When visiting Alaska, an arctic circle tour is a must-do! The Arctic Circle is an invisible line that spans across the top of the globe, reaching eight countries. The state of Alaska is the only state from the United States within the arctic circle, and is special because of the extreme sun exposure (or lack of sun!) during the summer and winter months.

Alaskan Tours Guides
During an arctic circle tour, an experienced Alaskan tour guide will point out historic places in Chinese and Japanese languages. The tour guides will stop at any location for your pleasure. History is rich throughout the 6-8 hour drive to the Arctic Circle. Frequent stops are scheduled for your convenience and need, and water and snacks are provided.
The arctic circle tour begins on the Elliot Highway, then spurs off to the Dalton Highway. The Dalton Highway follows the Trans-Alaskan pipeline much of the way, a pipeline built to transport oil from the North Slope to southern Alaska. Your Chinese and Japanese speaking guide will stop to see the pipeline up close and learn more about this amazing piece of Alaskan history.
Experience the Rustic Wilderness
Along the way, the arctic circle tour will cross the mighty Yukon River. This majestic river of almost 2,000 miles from Canada to the Bering Sea was used as a major transportation river to mine gold before the Klondike Highway was complete. Animal wildlife viewing and scenic landscapes are a part of this tour, and aurora viewing are common during the winter months.
The Fairbanks tour to the Arctic Circle is the best way to experience the rustic territory without the worry of the drive. With Chinese and Japanese speaking guides, warm and comfortable vehicles and plenty of stories to go around, you can experience this unique journey in pure comfort.
