Among the many things to do in Alaska there are some MUST DO things in this state that should be included in your itinerary. In the most popular destinations like Anchorage, Seward, Denali and Fairbanks, we will list for you, the top attractions for you to make your vacation unique among all others.
Anchorage Alaska offers many tours in the city itself, however; think of it as more of a jumping off point. The Must do adventure in Anchorage is taking a flight-seeing bear viewing trip. In that mouthful of words, you will see the same in real-life, a bear with a mouthful of fish! It IS more amazing to see in person then on TV. Imagine the size of the Grizzly Bear (1000 pounds) now picture the size of the salmon (ranging 30-40 pounds)… yes, it is that intense! The best bear viewing tours to go on will fly you out to a location; you will get out of the floatplane and take a boat to a secure bear viewing area.
Seward Alaska is the landing zone, come and get your cruising on! From here, you can see the largest concentration of the largest mammals on Earth. Take a full-service- day-cruise to see Gray Whales with a little glacier viewing while you’re out. You might see a Killer Whale pod on the way – there is a possibility to go Kayaking.
Denali National Park, the heart and soul of Alaska. Denali, Mt McKinley, shooting upwards over 20,000 feet. Daunting. Come see the big five (six if you count Denali) Dall Sheep, Brown Bears, Caribou, Wolves and the Alaska Moose (largest deer on Earth). Take the Denali Backcountry Adventure and try your luck and at seeing them all in one day. To make this monumental, take a flight-seeing trip through the six million acres.
For the true bucket list connoisseur, you will need to get the certificate. From Fairbanks, take a wonderfully guided trip to Prudhoe Bay aka Deadhorse. Take a few deep breaths, hug yourself and dive in. You will receive your certification of passing the Arctic Circle not to mention some really great bragging rights!
The great adventure of Alaska, there is something for everyone.
