Alaska: Guides & resources to prepare you for your big adventure

The vibe

It’s almost impossible to overuse superlatives when it comes to Alaska. To start, there’s the vast, untamed wilderness, its glaciers, waterfalls, icebergs, deep forests and deeper bays, all defying adequate description. Mist-wringed peaks almost dare humans to conquer them. Brown bears, whales and eagles might appear on any given day. But it’s not just about nature, though that alone would be enough for most of us.

There’s also a richness of culture. Native American, Russian and Norwegian communities still thrive in Alaska, and the hardy spirit that launched the Klondike Gold Rush lives on. Modern cities, rustic towns, incomparable Native American artwork, stellar shopping, fishing, mountain climbing, photo ops and as much adventure as anyone can handle all await in Alaska.

Top reasons to go

  • Whether flightseeing around it or admiring it from afar, Denali (the former Mt. McKinley), North America’s highest peak at 20,320 feet, is awe-inspiring.
  • The marine wilderness of Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve includes tidewater glaciers, snow-capped mountain ranges, ocean coastlines, deep fjords, and freshwater rivers and lakes.
  • Kenai Fjords National Park is a land where the Ice Age still lingers, where glaciers, earthquakes and ocean storms are still the architects.
  • Who doesn't want to see bears, sea otters, eagles and whales? In Alaska, it's always possible.

“No talk of Alaska would be complete without mentioning the crown jewel, Denali National Park. About 250 miles north of the nearest coastal town, Anchorage, Denali boasts more than 6 million acres of rugged beauty. It includes Mount McKinley, as well as abundant wildlife.”

“Don't leave Alaska without sampling local berries such as mossberries, salmonberries, and lingonberries. Farmers markets are best bets.”
