Alaska's Big 3!
Imagine sailing past towering peaks of snowy white glaciers, miles wide.
Only the sounds of wind and seagulls disturb the silence. Then a massive
crackling and a thunderous roar echo across the pristine bay. The ice-scape
rumbles and quakes as the glacier splinters and calves, sending ice and
snow cascading into the sea. There's no spectacle in the world that
surpasses these towering frozen masses and best displays the fierce
majesty of the region.
Eagles nesting in treetops. Moose grazing through lush meadows
surrounded by snow-capped mountain ranges. A breaching whale crashing
down into the tranquil sea. On an Alaska vacation, it's not uncommon for
you to see all of these animals and more, such as Denali National Park's
Big 5: brown bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep and caribou. You'll also
have plenty of chances to enjoy the sights of humpback, beluga and orca
whales, along with harbor seals, sea lions and sea otters frolicking in
Take a moment to pause and gaze up. Massive, eternally snow-capped
mountains rise majestically against the bright blue sky, which darkens
to a majestic indigo at twilight. Wild, untamed and exquisitely unique,
this astounding landscape dwarfs your wildest imagination. No other
place offers such untouched beauty. Home to almost 3,000 peaks and
Denali, North America's tallest mountain, Alaska's summits are a feast
for your eyes. And one you'll never forget.
Don't just visit this famous land, live it on Alaska
excursions. Rush across the snow on a dog sled with a professional musher,
fly fish for salmon in fresh rivers and soar over miles of glacial tundra in
a helicopter. Watch migrating humpback whales from the deck of a catamaran

Tips for planning your Alaska vacation
Check out Travel Alaska's insider's guide on planning your next Alaska
adventure, including when and where to go, how long to stay, when to book, and
Alaska is home to seventeen of North America’s tallest peaks (including the
tallest in North America, Denali), 30,000 square miles of glaciers (an area
about the size of Maine),
60% of the country’s total national park lands (including the largest,
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park), and a total area bigger than Texas,
California, and Montana - combined!
With all of this greatness, it’s easy to see why planning a trip to Alaska is
high on many travelers’ lists, and why it can feel a bit overwhelming.
The good news is, no matter when or where you go, you are sure to have an
incredible Alaska adventure.
Our insider’s tips will help you get a head start on planning your next Alaska
When to Go
Your first decision is when to visit Alaska. While most visitors come to Alaska
during the summer season, from June – August,
every season and month offers its own unique experiences. Summer is best for the
warmest temperatures, longest hours of daylight,
best wildlife viewing, and the most tours, activities, cruise options, and
accommodations available. However, if you’re looking to get away from the crowds
better deals, consider visiting during the shoulder seasons in spring (April –
May) and fall (September – October).
Another big bonus for traveling in fall: the chance to witness Alaska’s
incredible autumn colors.
Winter is the best time to visit Alaska for one of our top natural phenomena:
the northern lights, or aurora borealis.
This incredible colorful display is viewable from late August through April.
You’ll also find an array of fun winter outdoor recreation activities like
skiing, dog sledding, snow machining, and more
plus some of the best festivals the state has to offer.
How long to go
Next, decide how long you can go. You could spend a lifetime exploring this
great state, but you can plan a memorable and exciting visit even if you have
just a few days.
Most visitors spend seven to fourteen days in Alaska. Much of this decision
depends on where you want to go and how you’re getting around.
Cruising is one of the most popular ways to visit Alaska – especially for
first-time visitors – with most cruises lasting seven to ten days.
If you have the time, we recommend adding on a post-cruise land tour (typically
several days by train or motorcoach) so you can experience
Inside Passage by sea and go on to explore the South Central and Interior
regions by land.
Did You Know?
If you put the state of Alaska over a map of the Lower 48 states, Alaska
stretches east to west from Savannah, Georgia to Los Angeles, California,
and north to south from North Dakota to the Texas panhandle. Meaning – Alaska is
a big state! Traveling between some
can take a good part of the day (or more) depending on your mode of
transportation. Many communities are not along the road
system or rail belt and are only accessible by plane or boat. Make sure to
account for travel distances and build in extra time to stop
and smell the Arctic roses along the way! In Alaska, the journey is truly part
of the adventure, and you’ll have just as much fun
and see some of the most beautiful sights while traveling around the state as
you do in your final destinations.
Don’t try to pack in too many destinations when planning your trip. We recommend
picking your top destinations and planning at least 2-3 days around each spot to
give you enough time to travel and enjoy the area. Learn more about our regions,
communities, and national parks & public lands to start planning your route -
weather you're interested in visiting the top sights or getting
When to book
Most visitors book their Alaska travel three to six months in advance. The
earlier you book, the better your chances to get your top picks for
accommodations, tours, and activities.
While it’s possible to book a last-minute trip to Alaska, we highly recommend
booking early to ensure availability – especially during the summer months and
around popular festivals and events.
