The 2024 Official Fairbanks Visitors Guide is now available for free from Explore Fairbanks. Completely redesigned for this year, the 72-page, full-color booklet provides helpful information for planning a trip to Fairbanks, Alaska, throughout the year.
Prominently depicted in the vibrant guide are Fairbanks’ three seasons – Midnight Sun, Aurora and Winter – that pave the way for year-round visitation. The annual publication illustrates features and attractions specific to life in the region as well as ways to journey to Denali National Park and Preserve, the Arctic and Interior Alaska. Additionally, the guide focuses on Fairbanks’ delightful downtown, the contemporary arts and food scene, and local outdoor hotspots.
The guide highlights activities available throughout the year in the frontier community including fishing, wildlife viewing, birdwatching, hiking, visiting museums and activities on the Chena River. Other pursuits take place during the winter months, including dog mushing, mingling with reindeer, ice sculpting, snowmobiling and skiing. The guide also features exhibitions, attractions and performances focused on inspirational Alaska Native peoples, spirited pioneers and nature-inspired artists.
Arts, entertainment and events are featured prominently including blockbuster events such as the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics, Golden Days, Midnight Sun Festival and the World Ice Art Championships. The guide also lists a wide variety of seasonal and year-round accommodations, services, restaurants, shopping and attractions.
This year’s redesigned guide features a new cover design, an updated interior layout that allows more space for photos as well as refreshed text throughout. Accommodations business information has also been streamlined by merging the narrative listings and the “At-A-Glance” grid details into one easy-to-use resource.
