    I highly recommend. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable with much experience driving the Dalton highway, which was reassuring since it is so dangerous to drive. We took various stops along the way to the Arctic Circle and then stopped again afterwards for the northern lights. The visibility reading was low, but we still saw the lights since it was a clear night and they were beautiful and like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I also highly recommend looking out the window during the car ride back after stopping to see the lights because I saw more lights in the car after we stopped and the they were more impressive too. Plus, you have to added benefit of not freezing outside.

    Wild Alaska is a very good family owned travel agency. We had a little trouble before we departed from Fairbanks about the van, but the owner was very responsive and sent us another van quickly. From there, we learned that they have a professional technician to check every van everyday. Our guide for that day is Joe, who is a very patient and good driver. He drives very carefully and only passes other slow trucks when it is 100% safe. The Dalton Hwy had lots of holes on the road, but he tried to avoid each one while driving. He also stopped by some very good viewpoints during the trip and we took lots of good pictures. Also, we were very lucky to see the northern light on our way back. We were even able to see some red northern lights. Overall it was a very good trip and we had a very good time. :)

    Memorable trip for me and my son

    It was a long trip in the van but the stops were perfect. I rode shotgun with our guide Jeff. He was very knowledgeable and did a great job spotting wildlife and northern lights. The frozen arctic tundra was beautiful and a must see! On the way back most of the van was asleep but we kept getting great aurora shows. Prepare yourself for a long bus ride but this trip is not to be missed!!!
