Good views excellent driver

Unfortunately the smoke blocked much of the view, but the scenery was great. The last video was definitely worth while and the stories about building the pipeline brought memories of the 70’s.

Thank you jeanne_c for joining us on your Midnight Sun Arctic Circle Drive Adventure. We appreciate you joining us and learning about the region -- yes, wish the smoke didn't block out your view and we are all hoping it goes away soon!

Aaron was a great tour guide. I loved the information he shared and he willing answered all of our questions. The salmon burgers at the Yukon River Camp were amazing. Loved the snacks on the bus too. We were well taken care of. I never lost interest given it was such a long day.

Alaska airlines canceled our flight 12 hours befor we were scheduled to take off causing us to cancel our entire two week vacation and lose our trips and lodgings. Sooo sad.

Great trip- we’ll organized!

Our driver Tom was great and this organization has their act together. Fair warning to all who do this- the road is unpaved, therefore it is incredibly bumpy and loud in the van. If you have the money and the time, do the flying option. If you can’t, this is the trip you want. Very informative. Bring a pillow for the way back, it’s a long day.

Thank you Craig_T for joining us for your Arctic Circle Adventure. And, thank you for sharing with others your experience and tips and tricks to enjoy the day....we like to say it is a full day (smile). Thank you again and best wishes for a bright fall. Kathy

Matt our drive/guide did an absolutely amazing job of keeping us informed and entertained during the trip. He is a careful and courteous driver and did an amazing job of driving during a rain storm at night. Very safe driver. We enjoyed everything about the trip. Well worth the money.

our guide/driver Sabrina was wonderful! very informative & very focused on safety - learned a lot, had fun - it's a long day in the bus - make sure you bring snacks & bug spray! (FYI - you won't see a lot of wildlife on this tour but i picked wild blueberries & got a lot of great nature pictures!)

Great Day -- Learned a ton

Overall this is a great way to spend a day while visiting Fairbanks! Booking was super easy and everyone was very nice. The tour is very cool and very informative. The Yukon River is beautiful and the Arctic Circle is amazing. My only feedback is the price. The trip is expensive and you also have to pay for food which isn't nothing. Last piece of advice -- it can get chilly! Bring a warm layer or two.
icon Response from Host , May 2021
Thank you JTE for joining us on the Midnight Sun Arctic Circle Drive Adventure. Good advise -- LAYERS. No matter what time of year layers is always a good idea. We appreciate the feedback on meals for future consideration. Happy Travels.

Easiest way to get to Arctic

This was really fun. It’s a very long day on the road, so prepare yourself for that, but all the stops along the way didn’t make it seem so bad. Stopping at the Yukon and the pipelines were welcome surprises and the food at the stop was amazing. Overall great experience... and how cool is it to say you went to the Arctic?!
icon Response from Host , May 2021
Thank you Diana_D for joining us -- so cool since you are among the 2 % of Alaska's visitors who go to the Arctic Circle. Thank you again for joining us and so glad you had fun.
