Cape Krusenstern National Monument lies within a remote area of northwest Alaska and is bordered by the Arctic Ocean and Chukchi Sea.
Visitors generally access the monument via the regional hub in Kotzebue. Commercial airlines provide daily service from Fairbanks or Anchorage, to Kotzebue. Chartered flights with licensed air taxi services, booked in advance, can take backcountry travelers to remote destinations within the monument.
Summer access may include motorized/non-motorized watercraft, aircraft, or by foot. (Note: traveling by foot in the summer would be an arduous, roundabout journey.) Options for winter access include snowmobile, aircraft, or foot.
