Fairbanks: Alaska's 2nd-largest city is a trade and transportation centre for the Interior and Far North regions. From mid-May through to July, visitors can enjoy more than 20 hours of sunlight a day. Attractions range from the Alaskaland Theme Park to the University of Alaska-Fairbanks Museum.
A fly-in excursion to Fort Yukon, located on the Arctic Circle on the Yukon River, gives tourists a vivid picture of life in Alaska's largest Athabascan village. Throughout the winter, Fairbanks hosts world-class sled-dog races, ice-sculpting competitions and skiing events.
