Arctic Circle Air Adventure
Cross the Arctic Circle! A circular land mass encompassing the earth’s farthest north polar regions, the Arctic Circle formally marks the "Land of the Midnight Sun." Fairbanks lies just 125 air miles south of the Arctic Circle so don’t miss this opportunity to cross the Arctic Circle and receive an official Arctic Circle Adventure Certificate! The Arctic Circle Air Adventure takes you north from Fairbanks across the expansive Yukon River Valley and into the Brooks Mountain Range (the Alaskan Rockies) before landing just east of the gates of the Arctic National Park at Coldfoot, Alaska. The 2½ hours spent on the ground north of the Arctic Circle focus on visits to two very different wilderness communities, Wiseman and Coldfoot, both offering the unique opportunity to learn firsthand how the very few residents living in this remote arctic region have adopted creative strategies for surviving extreme winter temperatures that can drop to -80 F. Earn an Arctic Circle Certificate upon return.
