Transportation During Alaska's Peak Seasons
Alaska's busy seasons for tourism and travel are primarily during the summer months, and select winter months when Northern Lights viewing is best. Planning transportation in advance is crucial to ensure availability. For summer trips, we recommend booking your limo, party bus, or charter bus at least 2-3 months in advance. Popular travel times are June through early September, when temperatures are mildest. Reservations for these times should be booked 6+ months out. For winter Northern Lights excursions, trips should be arranged 4-5 months in advance. Aurora displays peaks between November and March when the skies are darkest. Due to high demand, early reservations are key to avoid availability issues.
Alaska Wedding Transportation
A limo or party bus rental provides a memorable ride for bridal parties between the hotel, ceremony site, reception hall and photoshoots. Alaska's peak wedding season spans May through September, when weather is ideal for outdoor ceremonies and travel conditions are safest.

Limousines and party buses can feature tinted windows for discretion so the groom cannot sneak a peek at the bride's dress en route!
