Firepit / Barbecue Grill

Hand crafted benches and a metal fire pit with endless wood for everybody to use. Sit around a warming fire, exchange travel stories and travel plans with other adventurers from all over the world. Cook your own steak on a big barbecue and enjoy your food at the picnic table or the log swing. 

Wireless Internet

You might have been out of touch with your loved ones for a few days or even weeks. No worries, a wireless signal covers most of the property

Laundry, showers, bathroom

Are you in need of some cleaning? There’s a washer and dryer and we will wash your clothes for USD 8.—per load. There are 2 coin operated showers, 3 bathrooms and 2 male/female wash stalls with hairdryers at no charge.

Cyber Space

Here you can read your favorite book or educate yourselves with our selection of Alaskan maps, travel books, outdoor magazines and other helpful Alaskan literature.  Check your e-mails on spacious futons, cover yourselves with blankets and pillows or watch a movie/DVD.


In the kitchen you will find a big refrigerator with attached freezer, a microwave, an oven with a propane cooking stove and plenty of silverware, plates, pans and pots for your ultimate cooking experience, if you got what it takes to be a cook.  Free coffee available 24/7.

Main office building

Planning your trip? Come to the office and find out where and what to expect out there in the Alaskan Bush. Running dogs, living in the bush and guiding trips all over Alaska has taught me a few things and sharing my own experiences with you will help getting you not only ready for any outdoor adventure but also will ensure you visit the parts of Alaska that are right for you.
Here you also get all the info you need to find out where the good restaurants are, the places to visit, which hotspots not to miss, what trips to book or simply finding out what’s happening in Fairbanks. Sven or his staff knows what’s going on in and around town and love to share their knowledge with you.

Parking/How to get here

Should you arrive with your own car there’s a big parking lot and plenty of space for any size rig. We do not provide a shuttle service. If you arriving from the airport or train station, the best way to get here is by taxi. It is only about a 5 min drive and should only cost you between $10-15 per ride.

The Fun Corner

What about a game of volleyball? a foosball match or a play of ping pong? Unleash the monster, release the energy and join in on the fun. Along with all the other activities we have planned for next summer you won’t get bored at Sven’s.
