Trip Ideas

We'll show you how long you'll want to spend, how to get around, and activities in top destinations you don't want to miss.

Alaska is big, and planning a vacation can be overwhelming. We know from years of experience that the hardest part of planning an Alaska vacation is putting it all together. How long should you stay? What should you see? How do you get around?

Our goal is to empower you to plan your own Alaska vacation, by providing sample itineraries that answer each of those questions. We created them to offer inspiration as well as logistical information, so you can choose what you like and book your own Alaska vacation. You’ll find links to activities and lodges we recommend, as well as other highlights.

Note: If you're not keen on planning on your own, here's where you can work with a local itinerary expert to book a self-drive or railroad vacation package. Or fill out our contact form to receive a customized itinerary from a local itinerary specialist.
