Best Time to Visit
For long days and good weather, the best time to visit Alaska is during the months of May to September. The summer season is the optimal time for embarking on Alaska wildlife holidays as it offers the best opportunities to witness bears, otters, whales, seals, salmon, goats, and moose. This time of year is also ideal for outdoor activities such as flightseeing, float plane rides, hiking and glacier trekking.
