Summer in Alaska is great with the best part being the hours and hours of day light. With upwards of twenty hours of day light one can really pack in the activities, from hiking and biking to flight seeing and glacier cruises. Packing in the activities may sound like it’ll make you tired but the thing about the hours of sunlight is that it keeps you charged with energy and you’re able to keep moving.
Travelers visiting south central Alaska will find basing out of the Girdwood and The Hotel Alyeska convenient and close to many activities and tours.

Guests of The Hotel Alyeska can also take advantage of the concierge desk, who will help book tours, hikes, scenic flights, anything that guests are looking to do.
