Alaska is an American state which requires no introduction. From the moment you depart Anchorage you enter the wilderness where there are more bears than humans, and views which most people find hard to describe. Most simply put, Alaska is a nature lovers and photographer’s paradise! Alaska is one of the remaining bastions of pure wilderness, best explored on foot and small plane. Your journey begins in the frontier city of Anchorage and a hike in nearby Chugach State Park, then you leave city life behind in favour of a world where nature runs the show. Untouched national parks, electric blue glaciers, endless wildlife sightings and stunning fjords unfold daily in the 49th state. This is the perfect place to lace up your hiking boots and walk some truly beautiful trails. Did you know in Denali National Park, rangers encourage you to break away from the trail in favour of making your own. In Wrangell-St Elias National Park you have an excellent chance of seeing bear, glaciers and wild Alaska beauty, all within the space of a day. In Seward, youll hike Harding Icefield Trail to Exit Glacier, a personal favourite of the Ramblers Product Manager, Iain Shiels. Spotted on previous visits to Alaska are black bear, grizzly bear, whales, porpoise, and all manner of birdlife. It is not uncommon to see animals on the hiking trails; after all this is their playground. In Denali you have included use of the park bus so you can navigate further spaces in the park on foot and on four wheels. These bus rides are€companied by a ranger who will stop during animal sightings and give a commentary. No trip to Alaska is complete without experiencing the Alaska taxi with return by small plane rides into Wrangell-St Elias for three nights. You would think that nothing could better Alaskan views, that is until you witness them from the air. This is a holiday for the traveller and has a pioneer status to indicate the spirit of adventure, as things may not always go as expected. Hotel standards are not as fancy as the lower 48 states, roads are not as smooth, food options not as varied, but the experience is certainly larger than life. Come explore and experience the Alaskan wilderness with Ramblers Walking Holidays!
