Get Out and Explore!

The long summer daylight hours of Alaska’s Arctic offer ample opportunity to explore. The Brooks range wilderness with its vast valleys, pristine rivers, beautiful vistas, colorful tundra invites you to play outside. From an hour-long stroll on the gravel bar adjacent to Wiseman to a day of strenuous mountain hiking, there are endless opportunities for backpacking, camping, and hiking for every skill level and experience.

If you want to explore more adventurous destinations, the Arctic Getaway serves as a perfect base before you embark on excursions to the many popular destinations like Gates of the Arctic NP, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Arrigetch Peaks, The North Slope, and Deadhorse, and many other multiday river and hiking excursions.
