Alaska, one of the least populated cities is the largest states in United States in terms of area. If you expect to see igloos in Alaska, It's going to be tough for you because even though Alaska is full of ice and snow, summer warms up quite nicely. It is located in the extreme northwestern part of the North American continent. Alaska has a longer coastline than all other U.S States. Its territorial waters touch Russia's territorial waters in the Bering Strait. The north slope of Alaska is mainly tundra with small villages scattered here and there. The northern part of Alaska is famous for crude oil. It is a land of wonder and adventure. It is divided into four different regions namely Inside Passage, South central, Interior, Far North and Southwest. The state comprises of a broad range of cities and towns. It is filled with unique activities, culture and attractions. The landscaping has been done in such a way that there are lots of parks and public lands which offer outdoor adventures and fun. These outdoor adventures can be light to intense. You could go for a picnic near an Ice age glacier or you could add to the adventure by rafting a raging river. You could experience excitement by boarding a sternwheeler or try hand fishing for salmon or halibut. There is also an option to view the breathtaking North American mountains. If you prefer driving, you could travel along the glacier filled river.

During summers it's altogether a different picture. You can get to watch some of the incredible scenery in the United States. If you really want to enjoy what Alaska has to offer you must get out and explore it for yourself. For cyclers, joggers and walkers, the trails of Alaska are a treat. Here arts, culture and history are all very much blended to one another because of its fascinating past. You can visualize its culture from native music and dance performances. Here art is celebrated in every form in shows, festivals and workshops all year long. The most popular ocean day cruises in Alaska are destinations such as Glacier Bay, Kenai Fjords and Prince William Sound. Alaska is the only place where you can find wolves, grizzly bears, orcas, lynx, moose, and hundreds of other rare and endangered species in their original and undisturbed natural habitats.

In Alaska you will find hotels which you can find in any other part of North America with one small difference. Wondering what it is? Convenience is the answer. You can get amenities such as transportation, restaurants, health spas, business centers and swimming pools at many of the larger establishments. The smaller motels will offer many of the same facilities with local twists which you can't find anywhere else.

Winter is not the time for Alaskans to sleep. It's time for celebration. They participate in limitless outdoor activities and arts and cultural activities that brings out the best in them. In winter there is around 6 to 13 hours of daylight. The daylight increases rapidly in the early spring. Alaska's most famous winter experiences include dog mushing, northern lights viewing, snowboarding and skiing (Nordic and alpine), snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and sports and cultural events. For shopaholics and visitors who wish to collect souvenirs on their way back home there are handcrafted pieces such as authentic Alaska Native moccasins, baskets, jewelry, carvings and both traditional and modern art pieces. You can find them at retail stores, museum gift shops, galleries and farmers markets throughout Alaska. With increasing number of visitors and tourists security is also a major concern. Most of these shops are protected by security systems from security providers such as ADT Alarm Systems. To sum it up, at the end of your trip, you will feel rejuvenated and very much alive. Bon voyage!
