What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.
Meet your guide for a pre-trip meeting at 4 p.m. in Fairbanks at Arctic Wild headquarters.
Leaving Fairbanks we fly 250 miles, over the Yukon River, to Arctic Village. We then catch a smaller plane for a spectacular flight to the Sheenjek. We set up camp and enjoy our first night in the wilderness.
June 4 - 7
Each day will bring its own surprises. The hiking will be varied from soft tundra to long gravel bars and rocky slopes. With luck there will be wildlife to enjoy near camp. The camping is excellent and the scenery unbeatable.
A final hike before we reluctantly pack-up and begin listening for the airplane. When it arrives we load our gear and ourselves for the flight back to Fairbanks.
