Getting Here and Around

In the past, individual travelers rarely turned up in Deadhorse and Prudhoe Bay. But now that the Dalton Highway has been opened as far north as Deadhorse, adventurous independent travelers are finding their way here. Still, rather than driving solo on a couple of hundred miles of gravel road filled with semis going faster than you knew semis could go, most people traveling to Deadhorse come on a tour with one of Alaska's airlines or bus-tour operators. A guided tour is recommended to really explore the area, and is necessary to cross the oil fields to get to the Arctic Ocean. You'll find no restaurants around the oil fields, though if you have official business, meals can sometimes be arranged through the Prudhoe Bay Hotel.
