Plan Alaska with Confidence

As you consider a trip to Alaska this summer we know that travel restrictions and the health of you and your travel companions are top of mind. Through Alaska Tour & Travel you'll find flexible planning solutions that take at least some of the uncertainty out of traveling.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • We have instituted a flexible cancellation policy for 2020. All 202 reservations are fully refundable up until 31 days prior to travel. No cancellation fees, no change fees, no fuss.
  • In addition, we have over 300 services, including the Alaska Railroad and our Park Connection Motorcoach, that are fully refundable up until 72 hours prior to service this summer. This gives us even more flexibility for refunding at least part of your trip if you need to cancel within 30 days of travel.
  • If you do need to cancel, you have the option of rolling over your deposit to a 2021 trip. If you do, we will honor your 2020 rates or we will extend a 5% discount, whichever saves you more.

Use these travel finders to see summer 2020 availability for more than 200 services in Southcentral and Interior Alaska. This information is updated daily.

Are There Recommended Itineraries for this Summer?

The Alaska travel industry has worked diligently to make summer travel safer regardless of your itinerary. That said, there are a few ways to make traveling easier given the new normal. These include self-drive trips and planning your vacation around a base camp like Seward or Anchorage.

How is Alaska Preparing for Safer Travel?

The Alaska tourism industry has updated processes that ensure traveler safety in the summer of 2020. In many cases these are enhancements to procedures already in place. Please view this page for more information.

What is the Alaska Travel Mandate?

On June 6 new testing protocols were put in place that allow visitors to Alaska to avoid a 14-day self-quarantine by being tested for COVID-19 up to five days prior to arriving in Alaska. Visit this page for FAQs about the mandate. Important Update: Beginning August 11, the State of Alaska will require all nonresident travelers entering the state to have taken and passed a COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival. This is an update to the original Alaska travel mandate, which made provisions for travelers testing upon arrival or quarantining while awaiting results. Testing at the airport, the five-day testing period option, and the quarantine option will NO LONGER be available for nonresident travelers. Please check the Alaska COVID-19 Traveler Information page for current information.
