Alaska: Beyond Your Dreams, Within Your Reach

If Alaska is on your bucket list, there's no better time than the present to start planning. From the vast, untamed wilderness and wildlife, to the picturesque mountains and glaciers, Alaska is unlike any other destination in America. Discover Alaska with AAA Travel and let our travel experts plan your trip of a lifetime. Take a cruise or a cruise tour; the choice is yours. With so much to do and see, you won't want to miss a thing.

The best time to visit Alaska is probably between May and September when the days are long and nature is in full bloom. Average temperatures during the late spring and summer months can range from 60 to 80 degrees during the day and dip into the 40's and 50's at night. Depending on which regions you visit, temperatures can vary widely. It's best to dress in layers so you can stay warm and dry when it gets chilly or rains.

 

On the Alaska Discovery Tour, AAA Travel combines the best of both land and sea.
