1st Alaska Outdoor School offers fun tours each summer season in, around, and beyond Fairbanks, in Alaska’s interior region. Between May 15th and the end of September, there are half day, one day and three day guided tours available, to show you the best of what Alaska has to offer visitors.
Did you know that the temperature gets into the 60s and 70s during an Alaskan summer? You can get away with wearing short sleeved shirts, shorts and walking shoes for many days, especially in June, July, and August. Of course, there are some cooler days, where the temperatures hover between the 40s and 50s, so bring long sleeved shirts, jeans, and jackets, too.
One more thing to keep in mind: in Alaska, because of its location, there are 14-20 hours of sunlight per day from May through September. That may take some adjusting on your part to get used to.
1st Alaska Outdoor School’s half day tours in and around Fairbanks will show you the city and its highlights; if conditions are right, you can view the incredible Aurora Borealis (“Northern Lights”) in the sky.
One day tours allow for an adventure outside of Fairbanks to explore the Arctic Circle area and perhaps a visit to the warm Chena Hot Springs—an outdoor oasis in Alaska.
For those who have three days to see and experience as much as possible, 1st Alaska Outdoor School’s guides take you into “Gates of the Arctic National Park” and bring you to the Arctic Ocean and world famous Prudhoe Bay. Spending time “in the bush” and “on the land” offers the chance to see wildlife in its natural habitat, including soaring eagles, caribou, and big brown bears.
