 to 8 guests, depending on weight. Fly north from Fairbanks and wonder at the story of the vast and remote land below on this round trip journey by air over the Arctic Circle. Witness remnants of the gold mining that continues nearly 100 years after the yellow metal first brought newcomers rushing north. You will see sections of 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, and thrill at the excitement of crossing the Arctic Circle.

Take in the rugged and magnificent Brooks Mountain Range as the flight route passes just south of the Gates of the Arctic National Park.

You will experience a ceremonious Arctic Circle landing in Coldfoot, and then proceed to Wiseman, a wilderness community on the Middle Fork Koyukuk Rive. Upon your return to Fairbanks, you will receive an official Arctic Circle Adventure Certificate.

A memorable experience

Flying up past the Arctic Circle was thrilling enough, but this tour did not stop there. The visit to the remote town of Wiseman was educational and interesting. The pilot and guides were informative and friendly.

We were excited to fly over the Arctic Circle and this trip was so much more than that. The pilot was very friendly, patient and informative - and his landings were super smooth which is always a plus! Being transported up to Wiseman was informative and so interesting. The native we met there, Jack, was not what any of us expected. This excursion was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska, and we would highly recommend it!
