Summer Activities

Residing in the interior of Alaska has its perks for those who enjoy the outdoors. The University of Alaska Fairbanks is one of the best gateways to these forms of activities.

With 36 miles of summer access trails on and around campus you don't even have to go very far to experience what the interior of Alaska has to offer.

The Chena and Tanana are two majors rivers that are easily accessible to people in the Fairbanks community, and of course with flowing water comes great possibilities for fun! It seems near everyone I've discussed this topic with mentioned floating the Chena river as one of their favorite outdoor activities in the summer.

Bicycling around Alaska is one of the best ways to take in all of wonderful sights it has to offer. Numerous biking trails on and off campus give anyone in the community the ability to safely enjoy this activity.

Camping might well be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of things to do in Alaska. There are countless choices when deciding where to camp here in the interior.

If you are more interested in rumbling around on the tundra with your ATV you will find that Fairbanks is one of the best points of egress.

If it is competitive sports that peak your interest then you would find that outdoor sports abound at UAF in the summer. Even some.... slightly less mainstream sports find a home here...

Summer in Fairbanks is not just for adventure and sports though. The farmers market gives people in the community a spectacular chance to experience the extraordinary produce that is grown locally.

All in all your choices are limitless when finding a way to delve into the great outdoors in Alaska. The University of Alaska Fairbanks as well as the city of Fairbanks offers many tools to aid your journey, not least of which the the Outdoor Adventures office here at UAF.

Such as with all things in life remember that
safety comes first! Always adhere to the safety guidelines provided for any activity you wish to partake.

Now get out there and have some fun!
