Experience the remarkable Trans-Alaska Pipeline, an innovation that runs nearly 800 miles north to south from the Arctic Ocean to the Gulf of Alaska. You will travel down the Dalton Highway, that was made famous by the construction of the Pipeline.

In the rural community of Joy, Alaska, you will visit the historic Arctic Circle Trading Post. As your journey continues, you will enjoy stunning views of the mighty Yukon River. Marvel at the majestic beauty of the northland's most famous waterway and learn of the river's storied past.

Finally, you will cross the Arctic Circle in a very ceremonious fashion, and even receive an official Arctic Circle Adventure Certificate. You will get the opportunity to explore the amazing arctic tundra up close, and feel the veins of ice just beneath the surface.
