Booking flights to Alaska remain a mystery for some, but those who do book Alaska flights and venture to “The Last Frontier” catch a glimpse of the nation’s most beautiful landscapes, engaging wildlife and natural habitats, and a more simplistic way of living.

If you love to fly you’re in luck! One of the best ways to see the country is to board a prop-plane and buy airline tickets to see remote villages, fishing sites and just about anywhere else you want to go. You can also get to Alaska via train or bus, but the fares are more expensive. Major airline carriers book flights to Alaska’s hub, Anchorage, and from there travelers can book other Alaska flights to various parts of the country.

You don’t have to be adventurous or outdoorsy to book a flight to Alaska. But, most people who have been to Alaska agree that a visit is in order to understand its greatness. Consider this statistic: the state of Rhode Island could fit into Alaska 425 times. Alaska is called American’s “Last Frontier” for a reason. Book flights to Alaska with an open mind, and let the country captivate you with its simplicity and its beauty.

What are some things to do in Alaska?

Called America’s “”Last Frontier””, Alaska has a scenic landscape filled with natural beauty and wildlife. There are five regions of Alaska to visit, the Arctic, the Inside Passage, the Interior, Southcentral, and the Southwest. Each area provides you with plenty of things to do, from eco-tours and dog sledding to bear viewing and freshwater fishing. When in Anchorage, you can hike Flattop Mountain, ski during the winter months, check out the H2Oasis Waterpark, visit the Alaska Native Heritage Center, and much more. You may also want to travel around the state and take a flight from Anchorage to Fairbanks where you can gaze at the Aurora Borealis, as well as a pan for gold and take a riverboat cruise. Another popular place to visit in Alaska is Juneau, where there are numerous hiking trails, whale watching, and flightseeing tours, the Tongass National Forest, and the Mendenhall Glacier.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Alaska?

You do not need a passport or a visa to fly to Alaska if you are a citizen of the USA and are flying in from another state. However, all non-citizens of the USA will need a passport to enter Alaska, but may not need a tourist visa to enter if coming from one of the 38 countries that are part of the Visa Waiver Program.

What is the climate like in Alaska?

Given the enormous size of Alaska and its location, the weather varies greatly depending on where your Alaska flight takes you. Some places go into the 80s (F) and 90s in summer, others make it into the 30s. Along the southern coast winter temperatures are in the 20s, while farther north they drop to -50 and lower. The southern areas have well-defined four seasons and northern areas have winter and summer. The northern coast has the most dramatic change in daylight hours. In Barrow, the sun sets at 12.50pm on November 18 and rises at 11.51am on January 24. By 1.06am on May 10 there is 24-hour daylight.  Alaskan weather is famously unpredictable; a snow storm on July 4 followed by a hot July 5 is not out of character.
