When is the best time to cruise Alaska?
The Alaskan cruise season runs approximately from May to September. Choosing the best time to go is difficult and dependent on your plans upon arrival, not to mention the unpredictable weather conditions that Alaska certainly does not apologise for. June to August brings the hottest temperatures but rainfall is not uncommon during this season. For people who are heading to Alaska for wildlife spotting and the famous fishing expeditions, summer is certainly your best bet for cruising. With colder weather and spontaneous downfalls of snow, May to September brings the winter season and the cheaper Alaska cruise deals. Despite the chance of cancelled tours and excursions due to weather, September does bring the highest chance of spotting the miraculous Northern Lights.
