What is the Arctic Circle? How long did it take to build the trans-Alaska oil pipeline? What is a pingo and where can I see one? Find out at this award-winning visitor center located in Coldfoot, Alaska. Explore the exhibits, walk the nearby nature trails, or take in an evening program to learn more about the special landscapes and history of the Far North.
The visitor center is a partnership between three federal agencies that manage the public lands along the Dalton Highway: the Bureau of Land Management (the Utility Corridor), the National Park Service (Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve), and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Yukon Flats, Kanuti and Arctic National Wildlife Refuges). The Alaska Geographic Association is our not-for-profit cooperating partner and operates the bookstore.
