Many people ask us what is a good time to come to Fairbanks to take advantage of winter activities. Our best resource to answer that would be the Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau (FCVB) website for both a winter and summer guide at http://www.explorefairbanks.com/
As a suggestion though, we recommend coming in March for the great variety of things available to do at that time of year. Plus… it’s not so cold that you won’t want to get out and do some of these things, like seeing the northern lights!
One thing to remember is that the Fairbanks area is very dry with low humidity, especially in the winter. But what this means is with layering you can stay warm and dry in winter activities. Whether you are snow machining, dog sledding or skiing, even at -20 degrees below zero you can stay comfortable. Your nose hairs will freeze…but you can stay warm!
For your convenience, you can reserve tickets for these right here with us.
Give us a call in advance, and we’ll make all your reservations for you, so when you arrive, we’ll hand you a nice packet of all your tickets, all ready when you arrive. Call us at 907-388-3943 or call to ask us about whatever you’re interested in doing while here. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
