About this activity

Fairbanks is an incredibly beautiful city, and seeing it from the rivers gives kids a whole new perspective on the landscapes and the wildlife. It's beautiful!

Riverboat Discovery will take you on one of the great rivers of the state! There is only one tour, and it's unforgettable. Want to know more? We thought so!

This cruise will take the entire family 3 1/2 hours right into the heart of Alaska, and it will also introduce you to another family - one that has called the rivers of Alaska life for an incredibnle five generations!

Ever seen a sea plane take off? You will have now!

You will also visit the kennels and home of a four-time Iditarod winner and her champion dogs, and kids can learn all about the amazing ancient Athabascan Indian cultures when you stop off for your personalized tour of the Chena Indian VIllage.

Do you think you could live as they do? Have a look at their cabins that are made of spruce logs, and huts and fur pelts. Kids will learn all about the animals that were food in such a harsh Arctic climate. 

Riverboat Discovery is family run, and has been a tradition int he Binkley family for over 100 years. Pretty incredible!
