Alaska Mosquito Season

Q: What is the best time to visit alaska and avoid the mosquitos??
A: Generally speaking, mosquitos are not a problem in the urban communities such as Anchorage, Juneau, or Seward. You are more likely to run into mosquitos while on excursions, or in destinations such as Denali or other parks. The mosquito population tends to peak early and by mid-July and August they are less of a nuisance. Bring some bug repellent while enjoying the outdoors and you’ll be fine.

    “The mosquito population tends to peak early” What is early? This doesn’t really give me a very clear idea if my vacation in May will be impacted. Cruising lower half, Ketchican and points south.

    Linda, if you are cruising you don’t have too much to be concerned about as you’ll primarily be in coastal areas and on board. In towns such as Ketchikan and Juneau you don’t really get too far off the beaten paths and urban areas probably much like you would find at home in most of the United States.
