Alaska Tours Travel Tips

  • Be sure to spend as much time in cities and towns as you do in Alaska's nature. It's great to try to mix mingling with the locals and experiencing city and town life with exploring the natural phenomenon in Alaska.
  • During the summer, Alaska gets so much sun. Try your best to stay on a regular schedule, even if it is bright out until 1 a.m.! It's great if you can try to stay at an accommodation that gives you blackout curtains.
  • If seeing the Northern Lights is one of the top items on your must-do list, invest in a good camera. It can be hard taking a great photo of the Northern Lights on your phone, unfortunately.
  • Many stores and restaurants throughout Alaska don't take cards and don't have card readers. Because of that, be sure to always have at least some cash on you.
  • When visiting Alaska, you absolutely must hop on a train. It's one of the best ways to explore the state because it's filled with incredible natural sites. Be sure to try to get a spot in a dome car for epic views!

Alaska Tours Things To Do

  • Hop on an Alaskan Railway Train
    Hop on an Alaskan Railway Train

    The Alaskan Railway is one of the top ways to explore Canada. It goes through almost the entire country and stops at some of the best destinations, including Seward and Denali National Park. The wilderness in Alaska is incredibly diverse, and there's no better way to see it than from the window of a train car. If you can, try to sit in a domed car. This offers panoramic views of the window, which makes your train experience even more unforgettable. This is the perfect activity for families, solo travelers, and couples. It's truly a fun way to travel throughout Canada.

    You Should Know

    Book your tickets well in advance if you plan on going on a train. During peak seasons, the trains can get booked quite quickly.

The park itself is dedicated to the 19th-century Klondike Gold Rush. Inside the visitor center, you can learn about the Klondike Gold Rush and the park's history and culture before hopping out and exploring the park. The park is best explored on an Alaskan Tour because you'll have someone with you the whole time who will show you all the hidden gem areas of the park!

Some of the must-visit places near Anchorage include the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, the Portage Glacier, and the Alaska Native Heritage Center.

Alaska Tour Packages

Quick Facts

Arguably, the best time to visit Alaska depends on what you want to see. Do you want to do a lot of outdoor activities? Visit during the summer. Do you want to see the Northern Lights? The winter might be a better time for you to visit instead. Most people visit Alaska during the summer months. The shoulder season months aren't that busy, but the weather is still great. 

  • Spring and Fall - October to November and March to April - Shoulder Season

    During the shoulder seasons, not a whole lot of people visit Alaska compared to the summer months. The temperature averages around 65°F, which is near-perfect weather. Luckily, this time of year also still sees a decent amount of sunshine.

  • Summer - May to September - High Season

    The summer months get the most amount of sunlight, so it's the busiest time in Alaska. The weather tends to be around 75°F, depending on the time of day. This is when most outdoor enthusiasts visit Alaska. Prices are at their highest during the summer because so many people visit.

  • Winter - December to February - Low Season

    The winter months are the state's low season because there isn't a lot of sunlight at all in Alaska during this time. The temperature is a bit cooler and is generally around 30°F. Prices are at their lowest during this time, and this is also the best time of year to visit to see the Northern Lights.
