Weather alternations

Weather in Alaska's Arctic can and does affect flying conditions. Weather may require alteration of a portion or all of the scheduled tour itinerary. Due to the variable conditions on the Arctic Coast, the Utqiaġvik Expedition includes a built-in weather alternate. If current or forecast weather conditions do not allow landing at Utqiaġvik you will visit another village, Anaktuvuk Pass. If weather does not allow landing at Utqiaġvik or Anaktuvuk Pass, you will visit the communities of Coldfoot & Wiseman. Should weather require an overnight stay, you are responsible for cost of accommodations.

It is very important that you understand these alternatives and are aware that these are built-in to the experience.  If the above mentioned alternative scenario is not consistent with what you are looking for in a tour experience, the Utqiaġvik Expedition is not the appropriate choice.
