6 Essential Alaskan Experiences

From snow-capped mountains to sparkling rivers and charming villages, Alaska is a place that will amaze you and make its way right through your heart.

The 49th state, also the largest, is a land of abundant wildlife, rich history, and diverse culture. Complete with a breathtaking backdrop, Alaska is a perfect place to experience the unfiltered beauty of nature. Whether you’re kayaking, hiking, or sightseeing, An Alaskan holiday is sure to be one you’ll remember.

Northern lights 

The Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon that occurs when the sun’s electrically charged particles collide with our atmosphere, resulting in vivid streaks of colours whirling and dancing through the sky. Northern countries with high latitude are the most ideal place to see them, and Alaska is one of the few that can give you that experience. You can catch the spectacle during Alaska’s Northern Lights season, from September to April.

Glaciers 

Glaciers, also known as “rivers of ice,” are large masses of accumulated snow that deform and move at imperceptibly slow pace. With close to 100,00 glaciers, Alaska offers lots of opportunity to view these beautiful wonders from up close. They’re also often easily accessible – you can drive to Matanuska Glacier through Glenn highway for a D.I.Y. land excursion or book a tour at a natural park for an in-depth experience. Witness glacier calving and hear the thunderous sound of ice pieces breaking off and falling into the water, an unforgettable experience.

Scenic cruise 

From epic glaciers to wildlife sightings and kayaking through small towns, Alaska is a cruise destination for all types of adventurers. Not only will you encounter the open wilderness aboard a deluxe ship, cruising also offers plenty of off-shore activities and tours to enjoy in each destination. Whether you’re a solo traveller or going with the whole family, taking a cruise is guaranteed to be a highlight of your trip.

If hitting the road and taking your time is more your speed, you’ll be amazed by the stunning highways of Alaska. The roads are surrounded by a panorama of mountain ranges, lush fields, and gorgeous lakes.  From smooth, paved highways to wild, open road, the journey is just as rewarding as the destination. For an unfiltered travel experience set to your own pace, find a self-drive tour that fits your style.

Parks and Preserves

You can enjoy activities like camping, hiking, and kayaking in more than the 20 national parks of Alaska. It’s the prefect retreat for anyone who wants to disconnect while marvelling at the beauty of nature.

Wildlife 

There is no shortage of opportunities for wildlife spotting in the state of Alaska. Due to protections in place for the benefit of wildlife, the animals are quite safe in their natural habitat, away from human threats. You might see a giant moose crossing the road, pods of orcas swimming by the bay, or bears fishing down the stream. Alaska is home to an incredibly diverse range of species, from bald eagles to arctic foxes. If you want to learn more about the wildlife of Alaska and the best time for a viewing, there are packages that offer guided tours with local experts.
