Polar Bear One Day Tour

One-day expeditions from Fairbanks to Kaktovik by small plane during the fall whaling season when polar bears wander off the arctic ice and congregate in one area making an expedition/viewing possible. 

Viewing polar bears in the wild is one of the most unique experiences in the world. Take a walk on the wild side and see polar bears in their natural habitat.  Safely view and photograph polar bears in a rare and special wildlife encounter.  Visit the Inupiat Eskimo village of Kaktovik, located along the coast of the Arctic Ocean on Barter Island.  Kaktovik is the only village within the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
