Overview

The Trip

Experience fall in interior Alaska when the days get shorter, the tundra turns red, and winter can’t be far behind. Stunning displays of color are produced by the yellow and red leaves of birch, aspen, poplar, and tamarack against the dark green backdrop of black and white spruce. Our goal is to experience the best of the fall season in Fairbanks and the surrounding boreal ecosystems.

In addition to variety of outdoor activities, we will have several indoor educational visits, plus some time in town to visit shops and search downtown for the best coffee and baked goods.
