Alaska – Top 10 Things to do in the Fall – Sept 2018


Anchorage’s fall season has arrived and it brings some of the prettiest views of the year. Autumn in Alaska means shimmering gold birch leaves, gorgeous sunsets, crisp air and shoulder season pricing. Your budget-conscious clients can explore while enjoying the best Anchorage has to offer.

Northern Lights Viewing
By the time September rolls around, true night skies have returned to Anchorage and that means the northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, can be viewed again. You don’t have to go far to increase your chances to see the aurora and its vibrant displays.

Whale Watching & Wildlife Viewing
Score a front row seat with great views of glaciers, whales, sea otters and maybe even a bear. Through the end of September and into the first weeks of October, one of the most popular Alaska activities is a glacier and wildlife cruise of Kenai Fjords National Park or Prince William Sound.

Ride the Rails
The Alaska Railroad offers year-round service. Hop a train to Fairbanks for fantastic views of the changing fall colors and maybe even a clear shot of Denali. Or take a day trip up to scenic Hurricane on one of the last whistle stop trains in America.
