I’ve listed a few below. Unfortunately, there are precautions to take in using the agencies. They work on commission, which means they’re being paid by the establishments you’re buying from. A good agent will disregard the size of the commission and really look out for you, but I’ve encountered so many visitors on poorly planned itineraries that I feel the need to issue a warning. Some travel agents book visitors on trips to far-flung corners of the state in quick succession, so they wind up staying only briefly in expensive places and then zoom off somewhere else, all with little concern for the visitors’ true interests.
JUNE, JULY & AUGUST Summer in Alaska is a miraculous time, when the sun refuses to set, the salmon run upriver, and people are energized by limitless daylight. The sun dips below the horizon in Anchorage for only about 4 hours on June 21, the longest day of the year, and the sky is light all night.
