ALASKA

HIGHLIGHTS OF ALASKA: 

 

This is a destination on EVERYONE’s bucket list and rightfully so.  Alaska is breathtaking with nature shining through in every direction.   For your first visit to Alaska we recommend a cruise & land package.  Personal experience and hearing from clients one thing is consistent that they wish they had more time to experience all that Alaska has to offer.  We do recommend you book early and speak with a travel expert before narrowing down on a specific itinerary.    

 

Alaska is the 49th state in the United States. It was controlled mostly by Russia until 1867 when U.S Secretary of State Seward purchased it for $7.2 million.  That is two cents an acre.  It is the largest state.  It is bounded in the north by the Beaufort Sea and the Arctic Ocean; to the east the Canada’s Yukon Territory; the east by British Columbia; to the south by the Alaska and Pacific Ocean; the west the Bering Strait.  The capital is Juneau.  

 

Mt. McKinley, renamed to Denali is the tallest mountain in North America at 20,320 feet.  Alaska has 17 of the 20 highest peak in the United States.  

 

Alaska experiences over 5,000 earthquakes each year.  The strong earthquake recorded in North America was in March of 1964 with a magnitude of 9.2 located in the Prince William Sound.

 

BEST TIME TO VISIT ALASKA:

 

Best time to visit Alaska is between May and September.  The days are longer and nature is in full bloom.
