Known as the Last Frontier, Alaska remains beyond the travel horizons of some, but those who do visit this wilderness can enjoy its imposing landscapes and unparalleled natural beauty.

Flights to Alaska

The majority of travelers booking flights to Alaska will choose Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) as their entry point, with many passengers connecting to smaller airports from Anchorage. International airlines do service the airports of Fairbanks, Juneau, and Ketchikan as well. Low cost travel options usually favor ANC which then enables easy access to other parts of Alaska. Numerous bus and shuttle companies offer low cost services to and from the airport, and a number of local hotels offer their guests discounts on shuttle services such as Suvana. Deals are also available on rental cars and taxi services. More adventurous travelers may take Alaska flights to Ketchikan International Airport (KTN), which is situated on an island a short ferry ride from the city itself.

Alaska Weather

Alaska is an enormous place (more than half the size of the continental U.S.), so the weather is variable depending on region and season. The southeast has four distinct seasons and experiences the highest rainfall, but also the mildest summers. Travelers on Alaska flights not prepared for extreme cold should consider heading for Anchorage, while those hoping to see the renowned Northern Lights should consider heading for Fairbanks which has easier access to the northern region. Wherever you are headed in Alaska, it’s advisable to dress in layers as the weather is liable to change quickly and snowstorms in summer are quite possible.

Getting Around Alaska

After booking flights to Alaska, the next priority is deciding how you will travel once you have arrived. With so much ground to cover, it’s important to plan ahead and judge how much you can conceivably achieve in the time you are there. If you are visiting more remote or isolated areas, traveling by air is a great way to access small fishing villages and other isolated areas of natural beauty. The Alaska Park connection is a luxury bus service that gives visitors a budget option to see some of Alaska’s most scenic highways, while the Alaska Railroad connects the city of Anchorage to popular destinations such as Denali National Park—offering day trips and overnight packages.

Alaska Attractions

Most travelers booking flights to Alaska are drawn by its wilderness and capacity for outdoor adventure. But, with cities such as Anchorage and Juneau offering a spirited and cosmopolitan experience, Alaska has more to offer than just mountains and mushing.

  • Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race: the most famous (and grueling) event in Alaska
  • Denali National Park: home to the grizzly bear, caribou, and moose
  • The Alaska Cruise: stops at destinations such as Ketchikan and Juneau
  • Chena Hot Springs Resort: open year-round and offering winter sports as well as restorative hot springs
