There are so many things to do here in Fairbanks, both Summer and Winter! The best time of year to visit Alaska depending on what you’re hoping to see and do.
Fairbanks is a lovely place to visit in the winter, and frankly, it’s a place (and a season) that shouldn’t be missed by adventurers. Here are some fun activities in Winter listed.
1) See the Northern Lights, more than once if possible
2) Dog sledding + adventures
3) Chena Hot Springs + “The Ice Museum” Oh, and if you’re seriously into art sculpting, you should definitely plan a trip to see the Ice Art World Championships.
4) Visit Coldfoot or some other remote Alaskan outpost
The weather in Alaska, particularly during the winter, is about as unpredictable as it gets. Visiting one of the more remote villages in Alaska is a real treat, with Coldfoot, Wiseman, Bettles, Bethel and a host of others just a quick flight away.
5) Museum + Visitors Center
6) Visit Santa Clowns
Alaska’s beauty and summer daylight are so different from the lower latitudes.
You can’t go wrong visiting Alaska anytime between May 10 and September 15. The days are long, nature is in full bloom, and the air is alive with energy. Most tours operate mid-May to mid-September, with the exception of those into Denali (mid-June to end of August). Peak season is mid-June to mid-August.
