Welcome to Gates of the Arctic National Park & Preserve


Not surprisingly, you don’t come here to stroll along interpretive boardwalks, or even follow something as rudimentary as a trail (there aren’t any). Tackled alone, this is a land for brave travelers with advanced outdoor experience, plenty of time on their hands and a flexible budget (read: it’s costly). Alternatively, you can sign up with one of a handful of agencies and go on a guided backcountry or flightseeing tour.
