Resources to help plan your trip to Alaska

Airfare
Alaska Airlines is one of our favorite airlines and has connecting service from most major cities. Travelocity.com, Expedia.com and Orbitz.com are also good places to look for airfare. We advise doing your homework when looking for airfare to Alaska. If you're looking for an air taxi or "Bush Pilot" (as they're locally known), we recommend Kantishna Air Taxi, K2 Air and Talkeetna Air Taxi

What To Do
Alaska's official state tourism organization is the Alaska Travel Industry Association. Anchorage has a Convention and Visitors Bureau with information about fun and interesting things to do in Anchorage.

Our friends at alaska.org produce an Alaska Activities Map each year, full of great information and resources to help you plan your Alaskan vacation!
