We will pick you up at the airport. We will pick you up at your hotel at 3.50 PM. After September 23 we will start the afternoon trips earlier, because of the light conditions. We will adapt the times to the weather and flight times for our guests.

Kaktovik Tours will use charter flights from Fairbanks when possible. In some rare occations we will have buy a few seats on Ravn. We also require that tour operators use charter flights. We try to help organize so that one group is flying in and one group is flying out on the same charter plane. We try to avoid that our polar bear viewers fill up the seats on the scheduled flights, and make in difficult for local people to get in and out for medical or other reasons. Please contact us for more info.
