Cruises From Fairbanks

Our Alaska Cruisetours are the only way to see this fascinating town as part of your Alaska cruise. And it is something to see. Fairbanks, Alaska’s second-largest city was born of gold rush frenzy, thanks to Felix Pedro, a prospector who found the precious metal in 1902 in a stream now known as “Pedro Creek.” Fairbanks features captivating excursions for history enthusiasts. Hop aboard a three-hour Riverboat Discovery Tour and visit the kennels of the late four-time Iditarod champion, Susan Butcher. Pan for gold in the Tanana Valley and explore the site of Gold Dredge 8. Though much of Fairbanks today is an amalgam of modern shops and malls, its history is celebrated at Pioneer Park, which features the Tanana Railroad Museum and a gold rush town comprising 35 restored buildings.
