arctic travel resources
We know different trips and different itineraries mean different transportation needs. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to get up to Coldfoot and back. Here's a quick guide to companies that transport to and from Coldfoot so you can find the perfect match for your needs.
Northern Alaska Tour Company runs tours that visit us all year round. In the summer and winter they run 3-5 hour, full-day, and multi-day trips.
Arctic Outfitters rents cars for trips up the Dalton Highway, and can make reservations with us. They rent cars with included CB radios specifically for use on the Dalton, making them the perfect choice for those who want to traverse the Dalton on their own terms.
The Dalton Highway Express is a great way to visit us for a couple of days during the summer. They come up a few days a week, and head back the following day. This service is great for hikers, or and helpful for shuttling supplies up North. If you’re interested, please make reservations in advance.
If you're heading to the end of the highway, Deadhorse Camp is the first place to stay and eat at the service community of Deadhorse. In the summer, Deadhorse Camp operates the Arctic Ocean Shuttle service. The Arctic Ocean Shuttle allows guests to take a security guard operated shuttle through the oilfields to the coast and requires an advance reservation.
Yukon River Camp is a restaurant, lodge, and fuel stop a few hours south of us. In addition to a variety of amenities, you also have access to a gorgeous view of Alaska's longest river.
