Visitors often ask: When is the best month to visit Alaska? You can’t go wrong visiting Alaska anytime between May 10 and September 15. The days are long, nature is in full bloom, and the air is alive with energy.
une 21 is the longest day of the year, with 19 hours of daylight in Anchorage, 22 in Fairbanks, and 18 in Southeast. But from early May through September, days are considerably longer than at lower latitudes.
Alaska’s sky is light nearly all night long from late May to late July (unless you’re out and about at 3am). And it’s light past 10pm for another month on either side of that. Use our Alaska daylight calculator to find out when the sun will set during your trip.
