    Who would have thought I could say a 15hr van ride with 9 strangers on a supremely bumpy road, was fun?! It was awesome! All the stops were well timed, informative, and beautiful. The guide, Jake, was knowledgeable, and skilled at navigating the Dalton. And even though the clouds were there,he showed us it was possible to see the Northern Lights burning through in some places. The skies did clear up some on the drive back, and even though it was 3am, our guide still made sure to stop where he could so we could all get out and look up. Had a great time and 10/10 would do again.

    Our guide Justin was great. Very knowledgeable. Good driver. Unfortunately, we only saw one red fox during our trip, but the weather was a factor. It was rainy and drizzly. Dalton Highway was muddy and had a billion potholes but Justin got us to the Artic Circle and back all safe and sound.

    It was a very enjoyable ride on a beautiful day. It was a long day & that was expected. There were stops for bathroom breaks & stretching your legs along the way & also opportunities to view & take pictures of the spectacular landscape. Our guide, Dave was extremely knowledgeable & very personable & shared many tidbits of info along the way. Lunch was fun! The mosquitoes appear to rival ours in Minnesota. I have a whole new respect for the men & women who drive The Dalton regularly. We were quite surprised at how warm the weather was & thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Justin was an absolutely awesome tour guide, very friendly, courteous & knowledgeable about the history of the the Dalton Highway, Arctic Circle & surrounding area. This tour is an awesome way to see this part of the state for those that have a sense of adventure and the time to do so, as this tour takes about 14 hours up to the Arctic Circle and back from Fairbanks, but the memories you make are absolutely worth & the views are beautiful!! As someone that has lived in Alaska the past 9 years I highly recommend it!! Thank you for a great day & tour!!

Our guide Justin was great. Very knowledgeable. Good driver. Unfortunately, we only saw one red fox during our trip, but the weather was a factor. It was rainy and drizzly. Dalton Highway was muddy and had a billion potholes but Justin got us to the Artic Circle and back all safe and sound.

Very fun!! Our driver, Paul, gave us lots of history and funny stories down and back. Dalton Highway is no joke, so if you get motion sickness bring something for it! And get something from the Yukon Base camp. I didn't see Arctic Circle souvenirs from anywhere else but there.

Our captain Mr.Paul was so friendly and gave very information throughout our trip. He was making sure we all were good
