About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Morris Thompson Cultural & Visitors Center, 101 Dunkel St, Fairbanks, AK 99701-4806

After pickup from your Fairbanks hotel, your guide will take you to the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitor Center, located on the banks of the Chena River in downtown Fairbanks. Named after an Alaska native and political leader, this community center celebrates native Alaskan culture and natural history through interesting exhibits, indigenous art and tools and life-sized panoramas depicting Alaska’s wildlife and landscapes throughout the seasons.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Alyeska Pipeline Viewing Point, 1671 Steese Highway, Fairbanks, AK 99712

You will visit the Alyeska Pipeline and learn about the great history of the pipeline.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Pioneer Park, 2300 Airport Way, Fairbanks, AK 99701-4014

Your guide will then take you to Pioneer Park, a 44-acre (109-hectare) park located along the Chena River that was opened in 1967 to celebrate the centennial of the Alaska Purchase. This park features many museums and attractions that commemorate early Alaskan history, such as Gold Rush Town, comprised of 35 restored buildings from the Gold Rush era; the SS

Nenana, the world's second-longest wooden-hulled ship that carried passengers and cargo along the Chena River in the mid 1900s; and the Tanana Valley Railroad Museum, featuring the oldest working steam locomotive in Alaska.

After this fascinating Alaskan cultural and historical experience, you’ll be taken back to your hotel.

Please keep in mind that some attractions are only open seasonal and adjustments can be made. We also can take additional wishes into our itinerary.

Dave picked us up promptly at the front of our Lodge. The van was clean and comfortable. Dave informed us it would be just the three of us for the day. He was quick to reorganize our day because we had already visited a couple of his scheduled stops. He was very knowledgeable and informative about the Fairbanks area and Alaska. We enjoyed our day and would recommend seeing Fairbanks in a small group. We learned so much more.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Fairbanks tour. Our guide, Anke, was delightful, knowledgeable and informative. We were supposed to have a group tour, but we were the only ones, so we got a private tour. After showing us the places on the official tour, Anke asked what we wanted to see and also showed us some of her favorite places in Fairbanks and the surrounding area. What a wonderful day! Brina

Our guide, Patricia Baer, was very informative, very personable and a fun lady to spend a few hours with. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing and learning about Fairbanks and Alaska in general. As Patricia got to know me and my friend on the tour she actually personalized a portion of the tour for us to match our interest in bird watching. I highly recommend the Alaskan Heritage Tour - and of course if you are fortunate to get Patricia as your guide the tour will be excellent!
