The vast wilds of Alaska are a story of pristine waterways, calving glaciers, towering mountain peaks that stretch on for an eternity, and forests filled with massive grizzly bears feasting on salmon.
Alaska is North America's 'Last Frontier' and by far the biggest state in the USA. Roads connect Anchorage, Fairbanks and other cities, but much of south-east Alaska, including the capital Juneau, is inaccessible by road. Ferries, planes and cruise ships connect coastal towns, while other towns and villages can only be accessed by air.
Alaska is a state in USA that borders Canada. Start your Alaska holiday from the Inside Passage and continue to The Far North to pay a visit to the Arctic Trading Post or The Trans-Alaska Pipeline System.
Admire Mt McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America, in Denali National Park and catch a glimpse of its reflection in Wonder Lake. Tour Katmai National Park for its active volcanoes and visit the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes.
Continue your Alaska cruise to Glacier Bay to meander through calving glaciers or take a trail in the Kenai Peninsula to get close to the edge of Exit Glacier or continue to the Far North to explore an Inuit settlement.
Alaska is also awesome in the winter. Time your arrival for the Iditarod dog sled race, which starts in Anchorage, and complete your travels by witnessing The Northern Lights.
