Our guide Randy from 1st Alaska Tour was great ! He is very experienced in outdoor survival especially winter survival due to his prior experience in outdoor survival for the past 30 years not forgetting to add that he is a former US marine. During the trip, he gave us a lot of information on Alaska wildlife and share with us on his past encounters during his remote stay in the wilderness. He made numerous stops on the way to the Artic Circle for scenic views and photo shots, and on our way back we also manage to catch the beautiful sunset. I must say 1st Alaska Tour is a very good tour agency with experienced guides and strongly recommend using them for their professionalism.
Complete waste of 12-14 hours. Nothing to see and nothing to experience. Yes, one can claim that she/he was on the arctic circle. That's all. The road was brutal and 10 hours on non-paved road took a toll on us.
Plan for a long day, but one filled with current facts, history, geographical information, panoramic views and stories of survival. The four in our party ranged from 12 to 69. Randy, our guide, provided us with an adventurous day.
My wife and I did this trip yesterday and this has to rank among one of the most wonderful trips we have ever taken. We were a little bit perturbed at the length of this trip this being a road trip but the time just flew by. Our tour guide Kaloeb was just amazing, full of knowledge, full of information, ever ready to show us his knowledge of the area and surroundings. His passion showed through and he made this road trip a very enjoyable one. Highly recommended.
