Alaska Cruise & Land Tour Packages
We highly recommend travelers consider combining an Alaska cruise and land tour to get the most comprehensive wilderness experience by land and sea. There’s almost 7,000 miles of coastline to explore here afterall, and much is inaccessible by road. Alaska land-and-cruise adventures include everything Alaska has to offer from whale watching and glacier viewing to nature hikes and national parks. Most travelers will only visit once, and an Alaska cruise and land tour package ensures you get the most Alaska wilderness travel for your money.

The Seasonality of Alaska Travel
When is the best time to visit Alaska? 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.
