Alaska is the largest US state, and has fewer than 800,000 people. The vast majority of this destination is untamed wilderness rich in wildlife.
Most people visit in summer to take advantage of the long days – in late June there are only a couple of hours of darkness each day. The opposite is true in deep winter when the sun only peeks over the horizon, but the long nights offer the unique opportunity to see the aurora borealis in its full glory.
Coastal Alaska is where you will fund deep fjords and towering glaciers. Take a cruise around the islands and coastline of the Inside Passage or view the sights by helicopter. Outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty of hiking, mountain biking and rafting opportunities in Alaska’s vast national parks. Float the rivers and explore the gold mining frontier in Wrangell-St Elias or see the wildlife around Denali, North America’s tallest mountain.
