This is an adventure you’ll be talking about for years. An once-in-a-lifetime chance to fly over the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge, the Yukon River and the Arctic Circle. At Fort Yukon, accessible only by air, an Athabascan native guide shares their way of life in the Alaskan bush. They will share details on their contemporary way of life living in this unique and rustic Northern region of the world. Put your hand in the Yukon River and travel through the wetlands keeping your eye out for wildlife. Join a select group commemorated by the presentation of your official Arctic Circle Club Certificate upon your return to Fairbanks.
