If nature and wildlife spotting is your thing, Alaska is the place for you. There’s no greater feeling than witnessing immense creatures in their natural habitat. And with Alaska being home to some of the most awe-inspiring animals in the world, you’ll be feeling pretty amazing.
The brown bear is one of the most iconic beasts in Alaska but there are so many more species to look out for, including humpback whales, lynx, wolves, moose, bald eagles and puffins. Alaska’s landscape is equally as diverse as the wildlife, with sprawling wilderness, volcanoes, frozen tundra, snow-covered mountains, fjords and glaciers.
If it’s culture you’re looking for, you’ll find it here in bucket loads. From colourful festivals to cultural and historical museums that teach you about the state’s rich past, the traditions are deep rooted in day-to-day life. While local shops display artisan crafts, annual festivals feature native dances, music and totem carving.
