By far the largest state in the USA, Alaska offers profoundly beautiful national parks, superb wildlife and charming pioneer townships.
The dramatic coast of Alaska is literally strewn with gigantic glaciers with stand-out attractions including the Glacier Bay National Park and the Hubbard Glacier, a staggering wall of ice over 5 miles wide. Inland you’ll find the vast Denali National Park, home to North America's highest peak, Mount McKinley.
The wildlife is also astonishing with bears, elk and moose often sighted. At sea, humpback whales and pods of orcas are common companions and majestic bald eagles can be found nesting in shoreline forests.
Alaska’s towns contain fascinating glimpses of their pioneering history and are the gateway for some incredible experiences. Ride the Alaska Railroad Anchorage, explore the jaw-dropping Misty Fjord National Monument from Ketchikan or head out into the wilderness by dog sled from Juneau.Trailfinders is the UK’s No.1 for Alaska cruising and many of our Travel Consultants have first-hand experience.
