Best Time to Visit Alaska

September 23rd, 2022 by aauadmin

The most common questions we hear from people hoping to travel to Alaska is when is the best time to visit Alaska? The Alaska summer season is a short window from the end of May to the beginning of September. In that time it is packed with baby animals, fishing, wild flowers, and adventures galore!

October – March

These are typically the colder, snowier months. You can experience some of our coldest temperatures during these months. It’s also the best time to try and see the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights because it’s typically clear and dark during this time. The Northern Lights are like the weather and often hard to predict so you will want to make sure you allow enough time to have a chance to see them. Typically we recommend four to seven days. Our Chalets give our guests a unique opportunity to sometimes see them from your front porch.

June in Alaska

June is filled with all the new baby animals and greenery sprouting every day! It is also the start of the salmon fishing season! June weather in Alaska typically gets warmer as the month progresses which also adds to the beauty of the landscape as the flowers start blooming creating a gorgeous tapestry along the mountains as you explore.

July in Alaska

July is the best time for salmon and halibut fishing. People come from all over the world to try their hand at catching some of the most delicious fish around. With the salmon come the bears! Katmai and Lake Clark are usually inundated with the large coastal brown bears getting their fill on their favorite treat. It is really a sight to see. Our wild flowers are in full bloom at this time and the purples and pinks of the fireweed flower have started to enhance the landscape even more. The sun is also out for almost 20 hours a day at this point so there is plenty of time for activities and enjoyment of the nature that surrounds you here.

August in Alaska

August sees a change in weather and landscape as the fireweed changes from pinks to purple and eventually cotton to signify that winter will soon be returning. This month is a great time to catch a glimpse of the larger animals getting ready for winter in Denali National Park. Down in Seward the marine wildlife are getting ready to migrate to warmer waters.

September in Alaska

September highlights our very short fall season. All the leaves change from green to a golden yellow with a fall breeze. The reds and oranges of the tundra moss line the hillsides in a variety of multi-colors. September is prime photography time for the fall colors. You may even have a chance at collecting wild blueberries or cranberries!

Alaska truly offers something incredible every month of the year. All you have to do is decide what you would like to see and experience.

  • So much better than a cruise!

    We had a fantastic time on the Discovery tour through AAU. I can’t tell how many times my husband and family said we were so glad our cruise got cancelled by Covid. This was sooo much better than the Alaskan cruise we had planned. Just 14 people in an incredibly comfortable large van. Everyone on the trip got along well even though most of us just met there. Suzanne was our driver and guide and she was the best!! Having lived in Alaska for much of her life, she had great things to share. Answered all our questions. Was patient with a couple of us who walk a little slower. Every detail was planned perfectly. Our accommodations comfortable. The special daily adventures were great and varied . We had a raft ride, two airboat rides and walking on a glacier. One airboat drove right among glaciers. Tour of a native village display and fur camping site, some chose extra plane trips and Dog sledding. We all enjoyed six hours out in the bay viewing wildlife to round out our trip… Some of us chose to ride on the Gold Star section of the Alaskan railroad which includes a meal and has a glass dome. Well worth the extra money. Our train went from Anchorage to Seward. In Seward we took an incredible wildlife viewing boat seeing several whales, sea lions, puffins, seals, sea otter, and right up close to a huge glacier. Another interesting thing some of us chose was to see the sled dogs and ride on a wagon pulled by the dogs. I feel like the 10 days planned by this company, provided such a great composite of what Alaska is like. Their choice of restaurants and accommodations were great. Every detail planned out ahead of time. We added a day before and a day after in Anchorage just to relax and not feel so hurried. I highly recommend Alaska Adventure Unlimited!

  • A Grand Trip that Promised Many Things and Delivered on them ALL!

    We just completed an eight day deluxe adventure trip with Alaska Adventure Unlimited this past June 2022. It was a family trip with two grandparents, two parents and three grandchildren (Ages 9, 12 and 14). The trip exceeded our expectations in so many ways. Our tour guide, Lyle, was professional, personable, knowledgeable and fun to travel with. All of the transitions and appointments went off seamlessly and on time. We also really appreciated the staff of Erica and Melissa for making this all come together and for quickly answering all of our questions. The hotel accommodations were first class as were the dining arrangements. Our favorite parts of the adventure were the Knik Glacier, the cruise of Resurrection Bay, the Flightseeing over Denali, and traveling on the Gold Star Alaska Railway. We saw black bears (3), moose (12+), humpback whales, orcas, eagles, sea lions, seals, otters, caribou, and a large cat in Talkeetna who some call the mayor. Our modes of transportation included; a jet boat, small airplane to cross Mt. Denali, comfortable mini bus, river rafts, kayaks, pontoon boat, cruise boat, train, tour bus in Denali, limo, a twelve dog sled ride, and a five-ton U.S. army truck to ford a river. We all officially love Alaska and the Alaskan Adventure Unlimited staff.

  • Can’t say enough about this tour company and experience. Our tour guide (Dorothy) was incredible – knowledgeable, friendly, and thoughtful with every detail. AAU seamlessly coordinated every aspect of our trip. All we had to do was choose our activities and show up! Nothing was left to chance, and plans were reworked when necessity called. The tour company offered so many different types of active adventure activities (white water rafting, zip lining, ATV riding, river boating, glacier hiking, flying etc) and was so customizable to fit our needs. Alaska is an amazing place, and I am so glad we chose to go with AAU. We hope to be back again to explore some more!

  • We enjoyed the BEST OF ALASKA 8 day tour and the experience was outstanding. Every day was better than the day before. The tour ran like clockwork and our guide Dorothy was in a class by herself. She was enthusiastic, informative, and friendly. She became like family. It was easy to see she loved her state and was genuinely excited to share her stories with us. The Whitewater and Glacier Run floats were energizing and beautiful. The Mat-Su Glacier Park was interesting and we loved exploring the glacier as Dorothy skillfully guided us through the ever- changing ice fields. Our Flightseeing and Glacier Landing was rained out and Dorothy managed to rearrange our itinerary so we could enjoy that magical time on a later day. Customized service was at the forefront of this experience. Dorothy made extra coffee/latte stops as we crisscrossed the region. She made the trip special for our family. As a special surprise during our last meal together, Dorothy bought a large cheesecake and the group celebrated my father-in-law’s 90th birthday. It was the perfect touch to an unforgettable week of breathtaking vistas and once-in-a -lifetime experiences. As our millennial children shared with us as they returned from the helicopter ride and glacier dog sled tour with grandpa (the 90 year old birthday boy), ‘THIS WAS THE BEST VACATION EVER’! Thank you for giving this gift of family time.

  • We had never done a multi day tour before. The Grand Discovery Alaska trip with Alaska Adventures Unlimited was hands down the best bucket list experience. We had a fantastic time. Jamie was an excellent guide and driver. Very personable. Lots of great tips. He timed everything perfectly! We will recommend this tour to all our friends. I recommend doing all the extra add ons. If you don’t you will wish you had:). We added the rafting tour, landed on glacier at Denali, dog sledding on glacier, katmai bear watching all day experience and salmon fishing.

Top 5 Reasons to Visit Alaska

June 21st, 2022 by aauadmin

Alaska was recently listed as one of the best places to travel in the US in 2022 and we could not agree more! We love sharing our special slice of paradise with those from around the world. Every day brings a new adventure whether it is the landscapes, wildlife, or weather. Alaska is a place that you have to see to experience.

Glacier jetboat ride with smiling passengers
Our tours take you across our great state and give you the chance to connect with local Alaskans and experience our way of life in the summer. You have the opportunity to raft, kayak, flightsee, dog sled, salmon or halibut fish! On our tours, you will do more in your time here than most Alaskan’s have time to experience!

Here are our top 5 reasons to visit Alaska:

1. Wildlife: In Alaska we have the chance to see wildlife of all kinds. Moose, bears, wolves, Dall sheep, caribou, a plethora of marine mammals and wild birds are often spotted. You never know what you might encounter. There’s even a chance to play with some of our more domesticated friends: the huskies!

12 brown bears at Brook's Falls in Katmai National Park fishing for Alaska salmon

2. Glaciers: We have over 100,000 glaciers. On our tours we give you the chance to walk, boat and fly by ice fields, valley glaciers, hanging glaciers, and tidewater glaciers.

3. Scenery: Mountains, glaciers, valleys, ever changing wildflowers,  and ocean views are just some of the majestic sights you will see as you travel across the Great Land. You will be mesmerized by the tall snow capped peaks and lush green foliage. When the fireweed starts to bloom miles of pink & purple flowers paint the landscape.

4. All Ages Adventure: There is a little something for everyone. We continually have groups of friends, families, and solo travelers exploring the Last Frontier with us. Seeing the landscape from the eyes of a child or checking off a dream vacation on your 80th birthday, Alaska leaves a little bit of awe in everyone’s minds.

Two friends smiling next to a stack of blue rafts

5. The Midnight Sun: It never truly gets dark here in the summer. Which means plenty of opportunity to explore, spot wildlife or just enjoy the peace and tranquility.

  • “My husband and I went on the 10 day tour with AAU.  From the time we made our reservations and chose our options, the office staff, Erica and Corky, were always there to answer our questions and keep us informed.  We arrived at the Embassy Suite and were picked up the next day for our trip to begin. We traveled with 11 other folks that were so compatible. We had so much laughter. The vehicle we traveled in was top of the line with large windows for viewing the sights as we traveled to each destination. Our guide often spotted wildlife and would stop safely so we could observe and take pictures. Our guide, “Will”, a resident of AK was just the BEST. Knowledgeable, funny and patient. He helped one traveler who had some difficulty walking on the Glacier but with his help she was able to go all the way out and back being reassured and assisted the whole way.  Accommodations and food were great. We did rafting, kayaking, flightseeing, train, cruise on the Kenai (my favorite) landed on a glacier, airboat and jet boat to the Knik Glacier, and Bear Viewing. All the guides we had on those trips were great too.  We look forward to returning to AK for another adventure. THANKS AAU for a wonderful experience.”  Susie & Max, California 
  • “Thank you AAU for an amazing Discovery vacation tour!  Everything from the start of the process at booking to the finish of the trip was perfect!  Our guide Monty, was wonderful & made us feel like we were part of his family.  Anything we or the rest of the group needed was taken care of.  Even after we were on our own, Ms. Erica took care of us when our vouchers went missing, and faxed them to our cabin. The weather was amazing and we were left speechless at the beauty of Alaska.  We are already planning a trip back in the near future!  Thank you so much for the experience of a life time!!”  Sandie & Jim, Florida
  • “I just wanted to say a special thank you for helping us plan and enjoy our Alaska trip with AAU!!  It was a wonderful place to experience, even with my dad’s deteriorating health.  You made me feel better with all the arrangement and in giving me all the emergency contact information while I was away and Terry, our wonderful tour guide was a very interesting/knowledgeable person to spend a week with.  We traveled with very nice families and enjoyed our time.  Terry was so nice and diplomatic in both helping the handle any situation while helping us all receive what we wanted.  He is a wonderful guide and we would travel with him again.  Thanks again for the wonderful memories!!” Nancy & Neil, California
  • “I wanted to tell you that I had such a great trip on the 8 Day Best of Alaska 7/14-7/21 trip.  Best of Alaska it was!  We all loved our guide, Dwight.  And our group of 14 all got along so well.  We are staying in touch exchanging pictures.  Also, all of the tours you arranged for us (white water rafting, flight-seeing, air boat tour, train ride, fjords tour, sea kayaking, dog sled riding) – all of those folks were top-notch.  And so were all of the accommodations along the way.  Even the weather cooperated for the most part.  I have ZERO complaints and only high praise.  I will be sure to recommend you to my friends.  Everyone I know does a cruise to Alaska – but I think my photos and fun stories are making my friends re-think whether a cruise is really the best way to go.  We did SO much more and saw SO much more than people do on a cruise.  I’m so glad we did the trip and you all made it an excellent experience.  I hope our paths cross again some day.  Thank you again for some wonderful memories.”  Susan & Patricia, Texas
  • “We just got done with our tour of AK and I just wanted to let you know that it was really wonderful! We enjoyed ourselves immensely! Thanks a lot for all you did in arranging this tour. We had an amazing Alaska experience and we are really glad we chose to come here for our honeymoon/anniversary! Our tour guide Monty was the best! He was very friendly and informative and he kept the bus nice and clean for us. At first he was our tour guide and at the end he was our friend! He was also very helpful with everything and had everything down pat. Thanks again for everything! God bless.”  Jesse & Lauri, Ohio
  • “We have just returned home from our fabulous Alaska holiday. Thank you very much for your excellent arrangements and recommendations. Every thing was superb. Our land tour guide, was excellent!  You and your colleagues have made Alaska one of our most memorable trips. Thank you!”  Michelle, Hong Kong
  • “My husband and I felt the Alaska experience we had with Alaska Adventure Unlimited was the dream trip we had hoped it would be. From the initial information gathering phone call until we were dropped at the Anchorage airport to begin our journey home, everything went perfectly. The small group we traveled with soon became a cohesive body and we shared many exciting and hilarious times together. “Ki”, our guide, was phenomenal and never shown us anything but patience and command of every situation. Thank you for this indescribable experience.” Marilynn & Ernie
  • “Alaska Adventure Unlimited made our Alaska Summer Vacation the most amazing and wonderful experience! Our tour guide, “Dwight” was the main reason for our very fun and informative adventures. The small group tour allowed us to see more of Alaska and move faster from place to place. We made amazing new friends for life and would encourage everyone to make their Alaska Vacation dream come true with Alaska Adventure Unlimited. Thanks for the vacation of a life time!” Sherri
  • “Our trip with AAU was fantastic — It far exceeded our expectations! Our guide was so knowledgeable about the area and the people. Every detail for each day was planned perfectly, with no hiccups along the way. We have already recommended the tour to others, and are already planning our next trip to Alaska!” Linda
  • “The AAU Discovery of Alaska tour was fantastic. We hated to leave when it was over. Our tour Guide was outstanding- very knowledgeable, caring, flexible, and dedicated to making our tour the best it could be. The activities were all they were billed to be, and the small group size made everything doable. We left with wonderful memories of Alaska and our tour.” Carl
  • “Alaskan Adventures Unlimited gave us the trip of a lifetime. From start to finish every thing we did centered around our interests. The smaller size of the tour made it easy to accommodate everyone. The guide was extremely informational and very willing to make all our dreams come true. We can’t think of a thing we change.” Rose Ann
  • “It was truly a great trip which we’ll be talking about for years. I wish more of our grandkids had opted to go; but this size bunch was about right. We also thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to travel with the two other families and share the experiences with them. It was nice that the kids had peers to talk to instead of always to parents/g-parents. Thanks again.” Lynn
  • “Thanks for an EXCELLENT adventure! Everything – from booking to the completion of the trip – was first rate. We were reluctant to take a tour, but this was a great choice and exceeded our expectations.” Nancy 
  • “Dwight was an amazing guide whose talent for sharing Alaska is just amazing – he really made the trip personal for each of us, shared his history of Alaska as well as its history – was available 24/7 and was one of the best tour guides we have encountered and we have traveled a lot. Your gift to us was unexpected but is one of the items I cherish the most.I loved everything about the trip – the chalet was spectacular and no one really believes what we accomplished in 8 short days!! Thank you so much.” Alice & Ida Jean

Wildlife, Waves, and Wilderness on a Kenai Fjords National Park Tour!

June 16th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

Kenai Fjords National Park tour

Get set for awesome sights like this on your Kenai Fjords National Park tour!

There are endless things to see and do on an Alaskan vacation. One attraction that has a LOT of what people come to Alaska for – wilderness, wildlife, glaciers – is Kenai Fjords National Park!

Kenai Fjords National Park is 1,000 square miles of some of the most impenetrable and gorgeous wilderness in Alaska. Kenai Fjords is on the southern coast of the Kenai Peninsula. The park was named for the many fjords that were carved by glaciers sliding down the mountains into the sea.

The park was initially established as a National Monument in 1978, then a National Park in 1980. Its borders encircle the Harding Icefield, one of the world’s largest icefields and the park’s crowning feature. Many come just to see this 936-square-mile icefield and thrill at the sight of a calving glacier. You will too. It’s not everyday you get to see the birth of an iceberg!

There’s nothing quite like seeing an Alaskan brown bear in its natural habitat. Seeing them in zoos and photos can be fascinating and fun but it just isn’t quite the same as seeing them in person in their natural environment.

Even if you’ve never touched a paddle before, you’ll find the experience smooth and soothing. Kayaks slice quietly through the waves, leaving you able to approach more closely to marine life without disturbing them.

The sea kayak tour offered by Alaska Adventure Unlimited is an optional exploration of Resurrection Bay. Depending on the time of year you go, you may have the opportunity to see lots of wildlife, including otters, eagles, salmon, sea lions, maybe even bears!
