Summer in Alaska is glorious. This is the prime season to view the wonders that earned the state the title of America’s last frontier.
Fly over temperate rainforests thick with spruce and cedar trees, walk on centuries-old glaciers, sail finger-like fjords, and go dog-sledding on a glacier. Watch brown bears swipe at salmon, eagles swoop low over the horizon, and humpback whales breach.
Along with natural wonders, discover the region’s rich heritage. Learn about the traditions and art of the Tlingit and Haida Native American peoples. Trace the grueling path of the gold rush seekers.
With 19 hours of daylight in June and July, there’s plenty of time to explore and admire the stunning scenery.
