I was in Barrow for work and spent about a week at TOWH--it's a beautiful new building with a very helpful staff. They went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable, even recommending a reasonably-priced tour company rather than their own tours. The...More

We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and your meals at Niġġivikput, the hotel’s restaurant. Our tour is seasonal and only offered in the summer so it was great that you were able to go out with a local...More

The fall is the best time to come witness the whaling and we are so glad you came and experienced this event. The reference to the close proximity of the heritage center, Barrow’s friendliness and that a local guide was available even during the off-season...More
