Summer has come and gone, fall is quickly leaving, but there are still plenty of fun things to do during your winter Alaska adventure. We at ABC Motorhome would like to give you some insider tips on how to get the most out of the unique opportunities that winter travel provides.
When to Come
The timing of your trip to Alaska will depend on what activities you are most interested in.
What to Do
There are still plenty of outdoor activity options for winter visitors in Alaska. Some include:
During the winter there are fewer people and more solitude giving travelers a unique chance to experience the Alaskan wilderness.
Temperatures and Darkness
In southcentral Alaska (Anchorage and neighboring communities), winter temps average around 20 degrees, with below zero days occasionally. Farther north, in the Fairbanks area, the weather is more extreme with temps dipping to negative 20 quite regularly. Bring plenty of layers and appropriate outerwear and you will be fully equipped to enjoy every day. Depending on what part of the state you are in, you can expect 6-12 hours of daylight. The further north you go, the lower on that range you’ll be.
While some locations are not open during the winter, some will offer fantastic deals for the hearty souls that try the joys of the season. Some outdoor activities, like ice skating and cross country skiing are virtually free.
