Descripción general

Imagínate a ti mismo en el programa de televisión 'Ice Road Truckers' en este tour que te lleva por la autopista Dalton (también conocida como Alaska Route 11) desde Fairbanks hasta el borde del Círculo Polar Ártico. Durante su viaje de 14 horas al desierto de Alaska, cruce el río Yukón y observe el oleoducto Trans-Alaska, uno de los sistemas de tuberías más grandes del mundo. En el camino de regreso, observe las luces del norte (aurora boreal). La comida, las bebidas calientes y el transporte del hotel se incluyen en esta experiencia para grupos pequeños limitada a solo ocho personas.
  • Recorrido por la tarde y por la noche desde Fairbanks hasta el círculo polar ártico
  • Viaje a lo largo de la remota autopista Dalton, vista en Ice Road Truckers
  • Vea partes del Trans-Alaska Pipeline y Finger Mountain, y cruce el río Yukon en el puente EL Patton
  • Párate en el borde del Círculo Ártico y posa para las fotos
  • Déjate seducir por las luces del norte durante el viaje de regreso
  • Recogida y regreso al hotel, comida y bebidas calientes incluidas.
  • El tour en grupos pequeños limitado a 8 personas proporciona una experiencia más personalizada.
Viaja por una de las carreteras más aisladas del mundo desde Fairbanks hasta el Círculo Polar Ártico en este recorrido de 14 horas por el desierto de Alaska. Después de la recogida en el hotel de la tarde en Fairbanks, viaje con su guía informativa a lo largo de la autopista Dalton, técnicamente, la Ruta 11 de Alaska. Se detendrá ocasionalmente para estirar las piernas y tomar fotos memorables de los sitios clave. Además, mantén los ojos abiertos para ver la vida silvestre de Alaska, como zorros, alces o, posiblemente, osos, lobos o linces.
La autopista Dalton corre de norte a sur a través de Alaska, casi hasta el Océano Ártico, y es paralela al Oleoducto Trans-Alaska. Deténgase a lo largo de una sección de la tubería en la comunidad de Fox y observe su construcción mientras aprende sobre sus controversias y su impacto ambiental. Uno de los sistemas de ductos más grandes del mundo, el Trans-Alaska Pipeline fue construido en la década de 1970 para transportar petróleo crudo desde Prudhoe Bay 800 millas (1,287 km) al sur hasta Valdez.
De vuelta en la autopista Dalton, conduzca por el puente EL Patton, el único puente en Alaska que cruza el río Yukón. Con una impresionante longitud de 2,295 pies (700 metros), el puente transporta no solo el tráfico de vehículos, sino también la tubería. Tome una fotografía del puente y luego vuelva a detenerse en el camino para admirar Finger Mountain, que ofrece vistas de la tundra alpina. Cuando llegues al borde del Círculo Ártico, posa para fotos conmemorativas alrededor de la señal que muestra tu latitud de 66 ° 33 ’al norte. Absorba la belleza natural que te rodea y disfruta de los sándwiches, el café y el ponche caliente hecho en casa.
Luego, vuelva a subir a su vehículo para comenzar el viaje de regreso a Fairbanks. En este momento, pasarán de dos a tres horas antes de la medianoche, un período ideal para comenzar a observar las luces del norte. Si aparecen, su conductor se detendrá en varios lugares diferentes, incluidos el río Tolovana y el Wickersham Dome, para darle tiempo suficiente para admirar y tomar fotos de este fenómeno natural.
Su recorrido por las auroras boreales de Fairbanks concluye con la llegada del hotel a primera hora de la mañana.

I usually don't do the group tour thing, but I highly recommend this tour. The price was fairly good for 2 adults compared to the cost of a vehicle rental you are able to drive on the Dalton Highway (with limited mileage). We had a total of 4 people on our tour and didn't spend too much time in any one location, so it moved fast enough to keep my interest. :)

Our guide, Dave, picked us up on time in his tour van. The van was roomy and had large windows for viewing the scenery and wildlife. Dave was very knowledgeable about Alaska and the Dalton Highway. He was a very safe driver, even on the ice and with large trucks zipping past us. He had answers for all of our questions.

Our tour stopped plenty of times to allow us to stretch our legs and take pictures. One of my favorite stops was the Yukon River Camp. The girls that work there are so nice. They let us use their sleds so we could sled down the hill onto the Yukon River, which was quite an experience. They had a cute little "Arctic Circle/Dalton Highway" pin I picked up there for my collection.

The packed lunch they provided was pretty tasty. The sandwich was good, I just wish it didn't come with mayo. All the food was easy to eat in the van and filled me up for the duration of the tour.

The Arctic Circle sign was the highlight of the tour. We tried to get as many creative pictures as we could there (it did take hours and hours to get here after all). It was a bit nippy out and another tour bus was there, but we didn't have to wait long to have the place to ourselves.

On the way back to the city, we tried to chase the northern lights. But, unfortunately, we were unsuccessful. There wasn't a star in the sky. Dave tried his hardest by looking for openings in the clouds and stopping at many viewpoints on the way back to the city, but we just weren't lucky enough to see them.

We didn't see much wildlife on this trip - it's like they were on vacation or something. The only animal we caught a quick peek of was a lynx.

We got back to the city around 3am, making it about a 13 hour tour. Overall, the tour was fun and kept my interest and the guide was great. I'll admit, I did fall asleep in the van a few times on the way back, but I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to cross the Arctic Circle. I don't think I'd take smaller children on this tour just because of the length of the tour, but I know I plan to check out Alaska Guide Wildlife Tours again when I return.

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.
