Hi: We are traveling with my grandson age 10 who have a dream of seeing the artic ocean. When I was in Barrow about 15 years ago, I was impressed with the amount of ice that formed the Artic ocean; today, as I see in photos grand part has disappeared, so we want to take our grandson before it is all gone. He love Alaska's wilderness and he expressed the best when he said "Alaska has no fences, is all open and I love it;" we took him to Denali two years ago and stay in a campground cabin. Is there such thing in Barrow? We want to take him on a wilderness tour. Could you suggest one? Also we want some inexpensive accommodations. Any suggestions? Thank you gloria

We have made tentative reservations with Alaska Airlines tours to take a day trip from Fairbanks to Barrow with our kids (13 and 11) at the end of a cruise/land tour in August. A lot of money but sounds like a once in a lifetime experience. But, one major question: we'll bring warm clothes but do we need snow boots? Any suggestions before we take this trip?
On a tour of Alaska this summer and want to got to Northernmost point. I cannot fly there....I know there's a "highway" that goes to Prudhoe Bay from Fairbanks but how do I go after that? Do they have "tundra buggies?" Is there a local Indian community there that can help get us there?
A 29 year old single female and a 22 year old single female both need a place to stay for 2-3 weeks in Barrow, Alaska. Unfortunately we could not find any information on hostels in Barrow. Dates: Mid-December 2005 to early January, 2006 We are both hard working women who would trade labor for housing. Perferred to stay together but willing to seperate. Question: Is there any body in Barrow or the outskirts willing to trade? Do not need fancy. We can do anything from cleaning to building and we will learn. Thank you. Your friendly travelers, Courtney and Melissa
