A Luxury Alaska Resort: Dream Vacation Destination

April 09, 2019

The time has come, finally, to plan your next vacation. How wonderful! Now for the big question: Where do you go when you want to get away from it all?

The choices seem to be endless, but there is one option rapidly gaining in popularity among vacation-goers around the world. What is this fantastic destination? Nature vacations staying in a luxury Alaska resort.

If you're surprised that a vacation in a luxury Alaska resort is one of the most popular in the world, just consider this fact: between May and September of 2016, 1,857,500 visitors from out-of-state enjoyed a vacation in Alaska. And 20% of all the international visitors to Alaska that same summer stayed in a lodge or resort during their trip.

It's true: of all the places to stay in Alaska, a luxury Alaska resort is among the most popular. But why is that among the top places to stay in Alaska? What makes a luxury Alaska resort so popular for vacations?

First of all, there's an incredible variety of all-inclusive vacations in Alaska. Your Alaska vacation could be in a rental with the basics to give you a real feel for the great outdoors. Or, at the other end of the spectrum, you could enjoy a luxury lodge in one of Alaska's vacation spots. Here, the amenities will match everything you could imagine! Many travelers find that all-inclusive vacations make planning and budgeting much easier. 

Also, there is a family-friendly atmosphere that is such an important part of Alaska as a vacation spot. The incredible beauty of Alaska lends itself to outdoor activities and nature vacations. The size of Alaska is staggering, and the wilderness comprises 52% of the total acreage of the state. Are you looking for national forests and state parks? Historical sites and monuments? Preserves and refuges? All that you could possibly dream of can be found in Alaska’s parks--which number over 75 in total.

The land and water acreage in the Alaska State Park System totals over 3.2 million acres, making it the largest in the entire U.S. With all this water, fishing is a hugely popular sport in Alaska, with 11% of all visitors coming to Alaska to fish in 2016. And most of these guests in 2016 stayed in a lodge: 49% stayed in a fishing lodge on their nature vacations.

So when you are thinking about your next vacation, be sure to consider a luxury Alaska resort. However you like to spend your time on vacation, whether it is fishing in Alaska, attending an Alaska wedding, or kayaking, you will find that you’re actually getting into the very best that nature has to offer, with memories you will cherish forever.
