Find out when the sun will rise and set during your Alaska trip. Our summer days are long while winter days are short. As you go further north during your trip to Alaska, the summer days get even longer.
In the Far North, the sun doesn't set for months! Some people think Alaska has less sunlight than other places. The opposite is true.
If you include civil twilight, Alaska gets 40 minutes more light on average than the rest of the country. Even during those months of the year when Alaska has the same daylight hours as other locations, the days seem longer. That's because the sun rises and sets later in Alaska due to time zone boundaries. On an Alaska fishing trip, it's civil twilight you care about; it can give you an extra hour of natural light on the water, both morning and evening!
