Utqiagvik, the northernmost city in the United States, is a small, predominantly Iñupiat settlement on the shores of the Arctic Ocean. Roads outside town provide ready access to high Arctic breeding specialties like Steller's, Spectacled, and King Eiders, Yellow-billed Loon, Snowy Owl, all three jaegers, Snow Bunting, and, with luck, Buff-breasted Sandpiper. Volumes of Dunlin, Pectoral Sandpipers, and countless other nesting shorebirds put on a grand show, with hooting whistles and conspicuous flight displays. We'll visit the Iñupiat museum for an in-depth look at native culture, and have the chance to dip our toes in the Arctic Ocean.

We maintain a low participant-leader ratio for all of our overnight programs. As a result, our guests have an easier time finding and seeing wildlife, and leaders have more time for individualized interactions with each participant. These programs are open to everyone age 18 and older. Fees include all ground and boat transportation, interpretive materials, entrance fees, and lodging unless otherwise noted. Fees are based on double occupancy; optional single rooms available for a supplemental fee except where noted.

Instructions and Directions:

Single supplement is $700. Final payment is due April 8, 2020

Registration is required.
For your own security, DO NOT send credit card information via email.
