Fairbanks' strategic Interior location means venturing no further than a few minutes from town for a great-outdoors-experience. Surrounded by wilderness, you'll find nearby areas perfect for hiking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, canoeing, kayaking, snowmobiling, dog mushing, skiing, camping, fishing, hunting, and backpacking. We have a breadth and variety of options that can satisfy virtually any Alaska wilderness-seeker.
With wilderness comes wildlife & one of Alaska's greatest treasures. Remember your binoculars to get close-up views of geese, ducks, cranes and swans at Creamer's Field, a migratory bird refuge less than five minutes from downtown. Binoculars are also a good tip for Denali National Park and Preserve and other wilderness areas to bring into view moose, caribou, Dall sheep and grizzly bear. Find boundless outdoor adventure for the thrill-seeker or the wondering observer year-round both in and near Fairbanks.
