What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.
Meet your guide for a pre-trip meeting/ gear-check at the Arctic Wild World Headquarters in Fairbanks at 4 pm.
Our trip begins with a flight over the Yukon River and into the Brooks Range. We fly on and on, watching the world’s largest terrestrial wilderness pass below us. After crossing the Brooks Range we land on a gravel island along a small river After unloading the plane and pitching camp we will have nothing but time to explore this pristine area.
July 25 - 27
We have 3 days (and nights) to explore the Western Arctic! We can hike as much as you like, or enjoy spending our time relishing the solitude from the comfort of camp. The time is yours to enjoy.
We will wait for our pilot and then (if the weather allows) fly back to Fairbanks. We hope to be back to civilization around 7 pm. Time to take a shower!
