Ask yourself this question: at some point in life, will I visit Alaska? If you’re like a lot of people, Alaska is one of those “bucket list” items to “do someday.”
It’s a good time, now, to visit Alaska and hire a guide from the 1st Alaska Outdoor School. He or she can take you to places you’ve only dreamed about or saw in pictures.
The beauty of Alaska is unparalleled. It’s like visiting another world. Indeed, one of the main reasons people visit Alaska is because of its breathtaking scenery. Twice the size of Texas, Alaska has less than a million residents, and most of them live in Anchorage. That means you can go into the Alaskan wilderness and not see any people for days!
You will, however, encounter wildlife in their natural habitat. Kodiak Island is known for its brown bears. Haines, Alaska, is full of bald eagles. And moose are seemingly everywhere in Alaska—sometimes even walking the streets of Anchorage!
Have you ever dreamed of scaling a huge mountain? Alaska has 17 of the 20 tallest mountains in North America, and many people want to see the most famous, tallest one of all: Mt. McKinley.
People often assume Alaska is covered in ice, but that’s not true. There are, however, more than 100,000 glaciers. At Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve in southeast Alaska you can see 50 glaciers as they flow down to the sea. Imagine yourself seeing walls of ice moving from land to sea—now that’s unforgettable!
Nature is truly wonderful in Alaska. The Northern Lights can often be seen from many spots in Alaska—it’s as if colorful dancing lights take over the nighttime skies to entertain you.
Wouldn’t it be cool to tell your friends you’ve been to the Arctic Circle—and lived to tell about it?
1st Alaska Outdoor School can take you there! Based out of Fairbanks, 1st Alaska Outdoor School helps tourists from the “lower 48” experience the joy and wonder of Alaska’s natural beauty. Don’t “go at it alone.” Visit Alaska with a smart guide from 1st Alaska Outdoor School.
