96% Facilities Are Outhouses

Lack of communications among your drivers. Ninety six percent facilities were outhouses with no sinks nor hand sanitizer available.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
We are sorry you were disappointed; however, we do not make it a secret that it is outhouse facilities along the Dalton Highway. The area we travel is remote and the restroom facilities are outhouses with the exception of Coldfoot Camp and Yukon River Camp. (see note below). We again are sorry you were not aware; however, we do not hide and include this information in our briefing and Tour Program. For anyone reading this - the bathrooms are OUTHOUSES along the Dalton Highway. One is going remote - away from any city services. The only spots along the Dalton Highway with flush toilets are located at Yukon River Camp and Coldfoot Camp. (Note - at this time the Yukon River Camp is experiencing plumbing issues - being remote and temperatures below zero they are looking to resolve those issues as soon as they can this winter (2021-2022) -- this is information for any visitor traveling on their own or with any other tour company along the Dalton Highway, If you have any questions don't hesitate to let us know. Thank you

Canceled because of weather. They said they would reschedule. They have not contacted me yet and it's been a week. I will call them today.

We are sorry weather affected your travels to Alaska's Arctic. I do hope you did call as we would usually take care of rescheduling at the time of cancellation when one has the time to reschedule -- if we have a tour going. Sorry again weather affected your trip - if you did not call us please do so we can clarify any communication between us. Thank you, Kathy

LOVED IT. Yes, I did get to see the Aura Borealis, so that helps. The flight up was amazing, the views were breathtaking. Well worth the trip just for that. The staff was great, the meal in Coldfoot was well priced. There is a lot of sitting around in a vehicle but that is normal. Read the description. This was a great opportunity to take a nap until our next destination. The cabin in Joy is a great place to warm up while waiting for the Northern Lights to make an appearance. The guide there was Awesome, funny and helpful. A great experience I will never forget.
