Things to Do in
Start planning a trip to Alaska with kids and experience epic scenery, unique wildlife and adventures for every age.
Have a private meet-and-greet with the pups, take an exhilarating ride out on the trails on specially-designed carts and get a behind-the-scenes look at real Iditarod equipment.
Cruise through Kenai Fjords National Park. Most of the park is covered in ice and plenty more is water, so a cruise is your best option to explore!
Visit Alaska National Parks
Take a bear viewing tour
The most famous spot for bear viewing in Alaska is Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park, but for smaller crowds and lower cost explore Lake Clark National Park instead.
In addition to the incredible mountain scenery, Denali National Park & Preserve offers incredible wildlife viewing and plenty of on- and off-trail hiking.

TAKE A HIKE
There are enough kid-friendly hikes in Alaska to keep you busy for your whole trip if that’s how you want to spend all your time, and I wouldn’t blame you one bit.
The Last Frontier is brimming with incredible wildlife to “meet” and learn about during your Alaska family vacation.
Learn about local animals in Alaska
Whether salmon fishing in a river, halibut fishing in deep water or catching Dolly Varden in a lake you won't want to miss this experience.
Glacier walking is a family-friendly activity and Matanuska Glacier is the largest road-accessible glacier in the state.
