Plan Alaska with Confidence

As you consider a trip to Alaska later this summer we know that the travel restrictions and the health of you and your travel companions is 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 reservations are now 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 now fully refundable up until 72 hours prior to service. This gives use 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.

What's Open in Alaska?

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

Throughout the state restaurants, businesses, lodges, museums, and recreational activities have returned to regular operations under the Reopen Alaska Responsibly plan.

Are There Recommended Itineraries for this Summer?

The Alaska travel industry is working carefully 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 developed new processes to 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.

On June 6 new testing protocols were put in place that allow visitors to Alaska to avoid the previous 14-day self-quarantine by being tested for Covid-19 prior to departing for Alaska. Be sure to visit this page for more details or contact us with questions.
