ACTIVITY RATING

Alaska is a nature lover’s utopia — ice-capped mountains, ancient forests, pristine lakes and rivers full of fish. Separated from the mainland by Canada’s British Columbia, it also happens to be the most sparsely populated state of the US… which makes it even more desirable for those who love the great outdoors.

The modern history of the region is fascinating. Various indigenous tribes roamed the region for thousands of years before the Russians established a settlement. The US government purchased Alaska from the Russian government in 1867 for 2c an acre - about $7 million! It became an official US territory in 1912 and official state - the US’s 49th State - in 1959. In the late 1960s, oil was discovered, and an oil boom soon followed. Pipelines, refineries, roads, townships, and other infrastructure soon followed. Today, agriculture, fishing, and tourism make up the primary industries. Alaska’s capital city, Anchorage, with a population of around 300,000, is 10 times the size of the nearest cities, Fairbanks and Juneau. The region is incredibly sparse, with vast wilderness and some small towns dotting the state.

Widely regarded as one of the most scenic places on the planet, there’s an abundance of wildlife to be spotted in Alaska. It’s most famous for the brown and black bears found in healthy numbers. You are almost guaranteed to see the bears depending on the regions you visit. Caribou, moose and bison (introduced from Montana) are also commonly spotted. The rivers are filled with trout and salmon. Watching bears feed during the spawning period is the classic Alaskan postcard. There are hundreds of bird species to be found – including the iconic national emblem – the American Bald Eagle, which is thankfully no longer on the endangered species list. Orca and various species of whales can also be spotted off the Alaskan Coast and Bering Sea.
