What people are saying about Fairbanks
Words can't describe how incredible this adventure was. Our driver was great. He was prompt with the pick-up. He also shared with us what to expect. The lights, I don't know how to put it into words. As for the dogsled portion. OMG, awesome to say the least. We are fairly well traveled and I can't think of anything that topped that experience. Much different than I thought it would be, but, it was incredible. Our musher was one of the nicest and most informative people I have met in a very long time. I believe his name was Driese. Some of you will see that the dinner has some harsh reviews. I can say, it was fine. Not the best, but, come on, what do you really expect. It may not be something you like, but, hey, the appetizers were awesome! The Salmon was sliced perfectly and the dried Salami was crazy good. Thank you
Wild Alaska is a very good family owned travel agency. We had a little trouble before we departed from Fairbanks about the van, but the owner was very responsive and sent us another van quickly. From there, we learned that they have a professional technician to check every van everyday. Our guide for that day is Joe, who is a very patient and good driver. He drives very carefully and only passes other slow trucks when it is 100% safe. The Dalton Hwy had lots of holes on the road, but he tried to avoid each one while driving. He also stopped by some very good viewpoints during the trip and we took lots of good pictures. Also, we were very lucky to see the northern light on our way back. We were even able to see some red northern lights. Overall it was a very good trip and we had a very good time. :)
It's a full day trip, very awesome. Our guide Randy a survivalist and very experienced guide was extremely knowledgeable about the pipeline, the Dalton highway, the area and the Aurora borealis, among other things. Very fun, a trip of a lifetime! I would really like to add a photo, but there is no option for that.
The dog sled ride was just awesome and the musher was great. Sledding at night with all the snow and Northern Lights was the best. The midnight meal was NOT good but she tried. Since we were not there for the food it was awesome and having a place to warm up was great!
Amazing experience! Defined recommend it, especially if you like action!!! Ken, the guide, was very pleasant, explained everything about the use of snowmobile and gave us a very informative tour for Fairbanks! The scenery was great!
