Visit Alaska- A Great Northern Quest
Alaska is a state which offers some of the most spectacular scenery and riveting wildlife in the entire Untied States. It has a rugged yet fragile beauty which appeals to the part of everyone's soul
which resonates with wilderness places. If you want to see America is all its variety, Alaska is surely one of the “must see” destinations.
Not only does Alaska offer the visitor endless natural beauty, there is also a rich indigenous culture, with five distinct ethnic groups which have maintained their traditional cultural life, ready to share with the discerning guest. Thrill to the dances and costumes, drawing richly on the animals of Alaska upon which the indigenous peoples historically depended.
The Glacier Bay National Park is one of the top attractions of the United States, yet wherever you go in the park, as in most of Alaska, you'll find miles and miles of wilderness that seems made just for you and you alone. Soaring mountains, magnificent glaciers, astonishing wildlife and, in the spring, brilliant wildflowers, transport the visitor to a wild and ageless place which at times seems unreal.
In the cities and towns of Alaska, you can explore fascinating museums and quaint historical buildings. Art galleries and craft shops offer the visitor some of the most beautiful and highest quality artifacts imaginable, many of which draw their inspiration from nature. Take a cruise along the coast of Alaska and watch whales sport and play in the icy blue and green waters, against a back-ground of soaring mountains, lonely peaks and massive tidewater glaciers.
Visitors to Alaska should make sure they have their cameras at the ready wherever they travel in the state. Whether you travel by road, rail, boat or air for your sightseeing, everywhere you look there is a splendid and awe inspiring view that you just have to preserve. And to make your visit complete, the people of Alaska are famously some of the friendliest in the world.
