Kobuk Valley National Park

Kobuk Valley National Park is located in northwest Alaska, just west of Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. 400,000 caribou migrate across the park between breeding grounds year round. Bears, wolves, Dall sheep, and other mammals share the park with these caribou. Similar to Gates of the Arctic, there are no roads into or within the park so visitors must arrive by air taxi. Since the park is above the arctic circle, the sun does not set from June to July each year. Backpacking and float trips are both great ways to experience the vast wilderness if you’re able to make it to this beautiful part of the country.
