Isn’t it funny that people can’t wait for summer to arrive, and then when it finally does everyone’s sick of it because it’s “too hot”? You want to take a break from the constant sweating, concrete heat waves and low breathing capacity, but don’t know where to go?

Imagine this: the perfect spring temperature, cool sea breezes, breathtaking scenery and sparkling glaciers ahead. Sounds good? Then pack up a few things and don’t worry, you’re not even going far away and get ready to cool off in Alaska.

When it comes to looks, there’s really no place in America that can measure up to the level of standard that Alaska has put up. Only superlatives can be used to describe the wonders that his almost magical land possesses.

To fully enjoy your cool off in Alaska, you must understand it. It’s the biggest, wildest, most beautiful and even highest state in the US and it has all of nature’s wonders. You don’t have to worry about not being able to see everything; the days are long and sunny and it’s easy to explore.

If you like to do all kinds of activities on your trips, and not just lounge and drink cocktails, you’ll never want to leave. Choose from hiking, rafting, kayaking, fishing, panning for gold, cycling, wildlife watching, walking on glaciers, floatplane flying, seeing the aurora borealis and riding on a scenic railway if you can. We dare you!

There are so many things to do, you will want to do all of them. And remember, you won’t even break a sweat because that’s why you chose Alaska – to escape the deadly city summer sizzle.

On the other hand, even if you are a person that prefers lounging and enjoying the scenery, you will find the Alaskan hotels and restaurants very accommodating.

Take a sip of that lovely, cool beer after a wonderful dish of freshly caught and just cooked Chinook salmon. Talk to people and get to know those lovely loners.

If you do decide to take us up on this trip, then don’t forget to pack up your own outdoor equipment, because Alaska prices are quite expensive. That doesn’t count only for equipment; everything’s kind of pricy, especially in the remote areas. Also, bring a lot of bug repellents, because mosquitoes and the gang can get rowdy in the season and remember to stock up on food and petrol when travelling away from main centers.
