Coldfoot Tours

There are few communities in Artic Alaska accessible by road and Coldfoot is one of the unique stopping points for those travelling down the Dalton Highway. Rich in fishing opportunities and at the helm of untouched wilderness, Coldfoot is the perfect base camp for backcountry exploring through the Brooks Mountain Range and Atigun Pass and renowned for stunning displays of the Northern Lights phenomenon.

Originating as a mining camp, Coldfoot was aptly renamed in 1900 after the first settlers got "cold feet" and turned around upon their arrival. Nearby the town, visitors can explore the Arctic's deep cultural and natural history by hiking into the Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve or the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
