During summer time, you can visit ethnic native villages located in the far North. Locals welcome tourists only in this period. It’s a unique experience since visitors will get a chance to explore a whole new way of life there. Meet hospitable Athabaskan and Nunamiut people who will spend a day with you and share traditional meals and show a personal perspective of village life. If you want to investigate some traditions and feel Native American culture as deep as possible, visiting these settlements is an excellent idea. Arctic Village and villages of Anaktuvuk Pass and Fort Yukon are perfect destinations for this.
