  • What should I bring on the tour?

    Guests should bring sun protection and sunglasses, as the tundra can be bright! Also bring a camera as there are many photo opportunities available. Dress in layers for your own comfort level.
  • What type of wildlife might we see?

    Arctic wildlife is abundant in the local area, but can be elusive! During our tours, be on the lookout for Arctic fowl and small mammals, as well as snowy owl, Arctic foxes and larger creatures such as caribou and even polar bears!
  • Is there a shuttle available?
    We have a complimentary shuttle to/from the airport. We do monitor flights for any delays or cancellations as well.
  • Will we go to the end of Point Barrow?
    The tour will take you as far as the road will allow. Our vehicles are not equipped for beach access, which is what you need to reach the end of the Point.
  • Will I be able to see the Northern Lights?
    Northern Lights are not visible during the summer months as we have 24 hour daylight.
  • Does the hotel offer any car rentals or ATV rentals?
    Top of the World Hotel does not offer any car or ATV rentals. There is one car rental company in town. Contact UIC Car Rental for more information.
