The best month(s) to go to Alaska can vary depending on what your goals are. Most people think the best time to visit Alaska is during the summer months from mid-May to the end of September. July has historically been the month with the most tourists visiting the state. May, June, August, & September are less busy with travelers and have amazing opportunities for sightseeing and fishing. People also visit Alaska during the winter months to see the northern lights, ski, and play in the snow. November thru January are the least popular months to visit the state of Alaska because the hours of daylight are at their lowest.
The best Alaska trip really depends on what your individual group goals are. Some people travel to Alaska to fish only, sightsee only, or to do a combination of fishing and sightseeing. What you want to do determines when you should plan your visit to Alaska. Each fishing or sightseeing option has peak dates where you will have the best experience. Our job as trip planners at Alaska Silvertip Lodge and Cabins is to find out what your goals are and provide you with the best dates available for your trip. If you work with someone who has that mindset then the chances of you having a good trip are much better.
Depending on what you want to do, the amount of time you have, and the amount of money you want to spend there are many parts of Alaska that may be best to visit. The Kenai Peninsula is a great option for people traveling to Alaska because it offers a premium outdoor experience and is located in close proximity to Anchorage, a major city with an international airport. You can rent a car and be on the Kenai Peninsula in 1 hour. There are more than a handful of state and national parks. The fishing and sightseeing adventures are world class on the Kenai peninsula and it is known as Alaska’s Playground.
