Alaska’s Inside Passage, a popular cruise itinerary, stretches 500 miles along the Pacific Ocean and boasts wildlife-filled fjords, tidewater glaciers, and lush island scenery.
It is also accessible on the state ferry along the Alaska Marine Highway System, which stops at 35 ports of call from Bellingham, Washington, to Dutch Harbor.
Tack on an added outdoor venture such as kayaking, hiking, fishing, or glacier viewing, and take in awesome wildlife like whales, bears, and eagles.
Traditional lands of the Athabascan people, Southcentral Alaska is home to more than half the state's total population and Anchorage, the state's largest city.
If you don’t want to take a train or cruise, you can book a tour bus from Anchorage, which offers plenty of legroom and big-picture windows with hop-on, hop-off service.
You’ll find world-class museums, plenty of lodging options, fantastic restaurants, salmon fishing, shopping, and over 100 miles of multi-use trails.
Denali is the continent’s tallest peak among a vastness of tundra. The forests are filled with wildlife ranging from the formidable grizzly bear to large herds of traveling caribou.
You’ll see all sorts of sights along the highway connecting Anchorage to Fairbanks, which runs through the entrance to the Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska’s most popular land attraction. Get there in 3 hours from Fairbanks by car or bus and 4 hours by train.
The Arctic is one of Alaska’s most remote and diverse regions, filled with cultural opportunities, unique wildlife, and a landscape ranging from the Arctic coastline to broad stretches of tundra.
For those with a sense of adventure and a nature lover by heart, the Southwest area has to be at the top of your list!
