Places to Go




In Alaska’s heartland, you’ll see the continent’s tallest peak, Denali, 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 took an Alaskan cruise in May aboard the Oosterdam, which is a Holland America ship.  The whole trip was fantastic.  I would do it again in a minute.  The ship was beautiful, the people wonderful, the food great and the itinerary fabulous.  Our cabin did not have a balcony...because we were so busy doing other things outside of the cabin.  The only thing I had to complain about was the rainy weather.  It was very early in the season, so we couldn't do anything about that.  The scenery was so spectacular, we hardly minded the weather.  We saw lots of wildlife-whales, sea otters, bald eagles, many kinds of bears, and seals.  I plan on taking another cruise with the same cruise line in the future.  If you have a chance, go for it!
