Only have 48 hours in Alaska? No problem!

Here is an itinerary of what to do if you only have 48 hours in Alaska.

Day 1 Morning – Wildlife Viewing

You cannot visit Alaska without immersing yourself in the beautiful, untouched nature! There are many wildlife tours to choose from, or just visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center to view animals in their natural habitat.

Day 1 Midday – Dog Sledding

Whether you visit in summer or winter, dog sledding tours are offered year round at Salmon Berry. See what this Alaskan tradition is all about – plus you get to pet some adorable pups!

Day 1 Night – Northern Lights

The Northern Lights, another true Alaskan treasure. It is possible to see the light year round but they will be much more visible in winter.

Day 2 Morning – Hike

Hiking in Alaska is a beautiful way to start your day! You can choose to hike alone or with a tour guide. A couple of the best hikes are at Chugach State Park and Eagle River Nature Center.

Day 2 Midday – Find a Glacier

Just a couple hours outside the city, you will find these mighty blocks of ice. The closest one is the Portage Glacier, 50 miles from Anchorage!

Day 2 Night – Check out the Nightlife

Anchorage is the most happenin’ part of Alaska! Check out the heart of the city and maybe even take a brewery tour to taste some of Alaska’s craft brews.

Come back and visit Alaska for more than 48 hours next time – we know you’ll want to after this itinerary!
