What Visitors Say
“The view while flying takes you over some one of a kind spectacular scenery. In Tuk we had a local knowledgable guide who lives at the “beach”. You can get a certificate for dipping your toes in the ocean or be like me and take it all off to frolic in the Arctic Ocean. I would highly recommend a tour to Tuk if you make it this far. The guys that run this company are great.”
