What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.
Meet your guide(s) for a pre-trip meeting at Arctic Wild headquarters in Fairbanks.
North we go! Our initial flight will go as far as Arctic Village. From there, in a smaller plane, we will fly over the mountains landing on a gravel bar. If the weather permits we will be on the north-side of the Brooks Range by mid-day. Once there we’ll set up a comfortable camp on the tundra next to the creek before heading out to explore.
Aug 31 - Sept 4
Each day in the backcountry brings something different. Some days we will take day hikes to explore the high rocky ridges, nearby limestone crags, or wander the canyons. Other days we may stick closer to camp, allowing the opportunity to fish, search for wildlife, or simply enjoy the solitude and quiet.
Weather permitting, we’ll say a final goodbye to the Arctic and the Brooks Range before boarding the plane for the trip back south. If the weather cooperates and all goes as planned we’ll arrive back in Fairbanks in time for dinner and well-deserved showers.
