Guides That Go the Distance
Caribou hunting in Alaska is an amazing experience. As the fall colors paint a wild scene in one of the last places in America that can truly be called “Frontier,” so do the last of the great caribou herds make their annual migration. The place is the Brooks Range, and the western Arctic herd of trophy caribou is the game. Arctic North Guides offers guided caribou hunts on this plateau stage, where the players are treated to the finest, and most consistent, caribou hunts available anywhere.
While these lands are often called “barren,” nothing could be further from the truth. The North Slope of Alaska is alive with flora and fauna in almost infinite variety. Before the first of the snows fall, the animals that call this place their home in the summer move south in great migrations, whether borne of land, air, or sea. The caribou seek these lands for protection, escape, and food. While the word “pristine” is often used in Alaska, nowhere is it truer than in the rugged expanse of the Arctic.
The remoteness of Alaska North Slope in the Arctic cannot be overstated, nor can its unspoiled beauty. Hunts are exceptional on the North Slope due to its remote and untouched location. The caribou herd where our hunting trips take place number around 550,000. This is last of the ritual big game migrations on the continent, and they conjure up images within the mind of a time when the west was truly wild.
Lack of pressure makes our hunts unique, in that few ever lay eyes on this wild and unending landscape. With over 30 years guiding and outfitting hunts in the Arctic, our Alaska caribou hunting guides are proud to boast that 99 percent of our hunters have been successful at filling their tags with their own trophy big game animals.

Your Alaska Caribou Hunting Trip
The secret to our success is Location! Location! Location! Our area is wide and expansive as we operate three separate camps in addition to our main lodge. We can accommodate four caribou hunters at the main lodge while others fly out to one of our remote camps.
We track the caribou herds by air daily to keep apprised of their location and direction. This information is vital to keep our hunters locked in on all of the action and ensure their individual success. Because this is the largest and most consistent of all the herds, they always arrive like clockwork on August First or Second. After crossing the Colville River, the herd moves south through numerous mountain passes in one of the most incredible displays one can set their eyes on in this modern world. It is important to remain mobile during a hunt so as to intercept the herd as it moves. With 30 years experience in the Brooks Range, no one is better equipped to guide you on a caribou hunt of a lifetime, where success is virtually guaranteed with our proven Alaska caribou hunting guides.
