Fall Arctic Circle Aurora Fly / Drive Adventure 1:00 PM
Fly from Fairbanks to Coldfoot, north of the Arctic Circle, and view Alaska's vast wilderness en route. Cross the Arctic Circle in ceremonious fashion and receive an official Arctic Circle Adventure Certificate. Tour south back to Fairbanks in the personalized comfort of your tour van or coach along the rugged Dalton Highway. Explore up close the amazing arctic tundra and feel the veins of ice just beneath the surface. View the remarkable 800-mile long Trans Alaska Pipeline. Traverse the mighty Yukon River, and visit the Arctic Circle Trading Post situated in the rural community of Joy, Alaska. This tour departs at 1:00pm and returns to Fairbanks between 1:00am and 2:00am. In late August and early September the Aurora Borealis is sometimes visible on the evening drive prior to arriving back in Fairbanks. As with all natural weather phenomena, the Aurora Borealis also known as the Northern Lights may or may not be visible but this is an excellent time of year to see them.
A dinner stop is made near the Yukon River but meals are not included in the tour price. Check-in at least 60 minutes prior to tour time listed.
