Join us on a private guided trip in ANWR. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the least visited and most remote areas left on the North American continent. The area is known for the 130,000 animal strong Porcupine caribou herd that migrates through this area every year to reach their coastal calving grounds. This area has been threatened by potential oil development for many years and we hope to keep that from happening by taking visitors into this beautiful and remote area. We will start this trip from Fairbanks. We fly north of Fairbanks and across the arctic circle to the small Athabascan Indian village of Arctic Village.A smaller bush plane will take us to the headwaters of the Kongakut.

Our first day out in the wilderness will be spent exploring the rivers source. The next 10 days we will float the river and take layover days to hike in the open tundra and mountain ridges and may see grizzly bears, caribou, wolves, musk ox, Dall sheep, arctic fox. This is a rare opportunity to see this vast remote piece of wilderness in North America. ANWR is over 19 Million acres of untouched roadless wilderness.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

- Bush flights from Fairbanks
- All boating and safety gear
