Planning a Trip? Try Alaska

Alaska boasts 663,000 square miles of forest, tundra, and rivers, and an abundance of natural beauty is everywhere. The state of Alaska is chock-full of opportunities for adventures you simply cannot experience anywhere else in the world. It’s big, wild, incredibly beautiful, and breathtaking in the fall.

Why visit Alaska now?

Here are some compelling reasons to point your compass to Alaska in September and early October:

  • The weather is pleasant. Summer’s heat has passed (along with the mosquitoes), and winter’s chill has yet to settle in.
  • The plants and trees are blooming, and wildlife is active.
  • The daylight hours are still fairly long, so you can make the most of the days you spend there.
  • Aurora borealis, or the Northern Lights, is very active during the equinox — September is one of the best times to experience this phenomenon.
  • The summer crowds are gone. Plenty of hotels, lodges, and campsites are available, so you can opt to rough it in a tent or savor the comfort of a fine hotel.


Some places you don’t want to miss on your Alaska visit include

  • Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula — Home of fantastic dining and shopping options plus the Anchorage Museum. The Kenai Fjords National Park is home to sea mammals, thousands of nesting birds, and tidewater glaciers which are best seen from a boat.
  • Juneau — Experience wildlife watching along the Gastineau Channel, the Alaska State Museum, the Mendenhall Glacier, and more.
  • Haines — Witness heart-stopping geography and architectural charm. Stay in the Hotel Halsingland, once Fort Seward’s officers’ quarters and now a rambling hotel with a superb restaurant. In the fall, the Chilkat River hosts some of the largest concentrations of bald eagles in North America — some 4,000 birds!
  • Denali National Park and Preserve — The park is home to Mount McKinley (20,237 feet, the tallest peak in North America).

For private jet owners, the recommended travel method is to fly into Anchorage or Fairbanks, although there are several airstrips in small towns near Denali National Park. Once you’re on the ground, you can rent a car to explore the state or take the Alaska Railroad to enjoy the gorgeous scenery.

If you have never traveled to Alaska before, now is the perfect time to go. Embrace the spirit of adventure, and enjoy a trip you will never forget!
