Ocean Waters and Snow Mountains Part of the Alaska Experience


Take an adventure to the last frontier in Alaska.
Everything about Alaska is massive — from the 90-pound cabbages grown in the Matanuska Valley to the coastline that's longer than all the other U.S. states combined. North America's tallest peak, Denali, beckons from the center of the state and its wild, beating heart, Denali National Park. Hike through this vast wilderness, where taiga forests full of pines and spruce stretch below the towering peaks. Sail by the icy beauty of some of the world's most impressive glaciers, from the Hubbard Glacier and the Tracy Arm Fjord. Cruise to Alaska to rent a bike and pedal along Anchorage's Coastal Trail for sweeping views of the rugged forests and the expansive ocean.

Journey Inward
Exploring the interior of Alaska will give you an entirely different perspective on this vast and rugged state. Take an Inside Passage cruise and gaze upward at the sky that is as blue as the lakes below. Hop on the Alaskan Railroad near Anchorage and see the spruce-lined, mountainous landscape whir by from a new perspective.

Glaciers Will Move You
In Alaska, ancient rivers of ice wind between mountains and grind out of valleys. Towering walls of ice like the Hubbard Glacier, Endicott Arm Dawes and the twin Sawyer Glaciers thunder as they calve massive icebergs. Some shore excursions allow up close interaction with these natural wonders.

Journey to "The Great One"
In the center of the state, Denali National Park is blanketed in wildflowers punctuated with mountains, raging rivers and serene lakes. Denali, "The Great One," formerly known as Mt. McKinley, rises to the tallest peak in North America and can be seen from as far away as Anchorage on a clear day. An up-close view is more than worth the expedition during your vacation.

Who Let the Dogs Out?
In some parts of the state, dog sledding is still the primary mode of transportation through the winter months. Visit Alaska and get the experience for yourself at the Skagway Yukon Discovery and Dog Sled Tour. The Siberian Huskies are sweet and energetic, and the ride is a thrill.

Where Are the Whales At?
Head to Kenai Fjords National Park in Seward for a whale watching tour: There's nothing like seeing these behemoths hurl themselves out of the water, to splash back into the sea. Don't pass uparagraphCopy an opportunity to watch these giants feed and play in the water.

Rise Above
Planes are plentiful in Alaska, where they're a common form of transportation across the state. Charter a helicopter or fixed-wing flightseeing tour at Juneau and get an unforgettable perspective of the mountains and glaciers of this vast landscape.
