1201 E Whitney Rd, Anchorage, AK 99501, USA
There are not very many roads through the interior of Alaska, and even fewer rail lines. The main Alaska Railroad line runs from Seward, through Anchorage, to Fairbanks, through pristine Alaskan wilderness. Breathtaking views of Denali (Mount...

1512 Sawmill Creek Rd, Sitka, AK 99835, USA
I have cruised on ships of all sizes, ranging from a small chartered yacht, to a ship holding over 4,000 passengers. For my first trip to Alaska, I wanted a smaller ship to experience the Inside Passage and Glacier Bay for the first time,...

Inside Passage, Juneau, AK 99801, USA
Juneau sits within the Inside Passage in southeast Alaska made up of islands - thousands of them. Getting from one place to the next doesn’t consist of road time as much as air time. People living in Alaska depend on airplanes for mail, for food,...

Inside Passage, Alaska, USA
Alaska had long been on my travel wish list. When our alumni group made the trip I was thrilled to be able to join them. We were on Oceania Cruise Lines---- a company I can highly recommend! Excellent experience! Given the various cruise mishaps...
Save Place
Inside Passage, Alaska, USA
Statistics show that over 60% of all visitors to Alaska arrive by ship. Although we’ve taken cruises in the past, the idea of seeing “The Last Frontier” from a large cruise ship didn’t hold much appeal. Our priority was to experience the region’s...

Juneau, AK, USA
I ran out of space to include places to Eat, to Stay and Do in Juneau and surrounding towns! *We flew Alaska Seaplanes based in Juneau. They are wonderful and so are all the pilots. *I wish we had at least a week to spend in Haines. Add this place...
Save Place
Parks Hwy, Denali National Park and Preserve, AK, USA
Though the outing takes some advanced prep and plenty of gear (rain gear is a must), biking the road that runs into Denali National Park—or even just a short section of it—provides plenty of up-close-and-personal time in the park....

599 Mt Hood Dr, Girdwood, AK 99587, USA
I'm obsessed with being in the air. From the A380 to hot air balloons, the higher the better. So when I wanted to shoot glaciers for my ongoing project about all things ice, this helicopter trip was one of the best things I could've asked for. Up...

Mile Marker 92 Denali Park Road, Denali, AK 99755, USA
A friend from college had worked and lived in Alaska for many years and invited me to come and visit in the fall. Keep in mind, that "fall" in the tundra is mid-August to mid-September (snow will fly by October). I had been to Alaska before and...
Save Place
Kasaan, AK, USA
A slight drizzle is falling through the forest canopy as our guide stops us and points out the first massive totem peaking through the trees. I’m in Kasaan, Alaska, a remote Haida village of about 60 people. Our guide, Fred Olson, is the Cultural...

3978 Homer Spit Rd, Homer, AK 99603, USA
The “halibut fishing capital of the world” lived up to its billing. We booked a half-day excursion with Bob’s Trophy Charters and successfully hauled in the maximum of two keepers per person. To cap it off, we brought some of our freshly fileted...
Save Place
St Paul, AK 99660, USA
To describe this archipelago of four islands as “remote” would be the understatement of the century. They sit in the middle of the Bering Sea, 300 miles from Alaska’s mainland. They’re part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. Finally,...

6000 Glacier Spur Rd, Juneau, AK 99801, USA
Stepping out of a helicopter onto the middle of an Alaskan glacier is pretty breathtaking. There are amazing blue ice caves to be explored, deep crevices full of crystal clear water you can drink, and an incredible expanse of white stretching to...

14865 Sterling Hwy, Cooper Landing, AK 99572, USA
Alaska is a beautiful state. It seemed no matter where we drove there were gorgeous views of mountains, forest, or waterways, and often wild anaimals. On our way from Anchorage to Homer we stopped at Gwin's Lodge for lunch. I love good sea food...

3978 Homer Spit Rd, Homer, AK 99603, USA
For my dad's 50th birthday I bought him roundtrip flights to Alaska. I knew I was going to be there on business and I had him fly out and meet me when he was done. We had a whole road trip planned. It included hitting up the Homer Spit. My dad...
