Alaska's National Parks

2016 marked the 100th anniversary of national parks in the United States, and Alaska is one of the best places to celebrate. With 8 national parks, some of them covering more land than an entire European country (or two, or three), raw and wild nature is yours to explore. View wildlife such as grizzly bears and caribou herds, gawk at some of the tallest mountains in North America, or discover the history of a region at a comfortable visitor center. And the parks not only protect wild land and ecosystems, but also Alaska's rich cultural history.

We’ve highlighted some national parks from each of Alaska’s regions. Read More
