Peak ( Jun - Aug )

Mid-June onward is when things start to get busy, all the way to mid-August, with long, glorious days of sparkling sunshine and short, brief nights. Wildlife comes out of its hiding-holes; it is the perfect time for Flightseeing the landscape, going on Bear Tours or sailing its gorgeous coastline and watching whales jumping in joy.

Shoulder ( May , Sep )

The Spring months of April and May are when sleepy animals emerge from hibernation and hungry for meals after the winter deprivation. Weather is a bit unpredictable, but expect plenty of warm sun-kissed days, with that delicious smell of fresh Tundra earth. Prices are much lower, and attractions are much easier to book. September sees sudden dips in temperature, and days shortening abruptly, but the colors make it worthwhile.

Low ( Oct - Apr )

At this latitude, everything pretty much freezes over. The all-nighters can get pretty bleak and everything will shut shop until spring, including the wildlife. This is however, the perfect time for the dance of the Northern Lights; head up to Fairbanks for the best viewings.
