Wonders Of The World In Alaska

June 11, 2020

When is the best time of year to travel to Alaska?

Summer time is the time of year that most people travel to Alaska. With long, sunny days, and all manner of wildlife out and about, many people prefer to see this state in its summer glory. Restaurants, tour operators, and cruise ships all open bookings for the summer month. But if you’re a cold weather fan and love the snow, alpenglow, and northern lights, there is still plenty to see in the winter time! Prices are lower and the activities you’ll experience will change, but many locals make the argument that you’re seeing the “true Alaska” when you visit during the winter months.

Can I go for a train ride in Alaska?

Yes! The Alaska Railroad runs their passenger trains all year long. During the summer you’ll find many more routes open and traveling at a greater frequency. You can head to Fairbanks, Seward, Whittier, and all the wonderful places in between on the railroad lines. There are even some flag stops that you can get off at to explore backcountry locations in Alaska. During the winter they still offer passenger train cars on the Aurora Train, a wonderful route highlighting beautiful winter vacation stops in Alaska. Head to Alaska Railroad’s website for more information and booking reservations.
