Winter Travel Destination: Alaska


February 20, 2019

What’s one of best places in the world to embrace winter’s cold temperatures and experience a true winter wonderland? Alaska, hands down. If it’s been on your radar, pack your bags and check out these must-do activities in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Snowmobile

Tour the wilderness of the North Pole with Rod’s Alaskan Guide Service. Don’t worry about the cold; their luxury machines are equipped with heated handgrips and helmets. Follow Rod’s excellent guide through the forest and snow laden terrain.

 

Ice-fishing

Pair your snowmobile tour with ice-fishing, another can’t-miss activity. Rod’s Alaskan Guide Service takes you to a spot where you can catch fresh fish, from rainbow trout to arctic char, and of course, king salmon.

Stay warm inside Rod’s heated cabin, which has holes through which you fish. Once you catch something, the knowledgeable guide will cook it for you, on the spot.   

A bonus? Book the nighttime excursion, where you might just see the aurora break out in the sky.

 

Chena Hot Springs

Defrost from the freeze in this natural hot spring. An Instagram hotspot, you’ll see visitors not only soaking in the heat, but also taking many a selfie and video in the amazing hue of aqua blue next to snow-covered rocks and trees.

Once it gets too hot, step out and pop into the Ice Museum on-site.

 

Dog Sledding

Take in the scenery of the great outdoors on a sled, pulled by huskies.

Of all the sledding tours, we love Just Short of Magic. Mushers here treat dogs like family and share the passion for partnering with these creatures in letting them do what they love to do.

An Alaskan favorite, if you go at the right time, you can also witness the Idiatrod (March 2 this year)—the race that takes mushers 1,150 miles from Anchorage to Nome.
