El monte McKinley, o “Denali”, se eleva en segundo plano, mientras los vehículos de recreación viajan por una carretera cercana al arroyo Trapper

In Alaska’s heartland, you’ll see the continent’s tallest peak, Mt. McKinley, and wide expanses of tundra. The forests are teeming with wildlife and bird life ranging from the formidable grizzly to stately herds of caribou to the state bird, the Willow Ptarmigan. Experience summer’s midnight sun or the winter’s northern lights. Wildlife can be seen on the highway that runs by Denali National Park, carrying visitors to and from Anchorage and Fairbanks. Interior is the original home of Alaska’s Athabascan Indians. Gold miners, farmers and fur trappers later discovered the riches of this region.

Visitor Comments

We had a great trip in August by taking a Land Sea Tour by Royal Caribbean. The land portion was by bus on some really great highways. I would advise anyone who is driving to watch your gas gauge, because it is a long way between gas stations. The sceneary was spectaular, and I would have seen even more if I had been driving. There are a lot of resorts, and plenty of good resturants along the way. Ketchcan was my favorite city. They had a spectacular train ride up the mountain side that followed the original route of the 49er Gold Miners. The tours by helicopter to the Glaciers was really great too. A great trip.
