Fairbanks and the Interior Holidays
Alaska’s second largest city, Fairbanks, was founded during the goldrush in the early 1900s and lies at the heart of the state. Here you can visit the excellent Museum of the North, home to an eclectic collection of Alaskan artworks and carvings as well as displays about the state’s bountiful flora, fauna and geology. Don’t miss a trip to Pioneer Park too, where you can enjoy a hearty Alaska Salmon Bake.

Introduction to Alaska
Conveniently located between Fairbanks and Anchorage, accessible by road or rail, is Denali National Park – a 6 million acre, wildlife-rich wilderness of mountains, glaciers, lakes and rivers. Here you are likely to see moose, bears, caribou and even wolves, whilst towering above it all is the 20,320 ft high Denali (formerly Mount McKinley). Take an unforgettable scenic flight for a bird’s eye view or join a tour into the park, keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife!
The Richardson Highway from Fairbanks joins the Alaska Highway, travelling through the riverside town of Delta Junction and across the border into Canada’s Yukon Territory. From here it continues south, all the way to Dawson Creek on the British Columbia/Alberta border. The alternative route into Canada is the Taylor Highway from Tok, which travels via Chicken into the goldrush town of Dawson City, Yukon.
