When you choose an Alaska Vacation Home Rental, you can really be a part of the last frontier. Alaska boasts some of the biggest glaciers in the world. Mendenhall Glacier is located 13 miles from downtown Juneau and measures 200 feet tall and more than 1 mile long. Another breathtaking sight is the Juneau Icefield, an impressive view of mountains and more than 40 glaciers. Pilots are willing to take vacationers on flight-seeing excursions around the state to view Mt. McKinley, land on glaciers, access hard to get places or even view bears as they feed on salmon.
If you love history, Alaska offers endless options for you to view and experience its rich history and culture. Immerse yourself in native culture as you enjoy wildlife, sleigh rides, or even drive your own team of sled dogs. Enjoy native music, festivals, crafts, native dancing, blanket tossing, totem carving and more. Alaska has several beautiful lakes that have vacation home rentals that can serve as home base. Big Lake, Conner Lake and Cottonwood Lake are just a few. Here you can enjoy activities including fly fishing or ice-fishing, skating, hockey and wildlife watching. You can engage yourself in these activities at any time of the year because the average temperature in Alaska is approximately 20 degrees F. An Alaska vacation home rental makes the perfect accommodations for your visit to the country's largest state.
