Alaska

Tourism Information

Alaska has some of the most incredible scenery to be found in the United States. In order to enjoy all the state has to offer, visitors must get out and experience it for themselves.

Alaska is accessible year round by air, land or sea. Many visitors choose to combine modes of travel, arriving by air and departing by sea or driving to Alaska and then boarding the ferry for the trip home. Each has advantages and offers a unique perspective. For instance, the best way to see the coastline is by ferry or cruiseship, while there are certain types of wildlife you may only see by taking the open road. And if you want a birds eye view of the glaciers, your best outlook will be from an airplane or day cruise. No matter what your interests, you are sure to find it on your journey to Alaska.

Alaska is a land of superlatives and adventure. The Great Land consists of five distinct regions: Inside Passage, Southcentral, Interior, Far North and Southwest.

Temperatures in Alaska during the summer range from 60F-80F. Nighttime and early mornings are cooler, from the 40's - 50's. Late August and September departures could encounter cooler temperatures and slightly fewer hours of sunlight, as fall arrives early at these latitudes.
