Denali's National Park – slightly larger than the entire state of Massachusetts
and teeming with an amazing array of sub-arctic wildlife – consistently ranks
as Alaska's most popular tourist destination.
Dubbed "Alaska's Golden Heart", Fairbanks is located just 200 miles south of the
Artic Circle. Highlights include the opportunity to pan for gold and tours of an
authentic Athabascan Indian village.
ALYESKA / TALKEETNA
Alyeska, once a thriving mining town, is now a favorite among nature lovers and
trail hikers. Three glacier-fed rivers converge in Talkeetna, the staging area for
climbers beginning an ascent of Mt. McKinley.
