Alaska is one of the world’s last true wilderness destinations. It’s the largest state in the Union, accounting for one fifth of the USA's total land area, but has a lower population than Rhode Island (the smallest). This vast land is largely untamed, with ancient forests, rivers full of salmon, majestic peaks and some of the largest land mammals roaming freely.
Getting around Alaska takes time, since distances are great, but with virtually empty roads and scenery on all sides it's also a dream to get around with a hire car. Also not to be missed is the Alaska Railroad, running from Anchorage to Fairbanks via Denali National Park. Alternatively, if you would rather explore with an experienced guide, then an escorted tour is a good option. Either way, you'll find that Alaska is a magical destination that you are unlikely ever to forget.
