Arctic Alaska Photo Tour – Autumn
Explore the remote arctic of Alaska during the most spectacular time of year when fall colors blanket the tundra and wildlife is busy preparing for winter. Spend nights photographing the magical aurora borealis and days immersed in the Arctic autumn. After a night in Alaska’s Golden Heart City Fairbanks, get off the beaten path, without crowds, as you travel north of the Arctic Circle in the Brooks Range to the historic gold mining community of Wiseman. Spend days searching for iconic arctic animals such as the gray wolf, moose, caribou, and grizzly and brown bears, while you marvel at the aurora borealis by night. Travel north on the famous Dalton Highway over the highest road pass in Alaska, to the spectacular arctic coastal plain, while looking for muskoxen, owls, falcons and other wildlife on the open tundra. Spend a night in a Prudhoe Bay oilfield hotel, before flying to an Iñupiaq village to observe and photograph the Arctic’s top predator, the polar bear. Three days of boat and land excursions give you plenty of time to watch the bears in their environment, on the Arctic Ocean coast.
Return to Prudhoe Bay and travel south, returning to Wiseman for two more days of exploration and photography on the south side of the Brooks Range by day and two more nights to watch for the northern lights. Take home unforgettable memories and photographs under the expert guidance of longtime Alaska resident, naturalist, and professional photographer Ron Niebrugge.
