1. Re: Feb./March Itinerary any advice.

Are you getting a lot better price for a round trip out of Fairbanks as opposed to flying in to Anchorage and home from Fairbanks or vice versa?

I've looked at doing this trip but haven't been able to swing it yet! So will be following this post. I've always looked at flying in to Anchorage, train to Fairbanks, home from there or round trip on the train & home from Anchorage.

Prior to our move to AK we have ridden the Aurora Winter train, both directions at three different years. Never, fly up to Fairbanks (or Anchorage) for the same weekend. I mean we arrived from outside at one or the other and left from the other; therefore an extra Anchorage/Fairbanks was not necessary

What are you planning to do on 2/27, your first full day in Fairbanks before you rent a car on your return? The town is not very friendly to people without cars, especially in the winter.

We don't have anything planned for that day. It will be about 1:30 am our time when we arrive. Was hoping maybe to take a taxi to get something to eat and some snacks for train ride.
