Q: Is weather in Fairbanks late December and early January too bad for travel there? Are hotels open? I would like to see northern lights & take a dog sled tour.
A: We specialize in summer travel but I can provide some information that may be helpful. Fairbanks is a unique winter destination and can be fun as long as you are prepared for the cold!
There are plenty of hotels open year round in Fairbanks. For trips specifically to view the northern lights I would recommend contacting the Northern Alaska Tour Company. They do trips throughout the winter for northern lights viewings. As for other information about Fairbanks, tours and weather I suggest you visit the website of their visitor center.
