SAFETY IN THE WILDERNESS

It is important that travelers with Northern Alaska Tour Company understand that Alaska’s Arctic is a truly remote wilderness region. Traveling through vast wilderness stretches requires adequate time and preparation. Weather or mechanical factors, albeit infrequent, can result in multi-hour delays. Medical facilities are limited. Limited communication and transportation infrastructure inherently cause evacuation for illness or other emergency situations to take, at the very best, several hours to conduct. For this reason, travelers to this region should be of reasonable health and physical condition.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ANAKTUVUK PASS TOUR


Check-in: 8:00 AM • Departure: 9:00 AM • Length of tour: Approx. 7 hours • Meal: Lunch Included TOUR LENGTH Approximately three hours are spent in the aircraft (one and a half hours each direction) and five hours on the ground above the Arctic Circle. Your flight returns to Fairbanks at approximately 4:30 PM.

TOUR VEHICLES
The flight portion of the tour is in an 8-passenger, twin-engine Navajo Chieftain. Ground-touring is done as a walking tour of the community with a local host.

WHAT TO BRING

Space is limited and guests are limited to one small day pack or similar item per person. Guests with luggage over 10 pounds may be asked to leave items in storage. Be sure to bring nonaerosol insect repellant. You also might consider bringing a little cash for the village museum craft shop.

VILLAGE HOST

Your host will be a local native Alaskan village resident who will share their unique understanding of Alaska based on their personal experiences. We are confident you will find the information provided by the resident host creates a unique and realistic view of village life. Additionally, you will visit the Simon Paneak Memorial Museum, America’s farthest north museum.

GUEST SAFETY

Guest safety always takes precedence over convenience. Weather in Alaska’s arctic can and does affect flying conditions. Weather conditions always dictate safe flight altitude. At times it is necessary to fly above cloud cover, thus reducing or even eliminating aerial visibility.

DELAYS / CANCELLATIONS
Due to rapidly changing weather conditions in Alaska’s arctic, it is not unusual for flight departure times to be delayed from 15 minutes to over an hour. On rare occasions, weather or other uncontrollable circumstances may require the alteration or cancellation of the scheduled tour itinerary. Arctic Circle Certificate When you check-in or speak with a reservationist, please ensure the correct spelling of the first and last names of each person in your party. Each name provided will appear on an official Warbelow’s Arctic Circle certificate. What to Wear Dress for comfort, not to impress. Comfortable walking shoes are very important for this tour. They may get soiled in the event of rain. Temperatures may change quickly so dress in layers. Gratuities Gratuities Policy: As with other service industries tips are not required but are used to reward hosts for a job well done.
