As the United States' last great wilderness, Alaska is the type of rugged locale where true adventurers thrive. Untamed and untouched, enter into the wild on a retreat to a pristine land where you’re as likely to see a caribou as you are a car.
Mother Nature's quite the artist. Wander through a gallery of her finest work, from grumbling grizzlies to snow-capped peaks, sprawling skies to wildflower-laden valleys.
With your wanderlust partner in tow, discover the meaning of total serenity at the base of Mount McKinley, one of North America’s most stately peaks. Towering above still waters and cascading meadows, it’s Alaska’s own little Eden.
Covering 13.2 million acres, the marvel of Wrangell-St. Elias feels endless. A poster child for sub-artic terrain, the park’s rugged and icy landscape offers singular experiences: glacier excursions and rare wildlife sightings.
Home to 95% of the United States’ entire brown bear population, there’s no place like Alaska to spot a grizzly. Perhaps not as cuddly as the teddy packed in your suitcase, the sight of one is sure to give you the same warm fuzzies - and a jolt to the senses.
Feet first - that’s how you come to understand this type of landscape. From sea kayaking and tide pooling to hiking and birding, let Alaska’s unspoiled terrain be your playground.
With a coastline as rich as its towering mountain ranges, Kenai Fjords National Park offers a peek at the state’s wealth of aquatic residents. Keep an eye out for breaching humpbacks or the graceful glide of a soaring bald eagle.
The scenery of Alaska is much grander than anything else of the kind.
