On an Alaska cruisetour with Princess, discover what makes the Great Land so special, and craft your own tales of your time on land and sea.

Alaska's Big 3!
Glaciers
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.
Wildlife
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 the water.

Majestic Mountains
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. Get Inspired!

Alaska Excursions

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 or

Native craftsman carve a traditional totem pole, and expand your Alaska cruise experience.

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 more!

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 vacation.

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 and

 find 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

 the 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

 communities 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 off-the-beaten-track. 

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.
