General Information

Description - As Alaska’s visitors cross the Arctic Circle, legend has it that many pilots give the plane a slight “bump” letting passengers know they’ve crossed the legendary circle.

Attractions - Alaska’s Arctic is home to the Inupiat Eskimos, many who still live a subsistence lifestyle and still preserve their history verbally from generation to generation. The Far North is filled with a rich history and natural wonders, from the gold rush days of yore to the Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve.

Recreation - Unique recreation opportunities present themselves in Alaska's wild lands. Wildlife viewing always presents exciting adventure for visitors to this region. Water-oriented activities abound as do hunting, fishing, and photography. Climbing is popular in the mountains of the region.

Climate - The climate in Alaska varies with terrain and region. The south-central region of the state is most temperate because it is protected from cold northern winds by the Alaska Range. The large bodies of water that lies closely to this area create a stabilizing factor for the air temperature. Southeast Alaska is wet. An average of 80 inches of rain comes to this region directly from the Gulf of Alaska.

Location - The far north of Alaska emcompasses vast stretches of tundra and the lands along the Beaufort, Chukchi and Bering Seas.
