We've landed! Well...launched actually.

For well over a year we've been working behind the scenes on the website of our dreams. It needed to capture the experience of traveling in Alaska, be full of helpful travel advice, and above all be an indispensable tool to help you plan the Alaska vacation of your dreams.

The new AlaskaTravel.com is designed for everyone, whether you're just beginning to research an Alaska trip or ready to book it. These are some of our favorite new site elements.

Travel Finder Tools

Alaska travel planning can be overwhelming, so we've built several finder tools to help you discover and narrow down your options. They cover complete travel packages all the way down to individual hotels and activities.

  • Alaska Trip Finder. Search for complete travel packages based on trip length, how you want to travel, where to start and end your trip, and your must-visit destinations. Although you could book an entire package as as-is, we specialize in custom vacations planned just for you.
  • Alaska Lodging Finder. Search by destination and dates, then browse from available options in the area.
  • Alaska Activity Finder. Is bear viewing on your bucket list? Do you want to explore above the Arctic Circle? Use this tool to discover all available activities based on type, destination, and date.
  • Transportation Finder. Want to know how to get from Anchorage to Denali, or from Denali to an awaiting cruise in Seward? This finder shows you transportation options as well as availability.
  • Alaska Cruise Finder. Yep, we even have a cruise finder! You can narrow down options based on preferred cruise line, route, sailing date, and trip length. When you've found something you like, request a quote with just a few clicks.

Live Rates and Availability

Many of the hotels and tours we offer can be booked and confirmed online using My Trip. To support this functionality, our site also shows live rates and availability. Even when a product comes up as limited or no availability, contact us. We may be able to request space or find you good alternatives.

Just looking to reserve transportation? Our Train & Bus Express Checkout makes it simple to book tickets on the Alaska Railroad, Park Connection Motorcoach, and/or specialty train service.

We're known as the Alaska Travel Experts, and all that expertise is laid out on our travel tips pages. You'll find special advice pages under Transportation and Cruises, as well as a general Alaska travel tips under Trip Planning.
