Arctic Adventure

Motorcycle driving down dirt road.

Cast away your thoughts of the Arctic Circle being a barren, icy world! If you choose to drive the Dalton Highway up to the Arctic Ocean your vision will be filled with green rolling hills, lush verdant valleys, and the wide expanse of the Arctic tundra. While you can drive the majority of this mostly unpaved road with your own vehicle, do be aware that the last seven miles are owned by the oil company and you will need to take their tour to actually dip your toes into the icy Arctic Ocean.
