Welcome to Deadhorse


No right-minded traveler would come here if it wasn’t the end point of a truly epic journey. That said, a night in the military-camp-like confines of the Prudhoe Bay Hotel, with its industrial carpets and nail-biting, calendar-checking oil workers, makes for the conclusion of an exhausting road trip you probably won’t forget in a hurry.
