Fairbanks Tours and Attractions

 


 

 

The “Golden Heart” city of Fairbanks offers a nice selection of tours and activities. Certainly the most popular is a cruise aboard the Riverboat Discovery on the Chena River. The town also has an excellent museum at the University, and a number of tours exploring Fairbanks’ gold mining history. A city tour or visit to “Alaska Land” is always a great choice. With its northern location, Fairbanks is a great starting point for tours across the Arctic Circle and to the Prudhoe Bay oil fields. See more information on our Fairbanks Tours page.
