What people are saying about Fairbanks

It was a very enjoyable ride on a beautiful day. It was a long day & that was expected. There were stops for bathroom breaks & stretching your legs along the way & also opportunities to view & take pictures of the spectacular landscape. Our guide, Dave was extremely knowledgeable & very personable & shared many tidbits of info along the way. Lunch was fun! The mosquitoes appear to rival ours in Minnesota. I have a whole new respect for the men & women who drive The Dalton regularly. We were quite surprised at how warm the weather was & thoroughly enjoyed the day.

The experience is unique and worth doing. Having lived in Sweden and having visited Iceland, visiting the Arctic Circle from Northern America, was a meaningful target. You get to see plenty of unusual landscapes. Jake is very knowledgeable and provided answers to all questions we had. Probably if the fly visitors on one direction would be a more efficient a way of doing this trip.

Our guide Ricky was very knowledgeable of the area. We had a good snack on the trip and excellent lunch (home made stew). And we had people from all over the world on our trip with us

Long full day-our guide Jake made it so interesting it didn’t seem so long. Very informative trip with amazing views. Thanks Jake for a great day!!!

Very interesting!

Ken our tour guide knew a lot and told us a lot. We also felt very safe with him on the Dalton Highway.
