Full description
Throughout history adventurers have been drawn to the extreme reaches of our planet. On this extraordinary day trip, you will have the chance to walk in the footsteps of explorers before you as you cross the Arctic Circle and enjoy stunning views of Alaska as you've never seen it before. The day begins at 8:00 AM from your hotel, where you will be transported to the Trans-Alaska-Pipeline. Here you can glance one of the world's largest pipelines, which stretches over 800 miles (1,287 km). It is a crude oil pipeline privately owned by the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, and here you will learn the engineering and building process of this epic land-crawling beast. After a short visit to the pipeline, stop for breakfast at a rustic truck stop sitting atop a lovely hilltop. After the meal, you'll cross the mighty Yukon River before arriving at Finger Mountain. Here you will enjoy a beautiful hike on a spectacular high plateau far above the tree line. Finally, arrive at the Arctic Circle. Here you will have your picture taken and receive your very own Arctic Circle Certificate. After some time in this lovely land, venture back across the Yukon River, where you'll have the chance to walk right up to its mighty banks. Have a nice dinner before checking out the Joy Alaska Arctic Circle Trading Post. You will arrive back in Fairbanks around 10:00 PM.

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.

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!!
