Ideally situated just two hours outside of Denali National Park, home to six million acres of pristine wilderness including famed Mt. McKinley, Fairbanks has been called “Alaska’s Golden Heart”. Originally established as a Gold Rush town, it has grown to become the second largest city in Alaska, yet it still maintains its frontier feeling and character. In this unique destination, incentive travelers can experience many of nature’s marvels — perhaps most famously, the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights — which are viewable for nearly eight months of the year under Fairbanks’ ideal weather conditions that often create perfect clear night skies.
In summertime, Fairbanks’ close proximity to the Arctic Circle means that the city is bathed in nearly 24 hours of daylight, and the sparkling rivers and mountain trails beckon for long days of exploration. Dig in to Fairbanks’ Gold Rush history with a gold panning experience, fill your lungs with clean mountain air on a breathtaking hike, and encounter local creatures such as reindeer and musk ox. Or plan a creative incentive trip in early Spring during the World Ice Art Championships and witness creative and whimsical masterpieces from the world’s best ice sculptors, while also taking advantage of prime viewing opportunities for the Northern Lights. Snowmobiling and dogsled mushing also provide immersive Arctic experiences, and we can recount the day’s discoveries over regional fare at one of the great restaurants just as residents do.
There is no place in the world like Alaska! Travel right into the heart of the Last Frontier on your next incentive program with an unforgettable adventure in Fairbanks.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much again for the organization and successful execution of the two incentive trips. I was highly impressed about your company’s ability to cover the complete spectrum from a very upscale tour, such as ‘On Gates to Alaska’ to the smooth handling of the major event ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ with more than 100 participants. Both events have definitely improved and deepened our relationship with our clients
