IF YOU’RE TRAVELING TO ALASKA, CONSIDER THIS…..
If you’re traveling to Alaska for a short stay or the summer, your arrival point is, most likely, the Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage.
A two-minute shuttle ride puts you at Lake Hood – the world’s busiest floatplane base. From here, you can connect to most anywhere in Southcentral Alaska to fish, hunt, bear view, walk on a glacier and more!
Being veterans of Alaska for some 20 years, there are only a few places we haven’t visited…..yet. But if I were to give advice to a newcomer, it would be to consider your first trip based out of Lake Hood.
Alaska is too vast, and many areas too remote, to see all in one trip. A few short excursions to the destinations of your choice will give you a sample of what the more remote areas have to offer without committing all your time to one location. Take advantage of the time you have and see the most you can flying from Lake Hood.
It’s a big state with a lot to see and do. Do your research and have a plan that’ll target the areas and activities higher on your list.
