Tour Overview

This winter day tour from Fairbanks takes you by bus on a guided trip up the Dalton Highway into the Alaskan Arctic. As you depart Fairbanks, you will pass gold mines and views of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. Walking on the Arctic tundra will give you a sense of the vast scale of Alaska’s Arctic Region. Drive all the way north to the Arctic Circle where you will receive an official Arctic Circle certificate. On the way back south to Fairbanks, stop and marvel at the scenic beauty of Alaska and Canada’s famous waterway, the Yukon River. This Arctic Circle Northern Lights Driving Tour then returns to Fairbanks at night (between 3:00 am and 4:00 am) in order to maximize your opportunity for the best views of the Northern Lights. At least half of this tour’s duration will be spent at night looking for the Northern Lights.
