Alaska is one of the most breathtaking places in the world. Words cannot express the majestic nature and once in a lifetime experiences all around.
Fairbanks is a gateway to Alaska’s vast Interior and expansive Arctic. The White Mountains National Recreation Area is just north of town, with a wild river and extensive trail system. Head north to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and the Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. Access the North Slope or the Arctic Circle. Visit Barrow, Fort Yukon, Anaktuvuk Pass, Galena, Coldfoot, Beaver, Ruby, Bettles and the Yukon River. Head south to Denali by a 4-hour leisurely train ride or short 2-hour drive. Auto rentals, air and ground transportation, guided eco-tours, fishing and boat charters and wildlife tours can be arranged through professional outfitters (ask us for recommendations). Make Fairbanks your base camp as you explore rural villages, see caribou migrations and polar bear, hike in rugged mountains, float mighty rivers and fly-fish remote streams.
