Some things to keep in mind:
- While some of Alaska's national parklands are accessible by road, many can only be reached by boat, plane, or non-motorized transportation. Remember this when planning your trip!
- Different seasons provide vastly different experiences in the parks- do your research and be prepared.
- Because so much of Alaska's parklands are made up of remote wilderness areas, there isn't always help nearby should you need it. Know your limits and plan accordingly, and review the safety and incident reporting information before you visit.
- Lastly, these lands are here for your enjoyment. Tell us how we can help you make the most of your visit by getting in touch with park staff via the contact us page.
Commercial operators offer certain services to visitors such as guided trips and transportation that are not provided by NPS staff.
