summer in alaska


1. BEST WEATHER
For over 47 years our records and comments from tens of thousands of happy travelers indicate that the very best experiences occur in May and June. Most people are not aware that coastal Alaska is a rain forest. May and June have the least amount of rain to obscure the breathtaking views of the mountains. Temperatures in May are only 6 degrees cooler than June on average.

2. SEE FAR MORE WILDLIFE
In May and early June, the animals graze in the lowland on the coast because the mountaintops are still covered with snow. As that snow melts, clouds form to obscure your beautiful views and the wildlife begin to move up the mountains to graze. Also, sightings of seals and whales are at their peak in early spring. Seals are bearing their new pups and whales are feeding and migrating, so your chances of seeing them are much greater.

3. BETTER VIEWS OF SCENERY
Spring is the best time to see the snow-capped peaks. Melting snow forms clouds which obscure your view of the majestic, snow covered mountains, the most stunning of all is America’s tallest peak Mt. McKinley.

4. BEST VALUE BY FAR
You absolutely receive the BEST VALUE in the SPRINGTIME! Savings can run as much as $2,400 per cabin over peak season departures! Higher pricing in July and August has nothing to do with weather, but rather families who travel with children while they are not in school, consequently the demand and the pricing is higher.
