  • Summer Fun at Alyeska

    "My wife and I spent four days in this nice Girdwood condo in August of 2014. We arrived at the end of the day, after a ten hour wildlife cruise in Seward. Lots to do here during the summer. We hiked, biked, took an additional Glacier cruise in Whittier- just 45 minutes away- and just relaxed, watching hang gliders drift down from the mountain tops to the valley below. Fantastic scenery everywhere. I imagine it is a perfect location for skiing in the winter, with lifts right outside the door. Decent restaurants and a medium sized general store downtown (walking distance) for times when we ate in. The kitchen was well equipped and the entire place was spotless. The flexible floor plan allows groups or families to sub-divide this condo into two halves with privacy between both sides- although it was not necessarry for us to choose this option. An excellent getaway to a beautiful ski resort... during the middle of the summer!"

  • A definite "home away from home"

    "This was our first time ever visiting Alaska. We travelled to visit our son serving at Ft. Richardson and we wanted a place that we could call "home" for the week. It far exceeded our expectations! What a wonderful and loved home! Tom has gone to great lengths to make this a place that people would want to come back to, we certainly will call him if we return in the future! Thanks Tom!"

  • Exciting Adventure

    "What a wonderful location for our Fairbanks Adventure. The property is nestled in a wonderful wooded setting. The listing is totally accurate and the pictures truly represent the property. We were comfortable right from the start. It was great to have a washer and dryer included at this location. The owner was available and provided information on sites to visit and places to eat too. We would certainly return to this property if we visit Fairbanks, AK again."

Most people will fly to Alaska; the primary airport hub is in Anchorage.

Worth, Atlanta, Seattle and San Francisco. From Canada, there are frequent flights from Vancouver and Toronto. Alaska is popular vacation destination for travelers from Europe and the Far East. There are regular commercial flights from Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and also Frankfurt in Germany. From Anchorage, you can get domestic flights to your destination.

Sometimes if the area you are visiting is more remote, you will need to travel by seaplane or ferry to get there. The road and rail network in Alaska is limited by the rugged glacial terrain but still provides good access to most major towns and tourist attractions. Alaska is a destination where it is helpful to have some time to spare. The landscapes are so beautiful that it is sometimes worth taking the time to enjoy rather than rushing from place to place.

Activities and Attractions at Alaska Cabins

Alaska is an adventure and outdoor haven which may be surprising to some, considering the cold climate the state experiences. In both summer and winter, there are a host of great activities that can keep you occupied on your travels. Wherever you go, you will want to take your camera with you to capture the action and great scenery. Some of the great winter attractions are the Northern Lights and the Aurora Borealis. This natural light phenomenon is amazing to see. Alaska has a number of top-quality ski resorts that offer downhill and cross country skiing. Many have snowboarding terrain parks and fun ski schools for kids. Snowmobiles are commonly used to get around in the winter months. It is a popular sport too.

The more traditional way to explore the countryside is by dog sledding. The dogs are superbly trained and exceptionally fast. This is an amazing experience. There are several places in Alaska where you can go whitewater rafting on grade IV and V rapids. Be prepared for the ride of your life on the churning white waters. For paddlers, there are many kayaking opportunities. You can also test your skills in the white waters or opt for something a little more leisurely up the fjords or along the coast. In season, you can experience amazing whale, dolphin and orca sightings and get up close to these magnificent creatures of the sea. There are endless hiking opportunities in Alaska. Serious mountaineers travel to Alaska each year to conquer Denali which is North America’s tallest peak. Alaska also has a rich gold mining history and many of the museums tell tales of the early gold pioneers.
