Experience true North

ARCTIC

WINTER

ADVENTURE

We provide you some of the most authentic and remote dog sledding adventures available in Alaska. Not only will you be in untouched, remote tundra under the Aurora, but you will visit the fly-in only village of Evansville. Populated by Athabascans and Inupiat Eskimos. This unique trip of a lifetime is guided by highly skilled mushers who have many years of experience in mushing and wilderness survival. We will take you to some of the most remote areas and trails in The Great North.

THE

See the Unseen

We purposefully built the Arctic Winter Adventures basecamp in the very best location for viewing the Northern Lights; situated on a hill graced with untouched northern sky. We are located just a short 18-mile drive north (on paved roads) from the city lights of Fairbanks.

We push on even further into the Brooks Range to Crevice creek. Where a relaxing 20 miles along the John River valley is ahead of us. As you continue to bond with your team and encourage the their performance you will surely enjoy this ancient way of travel. Crevice Creek used to be America's most Northern farm but in the winter it is abandoned and left to grow wild. It is also an ideal location to watch the Northern Lights.

Alas we get to enjoy the best of Alaska. We are in the Big Country, desolate country. We arrive at the Allen River, and Sewards Pass. A place that sees no humans all year long except for our tours in March and April. The Allen River snakes itself through gorges and valleys where we often see tracks of Wolves, Moose and Lynx. After 17 miles of running on this beautiful frozen river, we'll climb Seward Pass and on to its descent to Wild Lake, our 3rd overnight.

Now that you are a part of the pack we can push through our final miles back to Bettles. We will follow the Wild River surrounded by the rugged peaks of the southern Brooks Range. By now you will see how incredible these tenacious four-legged athletes are and how lost we would be out here without them. They run without hesitation, without a doubt, without troubles. These dogs, this way of travel is a means of navigating the tundra environment. It is an integral part of the history of this northern land and how humans have survived here.  Let us show you the Great Northern way.

FAQs

What should I expect?

Expect a once in a lifetime experience that will be a highlight of your adventures. This is an outdoor adventure in a beautiful and desolate wonderland like no other, it is not a walk on the beach. If you are comfortable backpacking, hiking, and playing in the snow, then this is an adventure for you.

Will I see the Northern Lights?

This area is the best area to see the Northern Lights. It takes the right conditions (solar winds and weather) though. And, you need to stay up late – on past trips, our guests have stayed up in shifts… and seen the Northern Lights every night.

Where do I sleep?

You will stay in cabins along the trail. These are rustic cabins, a place to get out of the cold. They have wood stoves and a place to sleep. They do not have toilets, showers or internet. They do have outhouses though. AWA provides sleeping bags.

Will it be cold?

You will be north of the Arctic Circle, so it will be cold. However, you will be moving on the sled so with proper clothing you will not be miserably cold and may get too warm at times. Each night is spent in a cabin with a wood stove, so nights are comfortable assuming you add some wood to the fire as needed.

What will we eat?

AWA provides a hot breakfast and dinner with lots of carbs and protein. A simple sandwich lunch and snacks will be packed on your sled and consumed on the trail each day. You are welcome to bring specific snacks if you’d like. Be sure to let AWA know if you have any food restrictions.

How physically fit do I need to be?

You do not need to be a Navy Seal to enjoy the trip, but reasonable fitness is needed. If you have reasonable balance, moderate stamina and moderate endurance. You also need to be comfortable with crashing into the snow, like skiing or snowboarding, things happen and gravity wins sometimes.
