Alaska Seasons & Climate

The season for travel and outdoor exploration in Alaska is relatively short during the peak summer months of June, July and August, although May and September also similar weather but before and after the peak tourist months of summer. No matter when you go weather is unpredictable ranging from warm sunny days in the 70’s or even 80’s, to cold and rainy days in the 60’s. Always expect and be prepared for cold and rainy weather, but bask in the sun in shorts and t-shirt when the sky clears as it usually does on all trips for varied amounts of time. Due to its high latitude, Alaska offers endless summer days until 11 PM providing plenty of light for hikes, kayaking, wildlife viewing, and enjoying the scenery.
