Discover Alaska

The Great Land has so much to offer. Get out and discover it!

Alaska and Glaciers I star
Glaciers are a big part of Alaska tourism. Understanding the very basics may help viewing them a little more interesting. There are over 100,000 of them covering 20,000 miles yet they only cover 5 per cent of the state. This article is part one of two, describing the many features of glaciers.

Alaska and Glaciers II star
So your tour guide has explained that you are looking at a temperate, tidewater, valley glacier. Well, “it’s beautiful”, you’re thinking, but what does all that even mean? Part II of Alaska & Glaciers will sort that out for you.

Autumn in Alaska star
Autumn in Alaska is a season of change. Golds and reds take over from the greens and blues of summer. Cool, crisp Fall rain, hunting season and the hint of termination dust replace sunshine, mosquitoes and summer fishing trips.

Kennel Tours in Alaska star
Watching the Iditarod for the first time, I've become seriously enamoured with the dogs and their mushers. If your trip to Alaska allows some free reign, consider working one of these kennel tours or adventures into your itinerary.

Northwest Passage star
The fabled Northwest Passage. Could there be a route, through the waters of the Arctic Ocean that would allow goods to move back and forth without having to sail around South America? How would this route affect Alaskans?

Oceans and Seas of Alaska star
The coastline of the state of Alaska, including islands, bays, fjords and open ocean shores, stretches for over 44,000 miles. To put this into perspective; if someone were to walk one thousand miles per year, it would take more than forty-four YEARS to hike Alaska’s entire coastline.

Regions of Alaska star
Alaska is roughly one-fifth of the size of The United States. So large in fact, discussions about it tend to revolve around what region something is located in. It is typically divided into 5 regions. This is just a brief glance into some of the characteristics of each.

Tourism Season star
From the first of May to about the third week in September, Alaska adds over 1.5 million people to its shores. So where do you begin? Alaska has so many opportunities to enjoy its history, beauty and rich culture, how can you possibly narrow down all of the choices?

Why Alaska? star
What it is about Alaska? Many have asked the question. Why does this place draw hundreds of thousands, every year from May to September, for a glimpse of the majesty that is Alaska? What would draw YOU here?

Winters in Alaska star
Alaska is a beautiful state. There are so many ways to see it. Cruise ship, train, helicopter, driving, boating, hiking, and camping all from late May to September. But what do you do in the winter? Believe it or not, you can do quite a bit.
