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.

Weather in Alaska

Alaska holiday rentals experience a range of climates from oceanic to subarctic as it covers such a vast area. Average temperatures range from -60°F (-51°C) in winter to occasional highs of 90°F (32°C) in July. The panhandle, bordering British Columbia, is the warmest and wettest region and frequently has daytime highs above freezing even in winter. Juneau has around 50 inches of rainfall while other areas have up to 275 inches. Anchorage is mild, being beside the ocean, but still sees 75 inches of snowfall and has a very brief summer. The south central area has much more snow. Further inland the climate is arctic with permanent ice and freezing temperatures while the west has subarctic temperatures and more precipitation.

Travel to Alaska

The main airport serving holiday rentals in Alaska is the Ted Stevens Anchorage International (ANC ) Airport which is the largest and busiest in the state. Fairbanks (FAI) Airport is the main transportation hub in the interior which also receives flights from all over the world. Juneau is Alaska’s capital city, located on the Inside Passage and has an international airport (JNU). Alaska Airlines serves all these airports with flights taking around 2½ hours from Seattle to Juneau and up to 4 hours to Anchorage and Fairbanks. There is also a jet service from Seattle to Ketchikan. Many visitors arrive in Alaska by cruise boat and combine a holiday in an Alaska holiday rentals with an Alaskan cruise.
