Far North Alaska

Explore the enchanting world of Arctic Alaska, where the sprawling summer tundra blooms with delicate wildflowers along the Arctic coast. This is the homeland of the Inupiat Eskimos, where the Northern Lights dance in the sky under the Midnight Sun.

In this unique environment, traditional Eskimo lifestyles harmonize with modern oil field technology, and vast herds of wild caribou roam a land that is both rugged and delicate. Migratory birds and marine mammals thrive, making this region a haven for nature enthusiasts. Discover some of America’s most pristine wilderness parklands, including Gates of the Arctic National Park & Preserve, Noatak National Preserve, and Kobuk Valley National Park, collectively forming one of the world’s largest preserved areas.

Witness the magnificent Porcupine Caribou Herd, consisting of 180,000 members, as they migrate through the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Explore the major towns of Kotzebue, Barrow, and historic Nome, home to Alaska’s largest Eskimo communities. The only road leading into Arctic Alaska is the Dalton Highway, a gravel service road connecting Prudhoe Bay to the state’s public highway systems. Stay tuned for updates and stories from this captivating region!
