Make a self catering cabin or holiday rental in Alaska your home away from home

Alaska, the largest US state, offers a unique holiday experience with modern cities, dramatic scenery, exciting activities and spectacular wildlife sightings.

Things to Do in Alaska

Wildlife watching is one of the main things to do from your holiday rental in Alaska. Expect to see otters, puffins, sea lions, humpback and orca whales, harbour seals, grizzly and black bears, moose, elk, caribou and a host of birds. Go hiking, cycling, canoeing and rafting or take a scenic drive or a rail excursion and enjoy the spectacular scenery. Fishing is a popular sport in Alaska with superb salmon and trout fishing in season and excellent opportunities to join a halibut fishing excursion. Take a helicopter trip and land on a glacier, go dog sledding on Norris Glacier with your own team of huskies, go moose spotting on a charter flight, ride the Eagle River in a jetboat, go horseback riding through the Kenai Wildlife Refuge and witness glaciers calving with a mighty crack into the fjords.

Places to Visit Around Alaska

Highlights to visit in Alaska include Glacier Bay and the Kenai Fjords National Park, the small town of Ketchikan with its waterfront shops, totem poles and museums. By contrast, Anchorage is a modern city surrounded by the stunning Chugach Mountains. Go shopping in the morning and visit the huge Knik Glacier in the afternoon. See amazing wildlife in Denali National Park and Preserve, explore Prince William Sound and the Columbia Glacier or take a boat trip through the breathtaking Inside Passage from your cosy Alaska holiday rental.
