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


My husband and I drove from Everson, WA to Alaska, June 30th, arriving in Palmer, AK July 3rd (2300 miles.)  We drove up the Alcan Hwy. and saw numerous wild animals within 20 feet including black and grizzly bears, caribou, stone sheep, male and female moose.  We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the drive up except the first day we were in a tundra of ever lasting trees.  When we finally broke out of it the wait was well worth it. 

After spending a few days in Palmer visiting our son and his family, we all headed to Denali National Park.  We were in the heart of Alaska where there was beautiful scenery and warm sunny weather...On the way back to Palmer we stopped at the Talkeetna Moose Dropping Festival. The park was filled with crafts, food and music. It was a nice ending to our road trip.

We hope to drive up again, and we would recommend a vacation to Alaska.
