Things to do in Alaska
Imagine flying into Katmai National Park on a floatplane and a curious grizzly swims out into the bay to meet you. Or sailing around the fjords and a humpback whale creates some extra waves by projecting into the icy air? Or you are so taken by the magnificent sight of salmon heading upstream on one of natureís most miraculous migrations, that you forget the fate that awaits many of them, as they find their fate in the claws of awaiting Kodiak bears? Welcome to Alaska. Itís wild out there.
The majority of people living in Alaska are indigenous peoples, or Alaska Natives. With strong traditions of subsistence living, activity, cultural and nature led tourism are now becoming a growing part of community life. Especially in wilderness areas, where the majority of the residents are Alaskan Native.
Camp or cabin is the way to stay in Alaska. Forget your 4* multinational. This is a place to bed down under the stars, float to sleep as you sail down a fjord, or tuck up in a mountain cabin, waking up to crisp air and blue skies, and the sound of eagles soaring overhead.
