Barrow & Far North Region
Located between two unforgiving settings, the Arctic Ocean to the north and the Brooks Range mountains to the south, Alaska’s North Slope is located in Alaska's Far North Region and is home to big polar bears and whales, even bigger oil fields and business, thousands of miles of barren tundra atop permafrost and a scattering of Alaska Native communities that balance subsistence living and modern American life.
When to visit
On the North Slope, the sun doesn’t set for around 80 days in the summer and doesn’t rise for nearly 70 days in the winter. It is so cold that the temperature stays below freezing for months.
