Fairbanks is in a wilderness, 500 kilometres north of Anchorage, and 300 kilometres south of the Arctic Circle. As gateway to Denali National Park, it is often used as an overnight stop en-route to the Arctic wilderness beyond.

Its museums house interesting exhibits illustrating Alaska’s cultural and natural history and you can shop for native Athabascan and Eskimo crafts.

In summer, daylight lasts forever, and in winter you can dog-sled, watch the spectacular Aurora Borealis, and see life-sized ice sculptures.
