When should I vacation in Alaska?

With four dramatic seasons to enjoy, you should plan your Alaskan vacation according to your favorite activities. In the winter, go snowshoeing at Denali National Park or ski the slopes of Alyeska Resort. Summer is good for hiking the fragrant forests of Chugach State Park and keeping an eye out for wildlife. Autumn—which comes early in Alaska, in August and September—is a beautiful time to watch leaves turn bright gold.

How can I travel to Alaska for cheap?

November is an inexpensive month to travel to Alaska, and it’s a great time to dip your toes into an Alaskan winter. May is another affordable month for an Alaskan vacation as the frost thaws but the summer rush has not yet begun.

Travel cheaply by staying outside the big city in a town like Talkeetna, and booking a room in a guesthouse. Talkeetna Hideaway Guesthouse is cozy and convenient, and offers shared-bathroom options for the ultimate budget traveler. You can also save money on food by booking a room with a kitchenette. Aurora Denali Lodge has affordable rates, all the amenities you need, like a fridge, microwave, and café, and is just 20 minutes from Denali National Park, a haven for winter recreation.

Can I go to Alaska without a passport?

Americans can fly to Alaska from the continental US without a passport. If you’re driving the ALCAN (the Alaska-Canadian Highway), pack your passport for the segment of your journey that goes through Canada.

I liked the location and the front desk staff, they're very friendly and personable. They were quick to help when my key card stopped working. Can't think of anything I didn't like. I had noisy neighbors some nights but it's not fair to blame the hotel for the behavior of other guests.
