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.

Wonderful ! ! !   5/28/06 to 7/11/06   Never a drop of rain either in the Denali Park or the Kenai Peninsula.   Rented a car in Anchorage and explored for 11 days.  Picked up a cruise in Seward to Vancover for 8 days.  No rain-no bugs.  and NO BIG animal bites.  Plenty of beautiful spots to hike.
