It’s a trip of a lifetime, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do Alaska on a budget.
I’ll admit, my last trip to Alaska wasn’t exactly on a shoestring (I was there for a shoot), but I’m a practical gal and am always trying to seek out the best bang-for-you-buck options.
If you’re thinking about visiting the last frontier, I’m sure your travel plans are already in the works. Whether it’s a cruise or a Yukon adventure, now is the time to start figuring out exactly how you want to spend your time and money. So while you may be splurging on a helicopter ride or whale-watching excursion, there’s all sorts of opportunities to save a little cash.
A few places I loved? How about the Silver Gulch Brewering & Bottling Company (who doesn’t like a beer or two after a day in the wilderness), or rubbing elbows with musk ox at the Large Animal Research Station? And where else on the planet can you take a walk in the woods with bonafide reindeer? The only place I can think of is the North Pole… and Running Reindeer Ranch.
Check out this video for more on that, plus two other experiences that won’t break the bank.
