Alaska – An Experience of a Lifetime

Looking for an experience of a lifetime while getting paid to do it? Then you need to check out what Alaska has to offer.

There’s no doubt, Alaska is a popular destination for travelers in the spring and summer, when competition is at its peak (no pun intended). You may ask, why would I want to travel to Alaska in the winter? Seasonal travelers often miss out on what Alaska has to offer during the winter. As the seasons change from winter to spring, you will experience the sun beginning to peak above the horizon with the snow melting around you, revealing a whole new world.

Alaska Northern LightsIt’s true, Alaska receives little sunlight in the winter. While this may deter many from considering an assignment there, it could be the best kept secret of what Alaska offers. With just six hours of sunlight per day, your eyes become sensitive to every color and movement. The Aurora Borealis, better known as the Northern Lights, speak for itself. Hands down, this natural phenomenon will be one you will never forget.

Towards the end of your winter assignment as the seasons change, the sun eventually stays in the sky for 24 hours making your days and possibilities never ending. While we have a lot of jobs year round, I always recommend travelers to come during the winter and extend through the summer to experience it all!

If you’re not sold yet, don’t forget about all of the Alaskan activities. Some which you won’t experience anywhere else! Unique traditions like Running of the Reindeer, Dog Mushing, and outhouse races will give you an authentic Alaskan experience. Check out this link for even more winter activities in Alaska.

Whether you want to be in big cities like Anchorage or a remote village, Alaska has it all! So what are you waiting for?
