Alaska, the United States’ northernmost state, offers many attractions to travelers, especially outdoor enthusiasts. If you’re thinking about taking a trip to Alaska, you might want to take a number of factors into consideration while deciding when to visit. First of all, tourist season in Alaska is from mid-May to mid-September, and most tours operate during these months. This is the time of year when the days are longest, as well, and the sky stays bright most of the night. Summer also offers pleasant temperatures, with daytime highs between 60 and 80 degrees. The early summer is also slightly less rainy, with the chance of rain increasing as the summer goes on.

All in all, experts suggest that visitors plan a trip to Alaska between June 15 and July 15. However, if you go in the off-season, you might save on hotel and airfare.
