Alaska Honeymoon Ideas

Diverse mountain ranges, spectacular glaciers and a beautiful rainforest guarantee a thrilling, romantic and private getaway in Alaska. You can embrace the wild Alaskan wilderness and camp under the stars in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley or hide away at a rustic bear viewing lodge. If you prefer a little luxury between daily excursions, opt for an all-inclusive Alaska honeymoon package that features a premium honeymoon suite with a cozy fireplace, spa treatments and a private whirlpool tub.

Destination Weddings in Alaska

Exchange vows on a glacier, at the edge of a placid lake or on the coast as humpback whales swim in the distance. Whatever your big day looks like, Alaska delivers when you're looking for adventure. Consider springing for an all-inclusive wedding package and enjoy the benefits of a wedding coordinator. With so many options and variables, he or she can be invaluable with coordinating tasks from photography and videography to bridal bouquets and wedding cake.

Climate & Weather

With its close proximity to the North Pole, Alaska experiences more than 20 hours of daylight in the summer months. In other words, more time for adventure. As the largest U.S. state, it's not surprising that weather conditions vary. For starters, temperatures range from 60 degrees to 80 degrees F but can reach 100 degrees F in a few areas. Northern coasts have a subarctic climate with long, frigid winters and cool summers. Inland, you'll also experience freezing winters while summers are often milder with only a few hot days. You can expect glaciers and permanent snow in the mountain regions. Finally, on the south coast, there is a persistent warm current with abundant precipitation.
