My wife and I went to Alaska on a quest - to visit all eight National Parks. Kobuk was our seventh and it is not easy to get to. It is accessible first only by air from a few towns surrounding the park. You can then either take a boat up the Kobuk river or continue to use air transport.... More

Kotzebue is an amazing city, perched on a spit of land at the end of the world. And when you come to Kotzebue, hopefully you have an opportunity to get out and enjoy the outer reaches of northwest Alaska. My father and I travelled up the Noatak River with some friends and spent a few beautiful days and nights fishing.... More

It was a very memorable experience in my life, living in Kotzebue. I really enjoyed getting to know the Alaska Native culture.

If you've ever wanted to travel north of the Arctic Circle you should really plan a trip to Kotzebue, AK - it is absolutely beautiful! This small Alaskan village is relaxing, the views of the ocean are breathtaking and the many quick walks you take - around the spit and into the Tundra - are worth the mud you may... More

I took a flight-see by Golden Eagle in Kotzebue, and it's an amazing experience. It's the least visited National Park, and the natural and untouched beauty will take your breath away. The plane will land at the magnificent sand dunes, a real treat!

From Kotzebue, we chartered a flight that took us to Gates of the Arctic National Park, Noatak National Preserve and Kobuk Valley National Park. We landed in each of the parks and got out of the small plane to take in the scenery on foot as well as from the air. This was truly the highlight of our Alaska vacation.... More
