Alaska is a part of the USA, though this vast state is north-west of Canada and just a little way off the far eastern reaches of Russia. You are probably building a picture in your mind of snow-capped mountains, swathes of forest, long stretches of deserted road and plenty of places to get active outdoors and feel the cool rush of wind on your face as a warm rush of adrenaline surges through your body.
Alaska is all this and much more. It’s also got unique culture and traditions, festering volcanoes and an abundance of amazing wildlife such as bears, whales, caribou, eagles, moose and mountain goats.
The majority of tourist destinations within Alaska are located in the south of the state, and whilst it is possible to make use of car hire to get around, using alternative transportation such as the Alaska Railroad, cruises and flight-seeing excursions can help in discovering what the vast Alaskan landscape has to offer.
Alaska is known for its natural beauty and is a prime destination for viewing the Aurora Borealis, one of the most beautiful natural occurrences.
