Alaskan Highlights SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Snow-capped peaks frame Anchorage, a frontier city that looks out onto icy waters and is surrounded by stunning wilderness and alpine parks. Home to the massive Harding Icefield, the captivating Kenai Fjords National Park is dominated by ice-blue glaciers, pristine waters and countless species of wildlife and plants.
The town of Valdez may be small in size, but it's enormous in stature with its importance as an oil and fishing town and its gorgeous surrounds.
Pristine wilderness and spectacular landscapes surround Maclaren Lodge, located along Denali Highway near the base of Maclaren Glacier and within the Maclaren River Valley.
Throw together epic glaciers, endless tundra, glassy lakes, wild animals and the tallest mountain in North America and you have Alaska's beautiful Denali National Park.
Anchorage, although not the state capital, is home to 40% of Alaska’s population and is the gateway to more than 40 wilderness parks.
