Alaska remains a mystery to many people in North America, but those who do venture to “The Last Frontier” catch a glimpse of the nation’s most beautiful landscapes, engaging wildlife and natural habitats, and a more simplistic way of living.

If you love to fly you’re in luck. One of the best ways to see the country is to board a prop-plane and take Alaska flights to remote villages, fishing sites and just about anywhere else you want to go. You can also get to Alaska via ship, train or bus, but the fares are more expensive. Major airline carriers book flights to Alaska’s hub, Anchorage, and from there travellers can book other Alaska flights to various parts of the country.

You don’t have to be adventurous or outdoorsy to visit Alaska. But, most people who have been to Alaska agree that a visit is in order to understand its greatness. Alaska is called American’s “Last Frontier” for a reason. Book flights to Alaska with an open mind, and let the country captivate you with its simplicity and its beauty.

Alaska climate

Given the enormous size of Alaska and its location, the weather varies greatly depending on where your flight takes you. Some places go into the mid-20s (Celsius) and 30s in summer, others make it into the 30s. Along the southern coast winter temperatures are in low single digits, while farther north they drop to -50 and lower. The southern areas have well-defined four seasons and northern areas have winter and summer. The northern coast has the most dramatic change in daylight hours. In Barrow, the sun sets at 12.50pm on November 18 and rises at 11.51am on January 24. By 1.06am on May 10 there is 24-hour daylight. Alaskan weather is famously unpredictable; a snow storm on July 4 followed by a hot July 5 is not out of character.

Getting around Alaska

Alaska is huge. If you cut it in half, you would still have the two largest states in the US. RVs are a popular mode of transportation through the state, and Alaskan cities are fairly easy to drive in and park; the exception is parking an RV in downtown Anchorage during the week. All sorts of vehicles travel the Alaska Highway, which is open year-round and is paved for all but a few miles.

Other popular ways to get around Alaska are by water and by air; in fact, the only way to many towns, including Juneau, is via air or water. Many cruise lines offer tours of Alaska, and state-owned ferries can get you from one point to another. Another option is to travel through Alaska by rail, bush plane, air taxi, or helicopter. Taking a commercial flight between destinations is often the best, and cheapest, mode of transportation. Alaska has several regional airports that make flying around the state straightforward.
