Visit This Little Known Town For A True Alaskan Adventure

Kotzebue, or “Kotz” as it is affectionately shortened, would be a village compared to the rest of the world, but is by far the largest community in the Northwest Arctic Borough at around 3200 people. Summers are cool, but the midnight sun shines brightly for most of June and July as the town sits just above the Arctic Circle. Winters are long, cold, and dark with incredible aurora shows and the stark beauty of winter in the Arctic.
