Summertime is the best time to visit The Hotel Captain Cook. During this sun-filled season, it is quite splendid in Alaska with many dry days and the famous midnight sun. Rent bikes across the street from the hotel and ride along the Coastal Trail that will lead you to Kincaid Park where you can hike, jog, or picnic after taking in the stunning beauty of Alaska. If you choose to visit during wintertime, aside from hiking, snowshoeing and skiing, The Hotel Captain Cook is at the heart of the festive Fur Rondy to celebrate the world-famous Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race where the ceremonial start begins just a block away from the hotel. And if you’re lucky, you might glimpse the breathtaking Northern Lights from your hotel room.
