Many of our interior land trips in Alaska begin or end in Fairbanks, Alaska. Fairbanks is the largest city in the Interior region of Alaska and the second largest in the state.
There is an airport in Fairbanks, and our Interior Alaska Land trips usually fly in or out of Fairbanks or Anchorage.
Top 5 Things To Do in Fairbanks
Ride the Riverboat Discovery
I tried this excursion personally, and it was fun and exciting. You can find out more here. This is an idea of what to expect on this tour; Steamboat ride and Landing, Trail Breaker Kennel, Bush Pilot Demonstration, and a stop at Chena Village Living Museum.
Pan for Gold
I got to try this out, and it was fun. It is on my Dad’s dream list to Pan for Gold in Alaska. Take a look at what you get to do here.
Tour a Sled Dog Kennel
Experience behind the scenes in the lives of our puppies. Raising champion sled dogs starts with the puppies. Join us as we take a litter of pups for a walk in the forest, introducing them to new scents and obstacles.
I got to eat at the Alaska Salmon Bake, and it was a lot of fun. I enjoyed it.
