Timing Your Alaska Vacation

When is the best time to visit Alaska? While you can book an Alaska vacation year-round, Alaska’s best weather, and main season for tourism, is May through September. During this time, Alaska travelers enjoy warmer temperatures, long days with late sunsets and accessible wildlife. But if seeing the Northern Lights or fishing trips are your goal, then you’ll want to consider your timing further. Note the climate data listed above is for Anchorage, Alaska. Keep reading for statewide Alaska climate tables, including Southeast coastal and Interior microclimates to consider when planning your Alaskan trip.
