The Best Honeymoon Destinations in Alaska

Alaska is a state with intriguing destinations and attractions, whether it's the state capital of Anchorage, or historic pioneer towns that serve as entry points to the expansive wilderness.

  • 1. Anchorage

    Rent a bike and cycle down the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail to Kincaid Park, where you might encounter some curious moose and caribous. Or take a kayak tour on Eklutna Lake, surrounded by the towering Chugach Mountains. Rejuvenate with a couples hot stone massage at a local spa, right in the lap of nature. Plan a special date night at one of the bars, pubs, or cabarets in town.

  • 2. Fairbanks

    Fairbanks is the gateway to the heart of Arctic Alaska. The city is home to important museums such as the Fairbanks Community Museum, Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, and Tanana Valley Railroad Museum. Summertime visitors can enjoy a range of festivals for music, art, or community fairs. Fairbanks is the starting point to multi-day Arctic excursions, including those where you can catch a bear feasting on wild salmon just like on nature shows.

  • 3. Talkeetna

    History buffs will enjoy this pioneer town set on the confluence of three glaciers. The 'Gateway to Mount McKinley' provides thrills like zip lining above lush forest cover, fabulous views of the Alaska Range and Denali, and the Chulitna and Susitna river valleys. Downtown Talkeetna is home to numerous locally-owned shops, restaurants, and breweries.

  • 4. Denali National Park and Preserve

    Spend a couple of nights at this reserve that's home to North America's highest mountain. Priceless rewards await in the form of wildlife such as reindeer, wild bears, and wolves, and mind-blowing views as you hike or bike along well-marked paths.

  • 5. Mendenhall Glacier and Ice Caves

    A surreal honeymoon destination, this landmark is receding due to rising temperatures. A strenuous trek will get you to caves where water gushes over rocks as you gaze at an icy blue ceiling. Wear waterproof shoes with a good grip, and hire a guide as the trails are often unmarked. While here, why not go rafting or kayaking at Mendenhall Lake?

What to Do During Your Honeymoon in Alaska

Wildlife lovers and outdoor enthusiasts will have their time fully occupied in the Alaskan wilderness. It's best to plan your honeymoon in summer when the hiking trails are accessible, and the added daylight hours will let you fully explore the wilderness. Winter is as inviting, with its skiing and snowmobiling opportunities.

  • 1. Dog Sledding

    You've watched it in movies; now experience the call of the wild yourself as sinewy Alaskan Malamute dogs take you on a joyride across the powdery white slopes.

  • 2. Alaskan Cruise

    Get off dry land and onto a luxury cruise liner sailing along Alaska's rugged coastline. Visit the old seaside towns of Skagway and Ketchikan, and get your front row tickets to witness local wildlife going about their daily affairs.

  • 3. Aerial Tours

    A once-in-a-lifetime experience awaits as you soar through the Alaskan skies in a bush plane, taking in jaw-dropping views of crystal glaciers, blue lakes, and forests laid out below. Watch as mountains morph into gigantic pyramids of rock and snow below you.

  • 4. Northern Lights

    Winter honeymooners can make the most of Northern Lights tours, where they're specially transported to villages where these surreal green lights are most visible. The Aurora Borealis emerges in all its colorful beauty above you.
