What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.

August 1

Arrive in Kotzebue on the morning jet with Alaska Airlines and head over to our pilot’s hangar. Once we are assembled, we load into the plane and head south to Serpentine Hot Springs. After a picnic lunch we can take a hike for views of the nearly endless mountains. With luck, we may see wildlife like muskoxen or bears. In the afternoon we fly back towards Kotzebue stopping en-route to explore a bit more of the Park. Once back in Kotzebue, you should have time to visit the Park Service museum and take a stroll around the village, buy some art or go birding in the lagoon. Lodging included. Meals (except lunch) on your own.

August 2

Meet back at the hangar and then another breathtaking flight into the wilds. This time we head due north to Cape Krusenstern and land on the beach. This day the pilot will leave, and we have the entire day on our own without anyone waiting on us. We can beach-comb along the Chukchi Sea, photograph muskoxen or hike far inland. The sun doesn’t set and we can enjoy the wilderness as long as we like. But when we are ready for dinner the pilot will return and take us back to Kotzebue. Lodging included. Meals (except lunch) on your own.

August 3

Our last adventure together might be the best! Meet back at the hangar for a flight into the heart of the Brooks Range. We fly up the broad Noatak and then up a side drainage to the arctic divide. It is a long way from anywhere and the scale of wilderness is palpable. We will have at least four hours to hike and explore in the grandeur of Noatak National Preserve before heading back to Kotzebue where we reluctantly say our farewells. You will be back in time to catch the evening jet to Anchorage.

Such a joy to spend days where time was meaningless.  A wonderful adventure and I would like to return next year for a longer, more challenging trip.

You mentioned to me in an email that you have terrific guides - you do indeed.  Dave is a superb guide. He is personable, knowledgeable about the Arctic, and has excellent group management skills. I appreciated the time he spent teaching me to read the map, which is not easy without trails.   He allowed Adrian and me to hike at our own pace and he encouraged all of us to explore the area surrounding our campsites. I know the others would concur in my praise.

Transportation starting and ending in Kotzebue, food while in the wilderness, two nights lodging in Kotzebue.


Lodging except August 1 and 2, non-camp meals, personal clothing and gear, photographic equipment. Gratuity for guide(s).


Temperatures vary dramatically in the Arctic.  It should be hot, but it could be cool and rainy.  Temperatures will range from the 20s to 70s. Cold rains and snow are possible, but we get plenty of sunny weather this time of the year. Mosquitoes could be an issue in Gates of the Arctic so bring a mosquito head net and a small bottle of DEET repellent.

"The wilderness was spectacular, the leadership perfect."
"I am just finishing my tenth trip with you guys. As always, the trip was more than I expected and I had a great time. See you next year!"
"Of all outfitters with whom we have worked (and that is quite a number), you were by far the most organized and responsive."
"That feeling of wide open wonder, the possibilities for nearly limitless wandering, and the image of those proud caribou...that will stay with me a long time"
"Our guide was an encyclopedia on legs. He was always willing and ready to teach, to talk, to listen, to do another hike, or to lie low in camp if we were beat. He truly gave us the trip we wanted!"
