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

Western Interior

The Western Interior is a vast area dominated by four wildlife refuges and a scattering of remote bush villages. The Yukon River winds through the region providing a connection between many communities. Galena is about 270 air miles west of Fairbanks and is a regional transport center for many of the surrounding villages as well as a staging area for trips into the Koyukuk, Kanuti, Nowitna and Upper Innoko National Wildlife Refuges. These three refuges are part of the vast roadless region that makes up much of northern and western Alaska.
