Best Places to Stay in Alaska
New Item

June 23, 2019

When you think of Alaska, you are tempted to think of the icebergs taller than skyscrapers, fishing, and mining. But Alaska is the largest and least populated state in the US and home to national parks larger than some countries, diverse open terrains, breathtakingly beautiful mountains, and dense green forests for any adventurous spirit. During a trip to Alaska either for a vacation or your Alaska wedding, a great place to stay will make sure that you enjoy your trip. Here are some of the best considerations to make when looking at places to stay in Alaska.

Alaska Lodge and Resort

A resort is often one of the most considered places to stay in Alaska and with good reason. In Alaska, you are sure to find luxury all-inclusive resorts scattered in the beautiful Alaskan open landscape. The majority of resorts will have access to Alaska fishing spots, offer national park tours and glacier viewing, kayaking, and unimaginable hiking trails. You should expect to receive the same sophisticated high-end service and professionalism when you book an Alaska lodge.

Hotels and Motels

Hotels and motels in Alaska are not very different from what you find in other states. The most significant thing about them is the beautiful surrounding of green vegetation and tall mountains, depending on where you book. Hotels will be located close to amenities, transport systems will be readily available, close to restaurants and bar, health spas and business centers. Expect to take a well-deserved swim in luxury pools in many of the large establishments.

Log Cabins

If you want to experience a little Alaskan history, then Alaska log cabins are the ideal place to stay on your vacation. Most log cabins are made like homes making it the perfect stay for a family or group. They are made with a warmly home feeling to give you that piece of mind you get when you are in a home setting. They range from the historic rustic build to the more upscale and model builds. They include full facility and amenities such as kitchen and some even have saunas. This is truly one of the best historic places to stay in Alaska.

Campgrounds and RV Parks

If a road trip in your RV is what you have in mind, Alaska offers some of the best campgrounds and RV parks. You may have to sacrifice the luxury stay and amenities that places like hotels provide, but the nature vacation you experience as you drive through Alaska will make it worthwhile. There are numerous options available around the state. This includes private and publicly owned campsites. You can pitch your tent at the foot of a mountain next to a pristine lake or pull off next to a favorite fishing spot for dinner and some rest. This option allows you to have an Alaska adventure at your backyard with mountain biking, fishing, hiking, canoeing and kayaking easily connected to most campsites and RV parks.

Bed and Breakfast

Want to make some friends on your trip? Bed and breakfast will give you this option conveniently. Whether you want to stay away from the heat of town or be caught up in the middle of it all, there will always be an Alaskan BandB available to feed your adventure appetite. Besides enjoying the genuine Alaskan hospitality, you gain knowledge and valuable information about the area you are staying in. Also, you get insight on the best trails to take for a hike, the best places to visit and the best time of day to make the trip.

Alaska is truly a tranquil destination to visit bursting with a lot of activity to keep you busy and relaxed. The Alaskan state park system has more than 3.2 million acres of land and water and is the largest in the US. You cannot run out of places to stay in Alaska with the dozens of luxury resorts, hotels, and cabins available. Your adventure will direct you to the best option to choose.
