Known for stretching fields of natural landscapes populated by curious bears and the majestic silhouettes of grazing moose, spend the crisp winter afternoons animal watching from the comforts of your home. Check out these 11 Airbnbs in Alaska for awesome adventures.

Affectionately named “Kobuk’s Stall” after the white Percheron draft horse that used to live in the timber barn, this mini cottage is the perfect vacation stay for a small family of 4. Perched atop California Creek, you get to fall asleep to the calming sights of towering mountains and glistening glaciers all around you. Melt your post-flight fatigue away by taking a soak in the outdoor hot tub under a starry night sky, or indulge in a much needed me-time with a book in hand. After a long day, you can sink into the luxurious double bed - the day couch can be extended into a sleeper for 2, too!

Don’t be too quick to judge this unassuming cabin! During spring, its surroundings are painted with a lovely hue of green but the real magic happens during winter. Basked in a fluffy coat of white, the cabin looks like a secret home tucked away in the mysterious world of Narnia, where mythical beasts and talking animals roam free. With just enough space to squeeze 3 people in, there’s a cosy seating area with blankets provided to keep you plenty warm and the couch there can also be extended into a single sleeper. With a cushy double bed up in the loft, rest up for a new day of adventuring tomorrow!

Terri’s wooden cabin is one of the best cabin rentals in Alaska if your trip up north is to see the elusive northern lights! Accommodating a group of 6, the cabin is best visited during the peak of winter, when the stream behind this cabin transforms into a frozen ice rink during the colder months - perfect for skating enthusiasts. The kitchen is fully functional; you can even add a touch of wilderness to your meals by grilling up a meal at the outdoor fire pit and telling of campfire stories! The soft queen-sized sleepers will ensure that you fall asleep the moment your head touches the pillow, and you can use the long couch as a makeshift sleeper for an extra 2 guests.
