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 7 pm in Kotzebue.
We fly from Kotzebue on the Chukchi Sea north over the Brooks Range and out over the tundra. After scouting from the air for caribou we look for a place to land in the path of the migrating caribou.
We spend our time 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. There will be times when no caribou are present, but there is no end to the beauty of the arctic.
If the caribou have already passed though our area, or if our prediction of where they would be was slightly off; we will fly our camp to a new location (weather permitting).
Another full day to enjoy the solitude and beauty of North America’s greatest wilderness. More hiking and wildlife watching is the order of the day.
We say our last goodbyes to the Arctic and meet our bush pilot for our flight back to Kotzebue. If the weather cooperates you should be back to Kotzebue in the late afternoon.
