Alaska Travel to

ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
The natural, rugged beauty of Alaska is its foremost appeal. Some of the most popular destinations in this massive state include Glacier Bay National Park and the entire Inside Passage, Mt. McKinley and Denali National Park, Kenai Peninsula, Kodiak Island and the Pribilof Islands.

For additional attractions and points-of-interest, follow the links below.


CONVENTION AND VISITOR BUREAUS:
GENERAL INTEREST:
  • Electricity: 110/120V, 60Hz
  • Times to Travel: Temperatures are somewhat mild late May through early September and in the opinion of many, it's the best time to visit. Those (summer-like) weather conditions attract large crowds to the national parks in the south, and to the rugged Kenai Peninsula.

    Winter in Alaska is also strongly recommended, as it's the season of northern lights, local festivals, wildlife viewing, outdoor activities including dog mushing, fishing, hunting, and some of the world's best cross-country and downhill skiing.

TOURISM SITES AND LINKS:
PASSPORTS - TRAVEL VISAS:

United States entry requirements are the same in all states, with most foreign travelers requiring a visa. There are exceptions as Canadian citizens only need proof of that citizenship. Travelers coming to the U.S. for tourism or business for 90 days or less from qualified countries may be eligible to visit the U.S. without a visa.

For the latest information, including required documentation, any interested party should apply at the American Embassy or Consulate with jurisdiction over their place of permanent residence. In addition, we strongly recommend visiting the U.S. Department of State's visa website page
