Things to do around Fairbanks

There are plenty of things to do and see around Fairbanks, Interior Alaska, and our big state.

Some things are seasonal or only certain times of the year. You won’t be doing dog mushing in summer, for example. Aurora viewing won’t happen either from mid-April – mid August. World class ice art competition starts in late February into late March.

And some links to find other things to do, places to stay, etc.

If you have more time to explore further south:

  • Take a flightsee over Denali (Mt. McKinley) – in good weather you can land on the Ruth Glacier at 14,000 feet. There are several companies out of Talkeetna.
  • Take a boat trip out of Seward a few hours south of Anchorage to Kenai Fjords National Park. Marine wildlife and glaciers (before they melt) abound.
