Utquiagvik's Walking Tour was created by touchalaska. Utquiagvik (Barrow) is located 330 mi (531 km) above the Arctic Circle, where subsistence bowhead whaling and other ancient traditions remain at the center of their culture, shared with Iñupiat achievements in the modern world.
The first 28 points are among the bus tour route.
While in Utquiagvik and calling one of the many cab companies, you don't need to know street names, only house numbers or the name of the business/organization you wish to visit. No tips are expected and cab fare prices are set by the City of Utquiagvik Taxi Commission. Ask your hotel about car rentals.
