Wow, Alaska is simply an incredible State to visit. You’re going to have an amazing time.

The best time to visit Alaska is in the late spring to early autumn. The temperatures aren’t hot but comfortably rest around the high teens. So, bring a light jacket and you’ll be perfectly dressed.

If you’re looking to visit by cruise to Alaska, the season starts in May and ends in September. Cruising is one of the most popular ways to visit Alaska.

If you’re not visiting on a cruise, it can be worth avoiding the cruise port areas on ship days as they become very busy with thousands of passengers on a strict time limit… so manners and patience can sometimes be forgotten in the rush to experience everything in a day.

The driest months are May to June, whereas it becomes much wetter in August and September. If you’re planning to spend a lot of time outside, and you’ve every reason to be in Alaska, then I’d prioritize the peak months of May or June.

However, tempting discounts are always available if you’re happy to forgo the “best” weather and book a trip in the shoulder seasons on either side of the peak summer run.
