Take The Arctic Circle Drive Adventure For Breathtaking Views Only In Alaska

Although Alaska is far to the north, only a part of it is actually in the Arctic. Head North from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle on Northern Alaska Tour Company’s Arctic Circle What distinguishes the Arctic from the Northern Temperate Zone, the subarctic area below, is that the sun stays above the horizon for 24 continuous hours at least once a year. Consequently, the sun is below the horizon for a continuous 24 hours on the northern winter solstice.

The far north has a color palette all its own and is strikingly beautiful in a very unique way. As you travel north, there are less trees and more tundra. The temperatures drop and the sun becomes more indirect, causing bright light with little heat. Travel north with the Northern Alaska Tour Company and see a part of the world that most people will only see in their dreams.

This is a perfect tour to take in the fall when the colors are at their most vibrant. Check out this and other places to see fall foliage here.
