What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.
Meet with your guide for a pre-trip meeting at 6:30 pm in Kotzebue.
We meet with our bush pilot and load the plane. Then fly north from Kotzebue into the beautifully wild DeLong Mountains. We may spend several hours flying in search of the big herds. Once we locate them, we will find a gravel bar or ridge top sufficient for an improvised airstrip and campsite, land and settle in.
July 2 - 4
We spend the day exploring the area looking for caribou and other wildlife. Your guide will lead hikes in hopes we can place ourselves in a hidden location in the path of the caribou.
July 5- 6
We meet the pilot for a flight south and west to the Bering Sea Coast near Cape Krusenstern. This area is frequented by Muskoxen and also hosts abundant waterfowl and shore birds in the lagoons.
We say our last good byes to the wilderness and meet our bush pilot for our flight back to toward Kotzebue.
