These all-inclusive tours include three nights lodging Bettles for Aurora Viewing, a day tour to Kaktovik to see the polar bears including lunch at the quirky Waldo Arms hotel, round trip air transportation from Fairbanks to Bettles, all meals, Eric’s infamous village tour and use of cold weather gear.
