The largest city in Alaska’s Interior region and the second largest in the state, Fairbanks is a modern city surrounded by expansive wilderness. Its location at the heart of the state, the character of its residents and the discovery of gold have earned Fairbanks the nickname of the “Golden Heart City.” Located 188 miles south of the Arctic Circle, Fairbanks is known for chilly winters lit by the dancing lights of the aurora borealis and long summer days that offer up to 21 hours of sunlight.
The city is a two-hour drive from the 6 million acres of Denali National Park and Preserve, home to the majestic Mount McKinley, North America’s tallest peak. Book a tour through the seasonal tour desk at the Westmark Fairbanks Hotel and venture into the park, where wildlife such as moose, wolves, caribou, Dall sheep and bears roam the tundra surrounding the breathtaking, snow-capped peak.
If you have traveled to Alaska searching for the brilliant northern lights, Fairbanks is the ultimate destination. Prime viewing season is September through March. The Geophysical Institute located at the University of Alaska Fairbanks provides a daily forecast for when the lights will be active.
