Why You Should Visit Alaska?

For many people, travelling to the more extreme points of the Northern hemisphere is their lifelong dream. Other than Scandinavian countries, Alaska is also another place you can visit. It’s a part of the United States known for its untamed beauty and harsh conditions, especially during long winter months. However, during the summer, it could become a magical land that excite and inspire many people to come. The most common way to visit Alaska is via air. There are different places where Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is the most likely place for you to land. However, more exotic places like Lake Hood is probably the busiest base for seaplanes in the whole world. There are plenty of airstrips that you can find all around Alaska, allowing you to get a bird’s eye view on the surrounding landscape.

Many parts of Alaska are also reachable using the Alaska Highway and you may go through the border to Canada. In urban centers of Alaska, like Anchorage, you will get enough paths for bike and pedestrians. In more remote areas, you should be able to use ATVs quite easily. Trains are also major means of transportation in Alaska and due to the natural beauty of Alaska, you won’t regret your choice. There are plenty of rivers and streams in Alaska, allowing many people, especially natives to reach settlements using remote boats. You should also be able to enjoy the grand cruise ship trip, which is quite beautiful. This should be a good opportunity to check out the wildlife of Alaska and its beautiful glaciers. Larger cruise ships could accommodate up to 3000 passengers, but if you prefer the less crowded ones, you should choose the one with only 500 passengers.

However, there are many things that you should be able to enjoy in larger cruise ships. As an example, you will have more selections for pampering and relaxations. There are more options for dining experience and sporting amenities. With smaller cruise ships, you will have more privatized experience. In order to better enjoy the nature, you should choose ships that offer observation lounges. These areas on the ship should be a perfect spot for you to watch whales, sea lions and bears on the shore. You should make sure that these cruise ships allow you to admire the majestic icy mountains and glaciers of Alaska. This will provide you with something definitely compared to typical tropical cruises, especially those commonly found in the Caribbean.

Alaska is also known for its tasty cuisine. The Alaskan king crabs are typical foods that come to our mind when we visit the country. You may also try different dishes made from fresh Alaskan salmon. Wild salmons taste quite different compared to farmed ones. Alaska is also known for its reindeer sausage, which is an important source of protein to natives. Despite its frigid climate, visitors should be impressed by the warmth of people in Alaska. There are many activities that you can enjoy, such as biking, kayaking, hiking and hunting.
