On the deck of your ship, pay close attention… in fact, on the approach to Point Barrow, it is very common to observe grey whales, much to the delight of lovers of marine life. After an outing in a Zodiac® dinghy, here you are in Barrow. With some 5,000 inhabitants, this commune curled in the heart of herbaceous tundra is the most northern town in Alaska. Inhabited partly by Inupiats, it is home to the ruins of old sod houses that you will be able to explore after a short hike. During your stopover, don’t miss the visit to the local museum and art workshop displaying painted or engraved whalebones. A great opportunity to find out more about this people’s culture and customs.
