Alaska Travel Guide

The United States of America's northernmost state, Alaska, takes travelers about as far north as they can get before landing in the North Pole! The icy scenery and snowy landscapes of Alaska immerse travelers in an environment of rugged wilderness quite unlike anything that can be found anywhere else. Exploring the different cultures of Alaska is charming, as is wandering through the stunning nature here.

Things to Do in Alaska

One of the best things to do in Alaska is to try to conquer Mount Denali - a 20,310 foot mountain that is the largest on the entire North American continent. It is generally recommended that only experienced mountaineers with excellent levels of physical fitness attempt to summit Denali, but casual travelers can explore lower-altitude trails that lead around the base, or simply uncover the history and background of the mountain at the Denali museum nearby.

It is not every day that travelers are able to see glaciers floating, or even try climbing on top of them, but Alaska is one place adventurers can do that. Enjoy a scenic boat ride through the Inside Passage past incredible glacial scenery, or go hiking through Kenai Fjords National Park, an expansive place where stunning wildlife can be viewed.

Best Time to Visit Alaska

Alaska is a very cold place, as expected, so the best time to visit is during the warmer months of May through September.
