Recreational and Educational Guides: 2013

[This list was updated April 29, 2013.]

Below is a list of commercial recreational and educational guides who are either authorized to operate within Arctic National Wildlife Refuge or who are in the process of seeking authorization for 2013. To be authorized, the company must have a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service special use permit for commercial operations in the Refuge.

It is illegal to provide commercial services within the Refuge without permitted authorization. We cannot predict which businesses will pursue--or be granted--authorization into the future. It is the visitor's responsibility to confirm the validity of guides.

This information is offered as a public service. All the guides listed are private businesses not affiliated with the U.S. government. This list does not constitute an endorsement by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, nor does it guarantee continued authorization. We post contact information as it has been provided to us, and update the list periodically.
