Northern Alaska Tour Company is an Alaskan-owned tour operator based in Fairbanks, Alaska. The Company was founded in 1986 to provide unparalleled travel and touring experiences in Alaska's Arctic for guests while maintaining the highest standards of safety and commitment to traditional culture and the environment.
Our cooperative, grassroots tour programs strengthen the local economies in the communities and regions we visit and help preserve the wisdom of knowledgeable locals by recording and incorporating their knowledge into tour programs.
As our traveling guests learn of and experience firsthand the delicate, wondrous environment of Alaska's Arctic, they are able to appreciate and help protect it. When carried forth conscientiously, travel and touring can serve to protect the natural environment and preserve traditional culture where it may otherwise be destroyed.
In sharing our culture and environment with visitors, we as hosts, along with our guests are deeply enriched by the experience... which is really what travel and touring is all about.
Northern Alaska Tour Company guides are highly-trained Alaskans who are able to share their unique understanding of Alaska with you based on their personal experiences. We are confident that you will find the level of service provided by your guide to be as high or higher than you have ever before experienced.
Northern Alaska Tour Company strives to provide a personalized travel experience. Touring is done in small groups utilizing a 25-passenger tour coach. A 10-passenger van is used for smaller groups, Arctic Ocean Adventures, Arctic Circle Winter Drive, Arctic Circle Aurora Adventure, and special circumstances. A full-time mechanic subjects each vehicle to a detailed inspection prior to each departure as well as upon its return. Each guide assists in this maintenance program by completing a vehicle inspection before and after tour noting any changes in vehicle operation. This information is then used by the mechanic to inspect even the smallest change in vehicle operation to insure safety and accurate operation. Tour vehicles are equipped with CB Radios, satellite telephones, road safety kit, and two spare tires.
