Travel Recommendations in Alaska
Winter Travel Recommendations in Alaska:
- See Snowy Landscapes: One of the best things about visiting Alaska in winter is the snowy landscapes. You can head north to Alaska and see endless mountains covered with snow, icy river banks with fluffy snow building up, and pine trees heavy laden with fat frost crystals. Some suggested places include Girdwood, the ski town, for snow-filled trees and breathtaking inlet views from the ski slopes, and Turnagain Arm for beautiful ice flows and mountain photos1.
- Gaze at the Aurora Borealis: Alaska offers a great opportunity to see the Northern Lights. One of the best places to view the Aurora is Fairbanks as it is often dark and clear, but you can see them as far south as Anchorage any time in the winter1.
- Try Winter Sports: If you are an active person who loves the outdoors, Alaska is for you. In winter, there are plenty of options for skiing, dog sledding, snowboarding, snow machining, tubing, cross country skiing, ice fishing, kayaking, fat biking, and more1.
I didn’t get a chance to gather information on the best places to visit in Alaska during summer. I did find out that Fairbanks has the warmest summers in Alaska, with daytime temperatures ranging from 66 °F to 73 °F between June and August2, but it also gets bitterly cold in January, with average highs for the month sitting at just over 1 degree Fahrenheit3.
