Private land and cabins are scattered throughout Alaskan parks and refuges. Though travel may be through remote country, you may encounter private property.
- Cabins, caches, traplines and fishnets should be respected and not disturbed.
- Check with the land manager of the area you are visiting for land status.
- You may also encounter prehistoric or historic sites. These sites usually hold great significance for the local Native people. Respect their heritage and leave the site undisturbed.
- During your trip in the Arctic, you will most likely visit rural communities. Invasion of community privacy is a concern of many rural residents. Be sensitive to local lifestyle activities. Ask before photographing.
