Welcome the family to a winter wonderland
See the best of icy Alaska in the winter on this family-focused adventure from Fairbanks. Get ready to chase the Northern Lights, explore virtually untouched natural wonders and maybe even catch a glimpse of Santa Claus along the way. This 5-day adventure through Alaska is perfect for families looking for a change of scenery in one of the world’s most stunning winter wonderlands. Explore America’s northernmost reaches as you take in spectacular scenic viewpoints from lakeside to mountaintop, vist the 'North Pole', and take to the snow for a dog sledding experience alongside adorable huskies. And, when you’re ready to warm up, chill out in Chena’s natural hot springs. This is an adventure full of family time you’ll never forget.
Learn what mushing means, plus spot adorable baby huskies on a thrill-seeking dog sledding experience deep in the Alaskan Wilderness.
Make magical holiday memories with a visit to where it’s Christmas every day – Santa Claus’s house in the Alaskan North Pole, with a chance to make reindeer friends.
There are few more unforgettable natural sights (and on this trip you’ll see a bunch) than the Aurora Borealis. Get the local expertise on the best places to see the Northern Lights.
It's not just the kids that will be amazed at the wacky world of ice on display at the Aurora Ice Museum, and you'll appreciate a soak in Chena’s natural hot springs for some well-earned relaxation time.
This is a winter trip so you must have the appropriate footwear and clothing. Bring warm clothing with you, including base layers, a warm hat, gloves and a thick coat, as well as a rain jacket and waterproof shoes.
Weather is unpredictable in Alaska, especially in the winter, so we may need to make itinerary changes to keep the group safe and well at all times. If this occurs, we will do our best to find comparable activities and experiences.
This trip is new to our range this year. Despite rigorous planning and research, new itineraries can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a welcome surprise, but every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that is what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
