Alaska Weather | Ultimate Alaska Itinerary

The weather information on this page is specific to Nat Hab's Ultimate Alaska Wildlife Safari which explores many of the state's national parks and reserves and takes place from June through August.

The state of Alaska is so big there are really no generalizations that can be made about the weather, except that it can vary widely from place to place and hour to hour. In spring to early fall, coastal Alaska tends to have more days of rain and cooler weather. The interior can experience temperatures in the 80s. Many of the mountains generate their own weather and climate, so expect more cold weather and rain there. 


Come prepared for the possibility of inclement weather, especially heavy rain, and try not to be dismayed should it occur. It is, after all, part of Alaska’s character. Storms and clouds can add drama, especially in the mountains. Photographically, days with a high overcast soften the light and reduce harsh contrast; it is the best kind of light for close-ups of flowers and wildlife. Around the time of the summer solstice, when sunset occurs near midnight, it is possible to take photographs for almost 18 hours a day.
