Spend a night under the stunning expanse of Alaska’s stratosphere, where the starry night skies are occasionally covered with wispy trails of colour left behind by the fleeting northern lights.

Check out these 11 Airbnbs in Alaska for awesome adventures.

1. The fisherman's cabin near Montana Creek (from USD 110)

Tucked half a mile away from the Yoder Mountain Trail, escape from the bustling city life here in Peter’s cabin, where Mother Nature’s greatest creations are right outside your doorstep! Built from scratch, this cabin is equipped with just the basic facilities as the hosts want you to explore the grandeur of Alaska - there’s a boiler in the kitchen for your morning fix of coffee or tea, and clean water supplies are found in the pantry. The double sleeper is cosy and warm enough for you to snuggle in even on cold winter nights.

2. Massive mansion near River Park Dr

If the jaw-dropping exterior isn’t enough to convince you to stay at Alexander’s place, perhaps a short spin around your new neighbourhood may change your mind - catch the sight of an occasional grazing moose in the backyard, and explore the South Fork falls for a change of scenery. When you’re tired, retire back to your room for 2 with snug, handmade quilt sheets big enough to wrap around you and your partner - no more snatching of sheets! This vacation rental is considered by many as the best Airbnb in Alaska.

Wake up to the sights of flourishing forests amongst rugged mountainous landscapes - here in this log cabin, you can escape the common tourist traps by booking a stay up in the mountains, where the fully-equipped house will keep you from being bored. Chill out in the indoor lounge area with a glass of wine in hand, as you spend slow afternoons gazing past the serene seas.

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.

5. Mini barn near the Chena River (from USD 93)

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!

11. Quiet wooden cabin near Carrie Lynn Drive

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.
