Alaska boasts the highest mountains, the most glaciers, and the biggest moose… good thing it also has the most hours of summer daylight in the United States. With over 3,000 rivers, 3 million lakes, and 6,600 miles of coastline, you’ll be thankful for every bit of sunlight illuminating this last frontier.
The Last Frontier
With national parks bigger than some countries and icebergs taller than skyscrapers, Alaska certainly doesn’t do things by half measure.
The 49th State almost feels like another planet with its towering snow-capped mountains, wild coastal plains and glacier-rimmed fjords.

WHEN TO VISIT
What are the four seasons in Alaska? Answer: Winter, June, July, and August. Ok not completely… May and September can also be great, but bear-viewing and fishing are best in July and August.
