Western Arctic National Parklands

Bering Land Bridge National PreserveKobuk Valley National ParkCape Krusenstern National Monument, and Noatak National Preserve encompass some 12 million acres of arctic and subarctic wildlands in Northwest Alaska. Although covered by snow and ice for most of the year, short but intense summers reveal vast expanses of colorful tundra, abundant wildlife, wild rivers, massive lava flows, thermal hot springs, the Great Kobuk Sand Dunes, and a fossil and archeological record of migration between Asia and North America. The Inupiat people continue to live in harmony with the land, following traditional hunting, fishing and gathering activities.
