Alaska Road Trips from Fairbanks
Fairbanks is the perfect jumping off point for a journey into Alaska’s interior and Arctic Region. We have compiled various car routes from Fairbanks to help plan your holiday in Alaska. Our driving tours range from 4 to 7 days and are an ideal extension to your rail journey, Alaska Ferry Trip or Inside Passage cruise. Visitors have the choice to drop off the rental car in Anchorage, Whittier, Skagway, Haines or Juneau. Founded by a gold prospector in 1901, Fairbanks, like many other towns in Alaska, struggled until the construction of the trans-Alaska pipeline in the mid 1970s. Now this eclectic mix of log cabins, modern office buildings and a university campus is recognised as Alaska’s gateway to the Arctic. Several tours are available from Fairbanks - including trips to the Arctic Circle, the native village Fort Yukon or Chena Hot Springs Resort. Some of the popular activities are the Gold Dredge No. 8 tour or the Riverboat Discovery Cruise on the Nenana River.
