2020 was the year COVID-19 took us all by surprise and forced us to shelter in our homes for weeks on end but now it is our time to get back out there and enjoy all that the world has to offer and what better place to start than in our own backyard, Alaska. With a trip to the Last Frontier the great outdoors will be your home, and its boundless nature and wilderness will be your entertainment.
Of Alaska’s 365 million acres of land only 160,000 has been encroached by civilization, the rest of Alaska’s land is untouched wilderness waiting to be unlocked by you. Within those millions of acres of untouched wilderness live hundreds of thousands of unique wildlife native to Alaska, animals that included the bald eagle, polar bears, bison, whales and many more.
Alaska’s well-maintained and Instagram-worthy scenic highways make it the perfect way to experience all that Alaska has to offer. Touring Alaska by car gives you the freedom to take it slow or pack your itinerary with all the top Alaska tourist spots. While road tripping through Alaska you will come across vibrant and beautiful natural landmarks and can visit some of the small towns scattered throughout the state. You can take time to enjoy the local galleries and boutiques for authentic indigenous art, or fest on some of the locally owned restaurants and dine on fresh-caught Alaska seafood.
Picking the right time to visit Alaska is an important part when trying to take in all that Alaska has to enjoy. Alaska's weather and daylight varies drastically by region and season. In the summer you can enjoy short-sleeves and daytime temperatures of 55° - 70° F but feel warmer due to the long hours of direct sunlight. It is good to know that as summer progresses the weather gets rainier, from 7 rainy days in May in Southcentral to 17 rainy days in the Inside Passage. Alaska’s winter is roughly October through March, with ranging temperatures of -2° - 31° F and likely beautiful snowfall on your trip.
There is much to do in Alaska, one of which is Alaska’s guided adventures. While much of Alaska’s beauty can be seen from behind the wheel to get a better in-depth look of what Alaska is really like many experienced visitors will tell you to take part in the Denali Backcountry Adventure. This guided tour will take you deeper into the park than you could in your car and is jam packed with exploration into the state’s iconic national park. Local Denali guides will ensure you get the best opportunities to experience the park’s legendary landmarks, introduce you to a host of authentic Alaskan activities and a unique creek-side lunch at the Miner’s Day Lodge, and take you through the rugged habitats of bears, moose, caribou and more.
Alaska is just waiting for you to take in all its beauty. Visiting Alaska will be a trip you will never forget, make it your next vacation destination.
