“Ice Road Truckers” Made Coldfoot Camp Famous, And You Can Stay There Too
If you’re looking for a truly Alaskan adventure, Coldfoot Camp, located in the Arctic Circle, is the perfect place to visit. Made famous by the show “Ice Road Truckers,” this truck stop, cafe, and overnight accommodations are absolutely out of this world. And visiting in the wintertime is an adventure all on its own.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
If you’ve ever seen the show “Ice Road Truckers,” you know these mammoth vehicles make their way up the Dalton Highway on their way to the North Slope.
Once you pass through into the Arctic Circle, you’ll come across a very small town called Coldfoot. Coldfoot Camp is the town’s main attraction, and it’s a truck stop, cafe, and camp available to visit.
A winter trip into the Arctic Circle is a bucket list item for many people.
You’ll experience firsthand incredibly low temperatures, crystal clear skies with the northern lights dancing overhead, and even dog sled rides through the stunning landscape that surrounds you. And Coldfoot Camp is a welcome beacon in the darkness, filled with tasty food and warm accommodations.
The Trucker’s Cafe is legendary and serves all types of food.
It’s open all year long, and in the winter, it’s open from 5:00 am - 12:00 am daily. You’ll have a full restaurant menu to order from, and the items change seasonally.
In the summertime, you’ll find a full buffet to choose from.
Enjoy a breakfast buffet from 5:00 am - 9:00 am daily or a dinner buffet from 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Breakfast buffets in the summertime are $14.95 per person, and dinner buffet is $21.95 per person.
The inn is made up of trailers that used to house oil pipeline workers.
The trailers have been refurbished and brought up to date, but they’re still rustic. Each room has two twin beds and a private bathroom with a shower, and they’re squeaky clean, and cozy to boot.
A night at this epic truck stop starts at $219.00 per night and goes up from there depending on the season.
High season rates are November, December, and March. This is the busy season due to the ice truckers making their way to Prudhoe Bay.
This is an Alaskan adventure you’ll never forget.
Especially in the wintertime, under the aurora borealis, and driving through incredibly cold temperatures. It doesn’t get more “Last Frontier” than this!
