Notes from the North

We Love Airfare Price Wars!

It's not too late to book your Alaska dream vacation for this summer! Many airlines are in a full-on battle for ticket sales and airfare is downright cheap from major hubs.

Delta, Alaska, JetBlue, and U.S. Airways are a few of the carriers offering direct flights to Anchorage from cities like: Chicago, Minneapolis, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Phoenix, Seattle and many more for under $500 round-trip!

Check-out AlaskaTravelGram for up-to-date deals on airfare.

Congrats to Monica from Arizona!

Wildlife isn't the only thing active in Kenai Fjords National Park lately. Aialik Glacier, a stop on the National Park Tour, has also been aggressively calving its vibrant, blue face.
