Summer Solstice was a GREAT time to be in Alaska! Beautiful, friendly, fun, fascinating. History, science, nature, culture, traditions, natural resources, conservation, recycling -just a few of the experiential learnings.

Alaska- beautiful place to visit
07/22/19 by 1st-time traveler Peter
I really enjoyed this trip and would do part of it again. At this point the cruise lines have gotten too plentiful in some areas. These areas are less of what I expected and more touristy. Alaska is beautiful.

Awesome Alaska

First of all, Cole was an amazing tour guide. He was able to teach us about Alaska with personal experiences, stories, and facts, always keeping it interesting and fun to listen to. Denali was truly a highlight with moose, caribou, and bears sighted during the 6 hour tour. Wonderful trip.

Travel tips for Alaska trips

When is the best time to travel to Alaska?

The best time to travel on an Alaska tour is between June and September when the weather is milder. The days are longer, too. In fact, you might even experience 24 hours of daylight. 

Longer days mean more time for sightseeing. June and July are the best months to see wildlife in Alaska, too. Keep an eye out for bears, sea otters, seals, and whales. 

Communities across the state tend to celebrate more during the summer, so you might even get to attend a festival or other cultural event while you’re there!

What are some of the best excursions to do in Alaska?

If you’re looking to add an excursion to your Alaska tour, consider the Ketchikan & Totem Bight State Park tour on our Denali National Park & Wild Alaska Cruise. Ketchikan is known for its charming harbor, Native American culture, and jaw-dropping scenery. You’ll get to walk along the historic boardwalk where colorful homes line the Inside Passage—it’s one of the state’s most scenic waterways. Then, you’ll head over to the Totem Bight State Park to learn about how the U.S. Forest Services and Native American people worked together to preserve important Native American monuments. You’ll even get to see restored and perfectly reconstructed totem poles and a replica of a traditional chieftain’s house. This Alaska group tour ends with a visit to a nearby lookout point, where you’ll see a waterfall and maybe even spot bald eagles, seals, salmon, deer, whales, and bears.

What should I pack for an Alaska tour?

Here are a few items we recommend packing to help make your Alaska tour that much more enjoyable:

  • A heavy winter coat. You can’t visit Alaska without it.
  • Hiking boots. You’ll want a lot of traction as you hike on snowy, or sometimes slippery, paths.
  • Rain gear. The rainy season also occurs during summer, so don’t forget to pack a raincoat and quick-dry pants for our summertime trips.
  • Binoculars. We recommend bringing binoculars on all Alaska land and sea tours for a better view of the incredible wildlife.
  • A sleep mask. Since it’s not uncommon to experience only a few—if any—hours of darkness at night, you’ll want to pack a mask to help ensure a restful nights sleep.

What should I know before I travel to Alaska?

The first thing to know is that Alaska is really, really big—bigger than most people realize. That means it can take longer than you’d expect to travel between places. When you explore Alaska on a guided tour, we provide comfortable transportation to help get you from place to place, so you can focus on the scenery around you.

What are the benefits of traveling to Alaska on a guided tour?

Exploring Alaska on a guided tour has so many benefits, but perhaps the biggest perk is that our travel experts do all the planning for you. We arrange comfortable transportation, accommodations, local guides, and many meals, so all you have to do is enjoy your Alaska vacation!
