Q. Are commercial tours available to the Prudhoe Bay oil field? What are the costs? -Lisa
A. Yes, you can go to Prudhoe on a tour. The costs vary from about $750.00 to $900.00 per person, and that would be from Fairbanks, Alaska. One of the tour companies told me that they take you up there, and bring you back, but that you will tour the facilities on a British Petroleum bus, because of security reasons. A lot of things have changed in our world since 9/11!
Here are a couple companies who do the Prudhoe tour. I’ll give you their websites and their toll free numbers, to help you plan.
Northern AlaskanTours/Arctic Circle Adventures
Alaskan Arctic Turtle Tours
You might want to ask them about the overnight part…whether the price includes your hotel or not. Some of them do, and some of them don’t. Let me know if I can help further. -BJ
