The outdoors has plenty more to offer visitors to Fairbanks, too. Active travelers can enjoy mountain biking, fishing, camping and rafting in the area.

The traditions of the region are also on full display, too, and adventurous visitors can even learn to travel in true Alaskan fashion during a full teamed dog sled experience. Both rides and hands-on driving experiences are available, and these dog sleds make for a uniquely local way – not to mention exhilarating – way to experience the local landscape. Annual sculpture contests, hands-on gold mining experiences and local hot springs are a few more ways visitors can tap into the local heritage of Fairbanks during their stay.
