Travel to Alaska, Summer, Fall, Winter or Spring

Insert Alaska Picture

Years ago we took our family to Alaska in the summer time. We rented a motor home to avoid the duplicate cost of hotel and large van for all of us. It was a great adventure and summertime certainly gave us long days to do whatever we wanted to do.

What’s the right season for your travel to the last American Frontier?

Summer in Alaska

  • Summer in Alaska can be warm enough to swim during the day 60–70’s, but can cool down into the 40’s at night.
  • 19 Hours of daylight during mid summer months give you plenty of time for hiking and site seeing.
  • Humpback whales return to Alaska so head to the Inside Passage.
  • Summer is a great time to enjoy a cruise to Alaska

Fall in Alaska

  • Temperatures cool down through the fall.
  • Most visitors leave with less travel on cruise ships.
  • Enjoy the splendor of fall colors.
  • You can often times find end of season travel deals
  • Head to Denali and do some animal spotting and you may see sheep, bear or moose.

Winter in Alaska

  • To Darn cold for me in the Winter. 0 F or colder, I’ll take Florida. But for you winter lovers…
  • You have a better chance fo seeing the Northern Lights, especially with the long nights
  • Great Skiing, where the snow start falling in October
  • Ice Sculptures and Winter Festivals

Spring in Alaska

  • In the spring you can expect dryer conditions and less rain than later in the summer
  • You can still snow ski into April so think about spring sking
  • Fewer visitors to Denali National Park in the spring
  • Bird watching starts in spring with many species returning to Alaska
  • Spring marks the start of whale watching season
