Southeast Alaska

Because of its proximity to the water, Southeast Alaska is known for its surprisingly moderate climate. In the winter, temperatures rarely dip below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. In the summer, temperatures average in the mid-60’s. Winters tend see a reasonable amount of snow, and summers are privy to both sunshine and rain-showers.

Carved by glaciers, Alaska’s southeast coastline boasts snow-capped peaks and pristine waterways. Primarily rainforest, this area is home to majestic spruce and hemlock, and is a prime habitat for whales, porpoise, sea lions and bald eagles. Much of this area is part of Tongass National Forest, a 16.8 million acre National Reserve. Contrary to popular belief, Southeast Alaska is not a land of “eternal darkness”, even in the winter. In fact, Southeast Alaska enjoys an enormous amount of daylight for most of the year. On the longest day of the year, the sun stays visible for over 18 hours. On the shortest day of the year, in the dead of winter, the sun stays in the sky for almost 6 1/2 hours.
