Wir waren eine tolle Gruppe aus 7 Personen und verstanden uns alle direkt gut und haben uns über Land and Leute direkt mit Tipps ausgetauscht. Unser Guide David war super nett und hatte so viel zu erzählen. Ich selber bin Autofahren unter extrem Bedingungen gewöhnt, aber unendlich froh die Tour mit David gemacht zu haben. Er hat uns sicher durch die Nacht geführt trotz Schnee, Eis und Trucks auf der Strecke. Er ist auf Wünsche eingegangen und hat wirklich alles gegeben um die Nordlichter zu sehen. Leider war die Nacht von den Bedingungen einfach schlecht. So ist jedoch die Natur. Es gab eine ausreichende Tüte mit 2 Brötchen und Snacks. Wir hatten aber alle noch was dabei und somit bestens versorgt. Wirklich tolles Erlebnis und zu empfehlen …
Ricky is the best! He made sure everyone was comfortable. Very informative and funny! Long drive but Rucky made it easy for us.
He really tried to look for the Northern Lights. We didnt see it but overall, it was a great trip. Love the Yukon River Camp!!
What a long trip! They picked us around 1:20pm that day, then we back to hotel around 5:30am in the morning. Even it was a long trip, it's worth to have an Arctic Circle experience. We explored beautiful attractions on the way to the Arctic Circle, and we chased northern light on the way back. Ricky is awesome, he's humor and REALLY talkative. You won't feel bored along the road!
This was a really nice tour and I highly recommend it. A few things you should know: 1 Yes, it's a long tour that returns in the early morning hours, but don't let that scare you away! There are several stops for restroom breaks, snacks, photo opportunities, etc. 2. Take the tour when much of the drive up will be in the light of day. We went the middle of March. It was just getting dark when we arrived at the Arctic Circle. That means for most of the drive we had amazing views and got to walk out on the frozen Yukon River. If you go in the dead of winter, it will be dark and you won't see much. 3. We took this tour because a Northern Lights Only tour may end up just being disappointing. Seeing the Northern Lights are 50/50 at best, but this tour is great even if you don't get to see the Aurora. We made it to the Arctic Circle, and had a great time, learned a lot and saw a lot, even though we didn't see the Northern Lights due to it being snowy and overcast. The driver stopped several times, but it just was not going to happen! However, we caught the lights the next night outside of Fairbanks so all was not lost. This tour was a highlight of our trip.
There were only 4 of us on the tour which was nice but with my husband up front and a couple on the first bench seat I actually had the rest of the van to myself but, the windows were small so I had a very hard time seeing anything and the head set didnt work well so I couldnt hear anything over the rattle of the van. I tried pushing on the window trim to silence some of noise but my arm got tired. The lunch was horrible. The veggi was a couple of pieces of cheese and sliced carrots in rolls. I typically dont like plain potatoe chips but I ate them because I was hungry and it was a very long day. The sites were amazing and our guide, Ricky, tried really hard for us to see the lights...with no luck. By the time we got back to our hotel I was clostraphobic and naucious from not having a decent view and crabby from being so uncomfortable.i strongly recommend seeing the arctic and Yukon but would try a different tour company.
Our tour guide name Mike. He is really fun and love Alaska. He had enough knowledge to tell about Alaska. He is a good driver. Dalton Highway is a definitely dangerous highway, you wont want to drive if you don't know how. Mike knew what he was doing. On our way, he will stop and park on the side way for us to watch the wile animals if we saw some. On our way back, he was looking the northern lights for us. It really helpful especially for us, since we did not know what should be expected for at the very first day. The trip is kinda pricey, but you wont't regret to hire some to take you at all. It actually the best decision we made for our trip.
How can you go to Fairbanks and not take a drive up to the Arctic Circle? You can't! Or at least, you shouldn't. The northern lights don't always cooperate but the particular winter beauty and desolation of the road out of Fairbanks and the Dalton Highway along the pipeline, along with artisan Dorothy and her cabin on the Yukon River shore yes!, and the photo ops duh make this tour a must. Our guide's name escapes me, but he was a refugee from New Jersey, Michigan, and Los Angeles who lives for fishing, quotes Robert Service, and makes extra money driving first-time, only-time visitors up to the Arctic Circle and back - quintessential Alaska.
The tour was long, but thanks to Ricky’s (the guide) humor and talkativeness, I didn’t feel bored and tired at all. Ricky had so many secret and beautiful places for us to enjoy the auroras, and I had a great time to travel with him.
This is a very interesting tour. Ricky, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the route and he explained a lot of things while on the road. However, his microphone broke down midway so since we were sitting at the back of the van, we could barely hear him. We felt safe and secure driving on the deserted road. We saw some light aurora activity on our way back to Fairbanks so that was also good. On the way back we took in a couple who was saved by a truck as their rental car was stranded in the snow. We had enough stops for food/coffee/toilet which made the trip feel less long. It would be better if we were able to hear Rickly the entire time.
