11 Swimming Spots With The Clearest, Most Pristine Water In Alaska

As Alaska heats up in the coming months, take advantage of the few days you can actually say “it’s hot out” by heading to these excellent swimming spots. There are lakes, rivers, and the Pacific ocean on this list, but they are all places to swim in the cool, clear water and fresh air in the pristine natural places that we all love about the Alaska. So no matter how untouched your skin is by the sun’s rays, grab a swimsuit and a picnic (and some bug dope) and to head to the nearest spot for a summer escape.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
