Alaska 8 Day Trip Ideas

8-Day Alaska Trip Ideas

If you can take 8 days for your Alaska vacation, you’ll have no problem seeing the state’s can’t-miss highlights—and you’ll even have time to wander off the beaten path a little!

The extra time will give you a broader picture of this incredible state and makes for an even more unforgettable experience. You’ll see the ever-popular Denali and Kenai Fjords national parks; you can also take a unique excursion up above the Arctic Circle, or go explore Alaska’s largest national park—Wrangell-St. Elias!

*Note: These sample itineraries 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. To book a package, check out this section.
