Staying in Alaska means long walks through untouched wilderness, whale watching without keeping an eye on the time and dining on fresh meals sourced from the very same landscape. In those few moments that you’re not falling in love with the state’s natural beauty, spoil yourself with a stay at one of the best hotels in the Last Frontier – bookable on Culture Trip.

Airport adjacent and close to the city center, the Lakefront Anchorage takes convenience to an ultra-cool level. Watching the hundreds of seaplanes land and take off from Lake Hood is a show in itself, especially when you’re sitting on the side of Lake Spenard splitting a basket of fish and chips with your friends at the Fancy Moose Lounge. The Mt McKinley suite will wow your entire crew with its separate living and dining areas, giving everyone their own space.

There’s no need to fear the Wolf’s Den at Kenai Peninsula Suites; it’s actually one of its finest pet-friendly cabins. Amazing views of Kachemak Bay can be spotted from this subterranean cabin, though you can get a bird’s-eye view of the bay and the mountains from the private deck of the rustic Eagle’s Nest cabin. You’ll sleep a little more than 2mi (3km) from downtown Homer, though you might see a few furry neighbors walk or fly by while you’re hanging out in the hot tub.
