Alaska Vacation Budgeting

The unique experience of visiting Alaska means that you should think differently about your travel budget.

Some of Alaska’s most dramatic sights can only be accessed by plane or boat, and most unique experiences (like river rafting, glacier hiking, and dog sledding) require expert guides and gear. You’ll likely want to travel around and not stay in one place, but some of Alaska’s most compelling destinations will be hundreds of miles from your previous night’s stop. We suggest planning to spend $400 per person per day for a quality vacation that doesn’t cut corners.
