On this incredible three-day adventure, experience Alaska as never before. Get up close and personal with wildlife and enjoy the beautiful land before you.
Day 1 - Yukon, Coldfoot and Trans-Alaska-Pipeline
The day begins at 8:00 AM from your hotel, where you will be transported to the Trans-Alaska-Pipeline. Here you can get up close and personal with one of the world's largest pipelines, which stretches over 800 miles (1,287km). It is a crude oil pipeline privately owned by the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, and here, learn the engineering and building process of this epic land-crawling beast.
After a short visit to the pipeline, stop for truck-stop breakfast. After your warming meal, cross the mighty Yukon River before arriving finally at the Arctic Circle. Here, have your picture taken, and receive your very own Arctic Circle Certificate. Then, visit Coldfoot's state-of-the-art visitor center and have dinner here. Spend a romantic evening in the gold mining village of Wiseman.
Day 2 - Arctic Tundra
After your filling continental breakfast, venture to the Brook's Range for breathtaking views of these rugged peaks around us. If you're lucky, you'll even be fortunate enough to spot some grizzly bears or dall sheep. Continuing along, reach the Arctic Tundra, filled with an array of Musk Oxen and Caribou in their natural habitat. As you snap some pictures, you will be amazed at the views and beauty of this unspoiled land.
Eventually we arrive at Deadhorse -- the supplying town for Prudhoe Bay. We will receive a quick tutorial in safety while in the oil field, as well as a history lesson of its origins. Prudhoe Bay was named in 1826 by British explorer Sir John Franklin after his classmate Captain Algernon Percy, Baron Prudhoe, and is an incredible place to see the Midnight Sun and Arctic Ocean. From here, venture out to the oil fields, which only operate in the winter months when the ground is hard enough to support the heavy machinery.
Tonight, have an early dinner, driving back through the Arctic Tundra and Brooks Range late in the night. Stay tonight in Wiseman.
Day 3 - Wiesman
This morning, start early for a hike through historic Wiesman and along the Koyukuk river. Wiseman's enormous population of 21 individual residents is a picturesque and quaint Alaska town, and the walk will introduce you to some of its more unique features. Also witness the Koyukuk river, which is one of a number of Alaskan communities threatened by erosion due to rising sea levels.
Have a late breakfast at Coldfoot camp before setting off on a stunning nature hike in the high plateau of Finger Mountain, high above treelike. During your walk you will be able to stroll right up to the mighty banks for the Yukon river, which will impress you with its majesty and history. Your day ends with a return to your lodgings, where you part ways until next time.
