Places to visit after moving to Fort Wainwright, AK

Moving to Fort Wainwright puts you directly into the heart of America’s most northern state – a true winter wonderland. If you have the opportunity to be here for any amount of time, you have to take advantage of being among some of the most exotic wildlife and scenery available to the human eye. Alaska is full of lakes and mountains offering excitement and fun for every adventurer. While stationed at Fort Wainwright, take time to see some of the following places:

  • For fishing, boating, and camping, venture out to one of the many lakes you’ll find in this region including Deadman Lake, Teklanika Channel Lake, and of course Reindeer Lake (a move so close to the North Pole has to include a visit to this nostalgic area).
  • Once you walk, hike, or bike your way to the top of Azure Mountain Trail, you’ll be mesmerized by the breathtaking view of the Adirondack Mountain Range.
  • Boasting the only night-ski in the Fairbanks area, travel to Birch Hill Ski and Snowboard for a day, or night, of skiing, snowboarding, and tubing. It also has an amazing Terrain park fully loaded with mounds, rails, and boxes for doing tricks.
  • While stationed at Fort Wainwright, you’ll be a short 14 miles away from the one and only North Pole. This is the town that bleeds with the Christmas spirit year round. As you travel down streets named for the cheerful holiday complete with candy cane light poles, you simply must visit the Santa Claus House – the official home of Santa Claus with live reindeer and Santa himself waiting to greet all who pass through.
