Unspoiled Wilderness and Glorious Glaciers
America’s largest state, Alaska is a land of staggering natural beauty. Virgin forests blanket the hills and massive glaciers inch toward the sea. Watch whales cavorting just offshore and bears ambling across pristine meadows. Equally fascinating are the rare settlements where people have staked a claim. From the gold rush spirit of Skagway and Juneau to the native culture of Ketchikan and the Russian charm of Sitka, Alaska will enchant you.
