Flying out of Kotzebue we have access to six different national parks and preserves, all of which offer their own unique adventure. We will tailor the trip to your liking, ranging from a day trip, where we can land in several of the different parks, to dropping you off for a scenic camping or hiking trip. The areas surrounding Kotzebue are among the most natural and untamed that Alaska has to offer.
Kotzebue is one of the few places to offer the true Alaskan experience of viewing a variety of wildlife species in their natural habitat. On a single flight it is possible to see Dall sheep, moose, musk ox, black bears, grizzly bears, and possibly the elusive timber wolf.
For about a two week period towards the end of June through the first week of July you can view the aggregation of the Western Arctic Caribou Herd with numbers reaching up to 400,000 give or take a few thousand. Viewing this amazing natural wonder is nothing short of remarkable. It will remain infinitely lucid in your mind.
