Traveling in Alaska

Many travelers are simply dying for an unforgettable adventure, which can’t be found in crowded touristy areas. People can get closer to the nature by going to remote places. Other than lush rainforest of South America and savanna of Africa, we may also go to Alaska to see mountains, sea, snow and evergreen forest. Although much of the state is consisted of mountains and tundra, there are many interesting things that we can experience and see.

A glimpse of bald eagles and moose is an added bonus for travelers who go to remote places of Alaska. When backpacking through Alaska, we should make sure to bring enough items. Backpackers could have enough flexibility to choose their own adventure destinations, no matter how remote they are.

Another exciting summer activity that we can do in Alaska is sea kayaking. In coves with gentle breeze and waves, we may use kayak to watch huge chunks of ice that splash to the ocean. The Walrus Island is a popular attraction and we will be able to see these furry sea mammals. To see more Alaskan wildlife, we could also participate in hiking trips. There are also activities that we can do in winter, such as dog sledding. We may watch races of dog sledding or participate in short dog sledding trips. Siberian huskies are used for dog sledding in Alaska and they are highly trained to bring us through the vast expanse of snowy forest and plains.  Fjord exploration is an exciting things that we could do during early spring. It’s the time when glacier starts to melt. We may find something that is similar in Iceland and Greenland. There are many things that we can see in Alaska and we should be thankful of what we see.

However, it is still likely to get sweaty during a long summer day, especially if perform intense physical activities.
