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.

Regional Explorer

Northeast Interior

Northeast Interior is off the beaten path and off the road system, but contains two Alaska treasures. The community of Fort Yukon is one of the older settlements in Alaska and remains the largest primarily Athabascan village in Alaska. An interesting and historical village, Fort Yukon sits on the Yukon River, is just north of the Arctic Circle and provides some of the best Northern Lights viewing from October through March.
