Fairbanks 2020 Visitors Guide Explores the Aurora, Midnight Sun and Winter Seasons

Fairbanks, Alaska (AK) – The Explore Fairbanks 2020 Official Visitors Guide, is a free 78-page, full-color booklet. Fairbanks enjoys year-round visitation and the Midnight Sun Season, Aurora Season and Winter Season are all showcased prominently in the new guide. The annual publication is designed to capture the features and attractions specific to life in the region as well as ways to go beyond Fairbanks to experience Denali National Park, the Arctic and Interior Alaska. Additionally, the guide focuses on Fairbanks’ revitalized downtown, the contemporary arts and food scene and local outdoor hot spots.

 

Fairbanks delineates the Aurora Season as August 21 through April 21, when the sky is dark enough to afford visitors the opportunity of chasing the aurora. Fairbanks’ location is ideal for northern lights viewing because it is under the “Auroral Oval,” a ring-shaped zone where aurora activity is concentrated. Additionally, Fairbanks’ low precipitation and distance from coastal areas contributes to consistently clear nights. All combined, these variables make the Fairbanks region an outstanding destination for aurora viewing. Conversely, the Midnight Sun Season runs from April 22 through August 20. The midnight sun shines brightly for the whole summer with the most sunlight occurring between May 17 and July 27, when Fairbanks experiences 70 straight days of light. Winter Season is central to life in Fairbanks and the region can guarantee a snowy winter landscape from November through March.

 

Known as the "Golden Heart of Alaska," Fairbanks is located in the center of Alaska and serves as the basecamp for Alaska’s vast Interior and Arctic. Places situated nearby are Denali National Park and Preserve, the Arctic Circle, Chena Hot Springs, North Pole and a myriad of villages, refuges and parks. The Arctic is featured prominently as Fairbanks is the hub for travel, research, supplies and transportation to the area. The guide highlights year-round activities available in the frontier community that include fishing, wildlife viewing, birdwatching, hiking, visiting museums and floating the Chena River. Additional activities take place during the winter months, such as dog mushing, ice sculpting, snowmobiling and skiing. The guide also features exhibitions, attractions and performances focused on Alaska Native heritage, contemporary arts and gold rush history.

 

The calendar section details significant events including the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics, the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race and the Midnight Sun Festival. The guide also lists a wide variety of seasonal and year-round accommodations, services, restaurants, shopping and attractions. The Aurora and Midnight Sun Tracker, a popular feature of the Explore Fairbanks website, is also featured in the guide.
