With gold-rush towns that have barely changed in over a century, and national parks the size of countries providing a wilderness habitat for grizzly bears, moose and wolves, Alaska is an escape from the modern world. Our specialists have visited the main sights in Alaska, as well as its quieter areas. They’ll use their first-hand knowledge to help you decide on the best places to visit for your tailor-made trip.
Anchorage is Alaska’s largest city, yet it’s surrounded by mountains, forests and tranquil waters. You can contrast this more modern settlement with the gold-rush towns of Skagway and McCarthy, where original wooden buildings paint an accurate picture of life here during the 19th century. But perhaps the highlight of an Alaska holiday is venturing into wilderness areas like Denali National Park to see glaciers and rarely seen wildlife.
