Fairbanks is a town in Interior Alaska, 1488 miles from the start of the Alaska Highway in Dawson Creek, BC. It is the second-largest city in Alaska and, being a junction of several major highways, will be a likely stop of most visitors to the state. Pioneer Park is definitely something that all tourists should visit while staying in Fairbanks. The Trans-Alaska Pipeline, Riverboat Discovery tour, and El Dorado Gold Mine are all popular sights. Fairbanks is centrally located and a jumping off point for many of the adventure activities in the interior - including drives to the north coast.
Watch your kids bubble over with childhood delight as you arrive in the frozen town of North Pole to catch a glimpse of Santa Claus as he tends to his reindeer in the misty Alaskan morning.

As your train whisks you deep into the Alaskan wilderness, keep your camera at the ready to capture brown bears playing on river sand banks, migrating caribou on their annual pilgrimage, and humpback whales breeching in glacial waters.
As shifting arcs of green, pink, red, yellow, blue and even violet dance in the sky over the mysterious magnetic north pole, sit back and ponder the majesty of this planet we call home from your vantage point in the pristine Alaskan wilderness.

As you follow a vast stretch of highway that leads through pristine forest and into the frozen mountains on the horizon, you’ll feel the heady sense of freedom that only a self-drive tour can offer.
