Description makes it appear you will be at Arctic Circle however you fly over and look at a readout display on the plane dash to show when you fly over the imaginary line. Wilderness community is Cold Foot and there was no ceremonious Arctic Circle landing. The certificate is handed out at the tour office when you return. Nothing spectacular about Arctic Circle. The view from plane was good. Other than that - so not worth it!

I've always wanted to go across the artic circle, which attracted me to this tour. We enjoyed the flight up and our visit with the person who lives in the area was quite interesting. The number of mosquitos was amazing -- didn't enjoy that part -- but everyone says the mosquito is a state bird! We had a good clear day -- wouldn't have enjoyed if the weather was bad! Our pilot provided good narration.

This was a highlight of our trip. Jack is a knowledgeable pilot who made sure we saw many wonderful sights. Driving to Wiseman and Coldfoot gives a true idea about life above the Arctic Circle.

Loved it.
Our pilot was Jack. He provided a great flight. Flew between mountains below their peaks. Landed in Coldfoot AK. Then drove the Dalton Highway along the Alaskan pipeline.
Met another Jack in Weisman. He was terrifiic. He explained subsistence living in a village of 13 people.
This was The only tour where they didn't try to sell you stuff.

Transportation to shore excursion was good. Shore excursion was not worth the time or money spent.
