Alaska is known as the land of the midnight sun as we bask in 19.5 hours of daylight on summer solstice. Our summer temperatures reach into the mid to upper 70s and the landscape transforms into green trees and flower blossoms. On winter solstice, we enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets over beautiful snowcapped mountains and darkness brings the possibility of breathtaking displays of the northern lights.
