The Seasonality of Alaska Travel
Summer is the premier time to travel by land in Alaska. Summer days are long, with 20 hours of sunlight on summer solstice (June 21), so this core travel season is packed full for wildlife and visitors alike. Keep in mind that the season is short in Alaska’s interior, and thus Denali National Park is only open to visitors from early June through mid-September. The climate data listed above is for Anchorage, Alaska, but there are Southeast coastal and Interior microclimates to consider depending on where you travel.
