Year-round activities


Alaska is famous for its spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife and long summer days. What you may not realize is the fact that Alaskans don't hibernate through the long winter. Rather, we compensate with outdoor adventure, cultural events, the majestic Northern Lights, and great dining experiences. We are long-time Alaskans and are happy to offer suggestions regardless of the time of year you are visiting.

Alaska's Largest Open-Air Market. Located in the heart of downtown it consists of over 300 vendors, on seven acres of downtown Anchorage.

Six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Taiga forests give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages.

By bringing filmmakers from all parts of the country and world to Alaska, we want artists to connect with people they might not otherwise meet, and engage audiences in workshops, screenings, and plenty of celebratory parties.
