Official State of Alaska Vacation and Travel Information


Far North

Scenic Anaktuvuk Pass is located in Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve, between the Anaktuvuk and John rivers. 

About Anaktuvuk Pass

Inaccessible by road, this remote village is the last remaining settlement of the Nunamiut Eskimo, a once nomadic band who shadowed the caribou migrations.

Wildlife in the area includes caribou, moose, grizzly bears and a variety of birds. Residents who hunt and trap for food and to sell the skins also offer guiding services to visiting hunters.

Things to do

Simon Paneak Memorial Museum focuses on reviving and preserving the history of the Nunamiut. Exhibits present the early natural, geological and cultural history of the Anaktuvuk Pass area, including the migrations of people across the Bering Land Bridge. Traditional clothing, household goods and trapping and hunting implements are on display. A number of day tours operating out of Fairbanks offer a stop at Anaktuvuk Pass.
