Best Places to Visit in Alaska
There is a school of thought that this 49th state of the Union is a land, a region, a continent unto itself. 3000 salmon-rich rivers cut through the landscape, and Lake Iliamna is as large as Connecticut! Never mind Iceland, did you know that Fairbanks has on average 243 nights of the magnificent Northern Lights per year? Alaska has 17 of USA’s 20 highest peaks, including Mt. Denali, the country’s highest. Do a Flightsee Tour over this magical landscape of bountiful glaciers, or come face-to-face with a wild beast on a meticulously conducted Bear Tour. Watch ice calve off glacial cliff-faces or a whale leap the water surface; marvel at the stunning Alpenglow of the midnight sun or inhale a lungful of fresh sun-baked Tundra earth for that unique smell of this paradise.
