It’s easy to forget that Alaska is a sparsely populated state, but its remote, inhospitable climate and rugged geography makes for some of the most beautiful travel destinations on the planet.
From the North Slope in the north, to the Ketchikan and Bering Seas in the south, to Kodiak and the northern reaches of the Columbia River, to Denali National Park in the west, Alaska is known for its breathtaking scenery, rugged landscapes and deep, rugged soul.
It’s a place where you can take a wild ride on a remote mountaintop, drive a remote, remote-sited, remote motor home, or drive from a remote fishing village.
There are more than a million miles of trails and over 100 different wildlife species.
Alaskans have also built a thriving tourism industry, which includes fishing, ski trips, fishing, fishing boats, kayaking, kayak tours, kayaks, canoeing, rafting, boating, and more.
