About Us
Despite being almost 500 miles away from ocean-side ports in Southcentral Alaska, Fairbanks is a popular destination in the summer for visitors taking a cruise to the state. That’s because all the major cruise lines coming to Alaska offer one-way Gulf of Alaska cruises that include the port of Vancouver in Canada and either Whittier or Seward as the port in Alaska. These cruises typically offer land tour packages that incorporate Fairbanks and Denali National Park and Preserve into their itinerary. In the packages, Fairbanks is generally the first or last place people visit, making it easy for visitors to add on extra days so they can experience more of Alaska’s Interior and Arctic with Fairbanks as their base. Other cruise visitors will take a one-way cruise across the Gulf of Alaska, and then explore Fairbanks and other communities on the road or rail system on their own.
