What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.
Your companions will be heading back to Kotzebue but you and your guide will fly south and west from the Kobuk to Bering Land Bridge National Preserve. Arriving mid-afternoon we have time to set up camp before embarking on the first of several hikes on the tundra.
A full day in Bering Land Bridge. We will visit the hot springs, hike the volcanic landscape, explore the rock formations that dot the tundra, and watch the variety of birds and wildlife. With constant daylight, energy and imagination are the only limits to what we can do.
Take a last dip in the hot springs or take another hike in search of birds. By late morning our pilot returns to take us to Cape Krusenstern. After a 2 hour flight we land on the beach and set up camp within sight and sound of the Chukchi Sea. The coast offers a whole new suite of birdlife and vistas. We can hike the beach, explore the ancient beach ridges or trek inland into the rocky hills.
We get to spend all day exploring Cape Krusenstern. Perhaps we will watch musk ox calves cavorting in the willows or maybe spend the morning visiting with Eskimo fishermen. We can climb into the hills away from the sound of the breakers and walk the long limestone ridges. It won’t get dark so we can adventure all night!
By late morning we reluctantly break camp and await our pilot. Its a quick flight back to Kotzebue and we arrive in time (weather permitting) for the evening flight out of Kotzebue to the busy world beyond.
