Cape Krusenstern National Monument is an archaeological site that is also an archetype of Arctic coastline that disperses at the Chukchi Sea. The monument is situated alongside the succession of other beach ridges. This also stands as solid evidence that the coastline was being used even before the period when events in the history were recorded in written.
Many birds migrate from different parts of the world to this monument throughout the year. Tourists can take flight from Anchorage/ Fairbanks and travel to Nome/ Kotzebue. The various commercial airlines provide charted and scheduled flights to certain park spots and also to the villages. One can take ride of the small planes that fly over the monument area and from where one can have the beauteous view of the ridges. These planes can be hired from Kotzebue.
In summers the visitors can also get access to motorized and non-motorized boats and in winters one can also drive the snowmachines and take ride of the dog sleds.
Summers are good for taking a walking trip to the monument, though airlines continue to provide their regular services. While hiking on the hills, one can also get the picturesque glimpses of the tundra landforms. One can even view the Chukchi Sea from the hills. Many enthusiasts prefer Kayaking but most of the time tourists abstain from it due to the chilly westerly winds that even blow in summers.
The monument is open for the visitors throughout the year. The climate of the place is characterized by snow, cold wind, sheer white ice, and extreme temperatures. The months from October to April are the chilliest. The place is notorious for witnessing freezing temperatures at any time of the year.
