Alaska Starts Here

For most visitors to this part of the world, the wild part of Alaska starts at Seward, a small port city that takes advantage of the region's natural beauty.
Kick off your visit on the 17th (Tue): paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour and then admire nature's wide array of creatures at Alaska SeaLife Center.

For other places to visit, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read Seward travel planner.

Wilkes-Barre to Seward is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 4 hours traveling from Wilkes-Barre to Seward due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Wilkes-Barre in August, plan for cooler days in Seward, with highs around 62°F, while nights are little chillier with lows around 51°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Anchorage.

The Last Frontier
The country's largest state, Alaska is also its least densely populated. America's final frontier, the state lies on the Arctic Circle and features some of the highest mountains in the United States. Today, several million people flock annually to the state's pristine wilderness areas, which shelter a diverse plant and animal life and offer a great selection of things to do. Tailor-made for adventurous types wishing to leave civilization behind, Alaska can also be an extremely expensive vacation destination, with few transportation options and much of its land accessible only by plane or helicopter.
