When Do You Want To Go?

Alaska

Majestic, rugged, monumental, unforgiving, boundless – there are simply not enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe the sheer scale and beauty of Alaska. If the mystical fjords, the snow-capped mountains and the crystal-like glaciers alone are not enough to entice you to explore the United States’ ‘Last Frontier’ then how about the wildlife. Brown bears snatching salmon from freshwater rivers and lakes, unfathomably large caribou grazing on the vast plains and even polar bears and killer whales rank amongst Alaska’s fauna.

When considering an Alaskan holiday, the first thing to decide is whether you want to travel by sea or by land. A cruise along the coastal route (best experienced between the months of June and August) will be strewn with glaciers the size of cities and opportunity to reach areas that are literally impossible to explore any other way. Inland, travelling by car or train, will allow for greater flexibility and the best way to experience the interior natural beauty of Alaska at an unrushed pace.

The major towns and cities of Alaska which include Anchorage, Juneau and Fairbanks serve as gateways to the great national parks but also offer a glimpse into the pioneering ancestors of the state. Anchorage in particular, where over half of Alaska’s population live, is a thriving city on the fringes of wilderness, and the Museum of History and Art is not to be missed. 

In the shadows of North America’s tallest mountain, Mount McKinley, Denali National Park is perhaps Alaska’s ultimate wilderness, home to an abundance of wildlife and activities including dog-sledding, river boat trips, hiking and cycling which all help cement Denali as the perfect introduction for the first time visitor to Alaska. The dramatic landscapes of the Kenai Peninsular should also be considered, a region renowned for its tidewater glaciers, perfect for kayaking and fishing, and masses or marine wildlife. There are no shortage of options though in Alaska – Prince William Sound is located in the midst of the Chugach National Park and with its 2,500 miles of coastline is home to the towns and villages of Chenaga Bay, Cordove, Tatitlek, Whittier and Valdez, all of which will impact lasting memories of the uniqueness of Alaska.
