Travel Tips

Absolutely! Visiting Anchorage, Seward, and Juneau which are truly Alaskan cities will be an experience of a lifetime. Here are a few travel tips for you:

Best Time to Visit:
The best time to visit these Alaskan cities for optimal weather is between May and September. This is also when the wildlife is most active.

Route and Accessibility:
Anchorage is easily accessible via air, with flights from across the world landing at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. Both Seward and Juneau can be reached from Anchorage by road, sea or small plane. The Alaska Marine Highway is a popular way to get to Juneau, which is not connected to the rest of Alaska by road.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
At sea level, neither of these cities requires any special acclimatization. However, if you plan to go hiking or skiing in the surrounding mountainous areas, make sure to stay hydrated and take your time to acclimate to the higher elevations.

Accommodation and Booking:
Accommodations range from luxury hotels to cozy lodges and campsites. Be sure to book in advance, especially during the peak tourist season (spring and summer) as places can fill up quickly.

Clothing and Essentials:
Dress in layers to adapt to the varying temperatures throughout the day. Even in the summer, bring a waterproof jacket and sturdy shoes as it tends to rain unpredictably. Sunscreen and bug spray are essential.

Health and Safety:
Watch out for wildlife, especially when hiking or camping - remember you're in bear country. Follow local guidelines and don’t feed or approach the animals. Make sure to carry a first-aid kit with you.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Always respect the local customs and traditions. Do not litter and try to leave no trace when hiking or camping. Pay attention to public lands boundaries and private property signs if travelling off-road.
