Alaska

Nobody will ever appreciate the glory of the North before they tour: it's difficult in seeing what it was like to cross Seward by the sea, stroll around Denali National Park, stay up until midnight basking in the sun fall, or never get to see the sun rise. Though Alaska is America’s biggest state — and a huge swath of it is from off road — you can't see everything in only a few weeks. Begin at Anchorage and explore the recently refurbished and ever-changing Anchorage Museum, then head to the secluded Kenai Fjords or the magnificent Chugach National Forest, or head down to Homer for one of the top independent food experiences in the state. If that's time to fly to Juneau or head north to Fairbanks to climb up a glacier, swim down a misty canyon, or rent a lodge and just hang out.

Best time to visit

The most excellent time to wander in Alaska is between mid-June and mid-September. The warm weather and long days make it a particularly nice time of year, with weather about mid-to - late teens.

The biodiversity of Alaska, including bears, sea otters, seals and whales, is apparent during this season, with either the greatest days to observe in June and July. At a certain time of year, the climate in Alaska is evolving quite rapidly. That being said, most excursions stop at the beginning of September, in anticipation of the winter season. It's better to miss the winter months, whether you're looking for winter activities, or to see the northern lights in the harsh season.

Major Attractions

1. Denali National Park: Denali is the most popular nature reserve in Alaska and host to the highest point in North America, upwards of 20,310 feet above sea level. Denali National Park, given its significance, remains surprisingly pristine. There's really one way in and out, and after Mile 15, most visitors ought to use the park-approved bus. Preservation essentially ensures that you can see any predator, including potential sightings of moss, bear, caribou, wolves, and Dall sheep. If you're going to Alaska in the winter, don't think about it: the park is open throughout the year.

2. Northern Lights Gaze: The Aurora Borealis appears in all sorts of colors and forms. The Northern Lights are almost always a-see, from the bright red that covers the entire sky to the orange and purple ribbons as if they were blown by the wind. Visit Alaska between October and March to have the highest opportunity of seeing the light show. The farther north you are, the better your chances are.

3. Kenai Fjords National Park: Alaska has far more beaches than that of the rest of the United States, so that any trip to the state will take a bit of time along the beach. Cruising a boat through Kenai Fjords National Park will give you the chance to enjoy several of the most spectacular marine life in the North, such as sea lions, orca whales, otters, marshes and a lot of seabirds. A lot of boat journeys linger for several minutes near the shore glacier in hopes of calving (whenever the ice falls into the water).

4. Drive the Alaskan Railway: sit back and also have an opportunity to celebrate the Alaskan mountains and wide-open scenery from the large windows of the lumbering train. The rail can bring you north from Anchorage to Denali National Park or south to seaside port cities such as Seward and Whittier. While you're in Skagway, you also can ride the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway, a historic track that runs up the mountains around the original Klondike Gold Rush Trail.
