Alaska

Alaska is bigger than Texas, California and Montana combined. Also known as the Last Frontier, Alaska is one of the last unspoiled and most uninhabited regions of the world. Known for its breathtaking natural beauty and abundant wildlife, Alaska is on almost everyone’s “Bucket List.”

You will experience the Midnight Sun in the summer and may even see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) between late August and early April. Fairbanks is often cited as the best place to see the northern lights in the United States, but it is possible to see them on dark, clear nights in lower Alaska.

Because of its vast open spaces, variety of terrains, and the diverse activities available, Alaska is an ideal destination for Arrow Discovery Travel to create an itinerary custom-made to serve your particular interests.

Now that you are wondering where your Parka is, you can start thinking about what modes of transportation will be best to connect you to the different regions of Alaska. You can choose one or more likely, a mix of transportation options.

Transportation

Train – The Alaska Railroad connects many of the most popular spots in Alaska. There are many rail packages that combine the different routes to include a wide variety of authentic Alaskan experiences. You can choose a rail package for your entire trip or travel by rail for one or more segments of your trip.

Motor Coach – There are a series of small bus companies that can get you to most of the highlights. The Alaska Park Connection Motor Coach offers summer service to and between the most popular National Parks.

Drive – You can rent an RV (motorhome) or a car, and drive between all or some destinations. Keep in mind that the distances are vast, so you may elect to just drive some routes where you want the flexibility to stop along the way.

Fly – Often airplanes are the most efficient way to travel between communities. Jet service is available from many cities in Alaska and small regional carriers serve hundreds of other areas. There are some remote wilderness resorts and fishing lodges that can only be reached by air-taxi or small boat.

Accommodations

Alaska offers a wide variety of accommodations. Because of the short tourist season, availability is often limited, so it helps to be flexible with your travel dates and the order of your itinerary.
