History and Culture

Kobuk Valley is home to Onion Portage, one of the most complete records of Arctic culture, where the Inupiaq Eskimo have hunted caribou for the past 10,000 years.

Nature

In the Kobuk Valley, located entirely above the Arctic Circle, the boreal forest gives way to the tundra. Once called the most isolated wilderness ever seen, the valley is home to many animals, including grizzly bears, wolves, foxes, moose, Dall's sheep and the Western Arctic Caribou Herd, the largest herd in America.
