Alaska

 

INTRODUCTION

The largest state in the USA, Alaska is a land abundant in natural beauty and wildlife and less people. From exploring the untouched wilderness to discovering frontier towns formed during America’s gold rush and to cruise the fjords of the Inside Passage, Alaska has a lot to offer. Welcome to the last frontier!

GETTING AROUND

Due to the difficult terrain, air travel is the most preferred mode of transport in Alaska. The national airline that services this large state is Alaska Airlines. From its hub in Anchorage, it serves the cities of Barrow, Fairbanks, Glacier Bay National Park, Juneau, Ketchikan, Nome etc. The ferries in Alaska also transport many passengers between the towns on the Gulf of Alaska and the Inside Passage. There is also the Alaska Highway that crosses the entire state from Delta Junction, Fairbanks to Dawson Creek, Canada.
