Fairbanks to Coldfoot - Crossing the Arctic Circle
Depart Fairbanks in the morning and travel north on the Dalton Highway. The Dalton Highway is also known locally as the Haul Road, or perhaps even more famous as the “Ice Road”, a trucker supply route to the North Slope oilfields. Stops en route include the trading post at Joy, the Yukon River, and a ceremonial crossing of the Arctic Circle. An experienced driver/guide will provide insight and information about Alaska’s Arctic. In the evening, visit the historic gold mining community of Wiseman. Travel time today is approximately 8 hours including frequent stops. Overnight at Coldfoot Camp.
