discover the best parks and attractions in alaska

The heartland of Alaska is a landscape of desolate tundra, where the majestic Mount McKinley looms. Denali Park is the key park here - a 6 million-acre wonderland of mountains and wildlife. The Inupiat Eskimo country of the Far North is accessible via Anchorage or Fairfields and combines natural wonders with gold rush history. The Southwest offers the rugged scenery of the Katmai National Park and the infamous Brooks Falls, where grizzly bears swipe salmon from the river during the summer months. Kodiak Island and the archipelago of the national reserve is also a grizzly bear haven where some 3,000 of these ten feet high beasts reside. The south central region is a magical place where you can cruise the fjords and hike the Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords, or explore some of the immensely vast Wrangell St Elias, which is true Alaskan backwater replete with wildlife and stunning scenery.

For such a vast terrain with broad geographical ranges, the number of attractions is astounding and each listed below offers different activities and opportunities at every turn.
