December is marked by full winters in Alaska. The last two weeks of December are perhaps the darkest and coldest weeks of the entire year. Although not the same as a summer trip, taking a trip to Alaska in December has a charm of its own. Museums and winter sports such as snowmobiling, skiing, ice skating, and dog sled racing get a lot of attention this month.

You also get to save a massive amount of money on travel fare and lodging in this season! Here’s how you can make the most out of a trip to Alaska this December.

Participate in Winter Sports

Don’t let the freezing temperature stop you from participating in winter activities during your trip to Alaska in December. Winter sports such as skiing, ice skating, ice fishing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, snow kayaking, and dog sledding are a must to help you make your trip memorable and worthwhile.

See the Aurora Borealis

Alaska is known for its glorious Aurora Borealis. December is an ideal month to view the northern lights across the winter starry sky. The dark winter skies allow you to appreciate the Aurora in its most authentic essence. Make sure to keep checking the aurora forecast so you don’t miss out.

Glacier Sightseeing

Alaska is also known for its mesmerizing glaciers. The good news is that the glaciers are much more glorious in the winter season, especially in December. Some of the must-see glaciers in Alaska include Knik Glacier, Exit Glacier, Byron Glacier, Portage Glacier, Mendenhall Glacier, and Worthington Glacier.

Visit National Parks

Alaska has several beautiful National Parks with captivating landscapes and rich wildlife. The National Parks provide various exciting opportunities in December, including biking, snowshoeing, skiing, and a lot more. Some famous National Parks in Alaska include Denali National Park, Kenai Fjords National Park, and Glacier Bay National Park.

Pack Warm Clothes

Make sure to pack warm clothes so you can stand the freezing temperatures. This includes gloves, wool socks, insulated boots, mufflers, sweatshirts, and sweaters. Additionally, pack specialized winter apparel if you wish to participate in winter sports.
