Arctic Circle Tour
Take off for the ultimate Alaskan roadtrip as you venture north on the famed Dalton Highway to reach the Arctic Circle. Absorb the immensity of the Alaskan tundra, see the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, and cross over the Yukon River on this scenic drive to the Arctic Circle .
After you get picked up from your hotel, head north towards the Arctic Circle, stopping at a grocery store on your way out of town to pick up food and snacks for the journey. Drive across vast and barren stretches of the immense tundra, and see the Trans-Alaska Pipeline snaking its way across the landscape.
A few hours out of Fairbanks, get on the famed James Dalton Highway, which transports truckers all the way to the icy shores of the Arctic Ocean. Cover a total of 400 miles (640 km) of wild northern terrain, making stops along the way to snap photos, stretch your legs, and watch for wildlife. Cross over the blue ribbon of the Yukon River, spot the promontory of Finger Mountain, and arrive at the Arctic Circle Sign, where you can collect a commemorative Arctic Circle certificate in this far-north locale before the return drive to Fairbanks.
There are rest stops along the way. Expect to spend 10 to 12 hours for this trip. The fee includes water and transportation services to:
Fred Meyer’s™ | Trans-Alaska Pipeline | Yukon River | Finger Mountain | Arctic Circle Monument (Certificate)
