ALASKA'S

wild side

A FROZEN PLAYGROUND OF NATURAL WONDERS AND MASSIVE IN EVERY SENSE, ALASKA IS PERHAPS THE MOST RUGGED FRONTIER ON THE PLANET.

A

world away from the typical tourist routes, Alaska is a holiday destination quite unlike any other. Leave your comfort

zone behind as your explore remote Alaskan communities and enormous national parks teeming with untouched wildlife.

TH E ARCT IC CIRCL E Far, far north, balanced on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, lies the town of Barrow, one of the largest native communities in Alaska. Between May and August, the sun never sets on Barrow, and the town is flooded in sunshine 24 hours a day. During these summer months, take a nature tour to catch a glimpse of polar bears, snowy owls and other fascinating creatures. The town is also rich in Alaska Native culture and history, with evidence suggesting human presence dates back to 800 AD. Coldfoot, an isolated Alaskan community, sits partway along the Dalton Highway, a stunningly scenic stretch of road made famous by the hit TV show, Ice Road Truckers. Coldfoot is unique in that it’s one of the few towns north of the Arctic Circle that is accessible by road. It’s a great base from which to explore the surrounding parks and experience the northern lights in all their shimmering majesty.

P EAK S AND PARK S Alaska is a showcase of jaw-dropping landscapes and untouched wildlife, and nowhere is this more evident than in its national parks. Denali National Park consists of six million acres and features dramatic, snow-capped peaks, rising to a crescendo with the 6194 metre Mount McKinley, the tallest mountain on the continent. If that’s still not big enough for you, check out Wrangell St. Elias National Park. Hosting a staggering 13.2 million acres (a good deal bigger than Denmark), Wrangell St. Elias is the largest national park in North America. Mountains, rivers and glaciers await you at every turn.

More than 1,000 vertebrate species can be found in Alaska, including bears, caribou, wolves, bald eagles and whales, among many others. 16
