Alaska, America’s Last Frontier01 Oct 2015

 getthumbnail-1.phpIf your travels have not yet included Alaska, this is definitely a must-see for Americans as much of it is truly unspoiled–filled with wild game, great fishing, clean lakes and rivers, untouched forests and majestic mountain ranges.

Sailing through the many lush islands of the Inside Passage (which includes northern Washington, British Columbia and Alaska) certainly gives you a taste of Alaska’s pristine beauty, but it barely touches the surface of what Alaska has to offer. That is why a number of cruise lines offer land packages or cruisetours with many of their voyages. Why not include a few days visiting Denali State Park with its majestic Mount McKinley and abundant wildlife or Kenai’s Fjords? Activities on land are abundant ranging from fishing, dogsledding, 4-wheel adventures, sea kayaking, flightseeing, glacier exploration, bear viewing, cultural visits and much, much more.

Alaska is also one of the premier sights for the Northern Lights, with prime viewing between January–March, but often visible from September through mid-April. The area around Fairbanks is ideal for viewing this phenomenon of nature.

I traveled on an Alaskan cruise with my two sons when they were 10 and 14 and it was an adventure our entire family will treasure forever. Due to the short sailing season, cruises fill up fast so it is wise to reserve early. Let Gateway Destinations help find the perfect Alaskan adventure for you! Call us today at 602-923-1542.
