Where the unparalleled meets the unexpected…
The Setting - Fairbanks, AK
Fairbanks emanates a quality of light, energy and warmth found nowhere else on Earth. The northern lights will change you, while the summer midnight sun charms you. Greet the Arctic wilderness on your doorstep or be amazed by your magnificent neighbor, Denali. Be transported into the gold rush past or engage in the art and culture of the vibrant and diverse city. Make your journey into the heart of the Last Frontier and experience the light, energy and warmth found only in Fairbanks, Alaska.
With the summer sun shining nearly 24 hours a day, we are simply bursting with energy. Strike it rich panning for gold, float the Chena River, mingle with reindeer and musk oxen, cool off in an ice museum, take a refreshing hike, or be inspired by brilliant art galleries, museums, and historic sites. Late August to April you have a great chance to see the shimmering light of the aurora borealis. A host of other fascinating activities and events are unveiled during the winter. Once a gold rush boomtown, Fairbanks is now Alaska's second largest metropolis known as the "Golden Heart City,” a testimony to the warmth of the people. The Alaska Highway, trans-Alaska oil pipeline, military bases, mining and the University of Alaska are all integral to Fairbanks' past and future. The city population hovers around 32,000, but nearly 98,000 live in the Fairbanks North Star Borough-an area the size of New Jersey. Visitors find Fairbanks, the Last Frontier, inviting, invigorating and awe-inspiring.
