What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.
Meet your guide in Kotzebue for a pre-trip meeting in the afternoon.
Fly from Kotzebue straight to the Kobuk Sand Dunes. Once on the ground we will make camp and settle into our home for the week.
Day 2 - 4
We have three full days to explore the dunes. Each day we can head in a new direction. There are deep ponds and springs contrasting with the tawny sand, broad flats covered in wolf tracks and wind blown dunes which are fun to climb and offer great vistas. After a day of exploration we return to our camp for a delicious dinner. With luck and a late-August time frame, our nights may even include the aurora dancing above the dunes.
Weather permitting, our bush plane will arrive to fly us back to “civilization”. We plan to arrive back in Kotzebue by early evening. Take a shower!
