Most visitors to Alaska come during our incredible, endless summers from which Alaska has earned the name “Land of the Midnight Sun” while others visit in March to see our glorious auroral (northern lights) displays. Though endless days and viewing the aurora may seem to be extreme experiences nothing, NOTHING, is as extreme as our temperature extreme.
In 2012, the Interior of Alaska (see Fairbanks above) saw a 137 degree F (30C high to -47C low= 77C) difference in temperature at approximately mid summer to mid winter.
I hope this guide helps you to make an informed decision on when to visit Alaska.
Thanks for having a look at The Interior of Alaskan Life.
