Brooks Range Flight-Seeing

Alaska is big, real big, and our part of Alaska does not have any roads, so unless you have the entire summer to spend walking we recommend flight seeing. There is nothing quite like the throaty hum of an Alaskan Bush plane as it takes you across the wilderness at about 100 miles an hour. We offer flight-seeing trips into vast wilderness to have a picnic lunch with some of the local wildlife on a secluded lake or river of your choice.

Each tour includes a private floatplane and pilot to take you and your guide on a day trip to float a river, flight see through the mountains, lunch in the midst of migrating caribou, or spend the day fishing, then return to Iniakuk Lake Wilderness Lodge or the Gates of the Arctic Wilderness Cabins in time for dinner.

A few minutes north of Iniakuk Lake Wilderness Lodge is Gates of the Arctic National Park. It is 8.2 million acres, all north of the Arctic Circle and littered with mountain ranges. To the west, en-route to the Bering Sea, is Kobuk National Park, 1.75 million acres of designated lands home to the infamous Kobuk Sand Dunes. Native legends tell of giants who fought in the area, tearing the tundra open and exposing the sands beneath. To the east is more of the Brooks Range and the peaks, Frigid Crags and Boreal Mountain, that make up the “Gates of the Arctic.”

If you are interested in adding the Kobuk and Gates of the Arctic to your National Parks Passport stamps we can easily arrange an itinerary to both locations during your stay.
