As Alaska’s visitors cross the Arctic Circle, legend has it that many pilots give the plane a slight “bump” letting passengers know they’ve crossed the legendary circle. Alaska’s Arctic is home to the Inupiat Eskimos, many who still live a subsistence lifestyle and still preserve their history verbally from generation to generation. The Far North is filled with a rich history and natural wonders, from the gold rush days of yore to the Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve.
The communities of Alaska’s Far North are accessible from Fairbanks or Anchorage via jet or small aircraft. This is one of Alaska’s most diverse regions, filled with cultural opportunities, wildlife and a landscape ranging from coastal plains to mountain ranges.
Although we have visited many places, we all agree Alaska was our best trip ever! To travel for hours and not see billboards, traffic lights (or traffic!), malls, or Walmarts was such a gift. The clean air, and water as well as the abundant wildlife and friendly people has to be experienced to be believed. In a world of SUV's, cell phones and competing egos, Alaska is a breath of fresh air. The people are genuine- no one cares how you dress or what you have. We are already planning our next trip back. Thank you Alaska!!
