Taking a three- to four-hour summer tour (mid May to mid-September) with Tundra Tours, run out of the Top of the World Hotel, is one of the better ways to piece together Utqiaġvik's essential sights and spot wildlife. Trips includes a tundra walk to Iñupiat sod huts and a look around the Iñupiat Heritage Center.

At other times of the year, Tundra Tours offers a condensed, two-hour version of the above for $75, on weekdays only.
