Polar Bear One Day Tour

Day tour from Fairbanks to Kaktovik and back

Viewing polar bears in the wild is one of the most unique experiences in the world. This tour takes you to Kaktovik during the fall whaling season, when polar bears wander off the arctic ice and congregate in one area. Safely view and photograph polar bears in a rare and special wildlife encounter, and visit the Inupiat Eskimo village of Kaktovik, located along the coast of the Arctic Ocean on Barter Island.
