Alaska Arctic Tours

Want to make an Alaskan jealous? Complete your vacation with a tour of the Arctic Circle. One third of Alaska lies above the Arctic Circle, but it is so vast and so remote, that most residents don’t get the chance to explore it. Also, many guests don’t put this option on their itinerary due to time constraints. But if you have the extra time, this is an opportunity that should not be missed. You will witness the vast wilderness north of the Arctic Circle and the fascinating cultures who call this region home.
