We think every month is the best month to visit Alaska!
February and March are great for watching dogsled races and winter festivals, while whales start appearing in Alaska waters in April and May. June through August are the most popular months to see the land of the Midnight Sun, while shorter days late-August through April are the best times to see the northern lights. Travelers can often find discounts on tours and lodging during the spring and fall shoulder seasons, which are great times to experience Alaska like the locals. Check out our activity guide for inspiration by season and region. Whatever the time of year – Alaska is waiting for you!
