4 Reasons Why Alaska Should Be On Your Travel Bucket List

Packed with majestic mountains, glaciers, lofty icebergs, stunning natural beauty, abundant wildlife, and unique native cultures and traditions, Alaska truly offers one of the richest travel experiences you can imagine. The largest state in the US, it is an unspoiled stretch of land that is home to some of the remotest uninhabited regions in the world. Here, nature continues as it has for hundreds of years, with negligible human interference. Unfortunately, not a lot of people think of the Last Frontier State as a possible vacation destination, which is why very few tourists venture out here, but that is a part of what makes this place so perfect. Here are a few other reasons why Alaska is worth visiting:

Natural beauty
We have all stared longingly at our desktop backgrounds of gorgeous sceneries of flowering meadows flanked by mountains reaching out to the heavens. Well, in Alaska, you can witness that with your own eyes. Alaska boasts of natural beauty that is like no other place on earth. Snow-clad mountains, valleys, fjords, tundra, lush green forests, pristine glaciers – you name it, and you will find it here.

Fishing
With an abundance of lakes and rivers dotting the state, Alaska is every fishing enthusiast’s mecca. You will rarely find so many water bodies teeming with various types of fishes as you will here. Kaktovik Arctic Tours offers fishing tours that will provide you with enough fishing stories to amuse your friends back home forever.

Wildlife
Nothing beats the sheer thrill and excitement of watching a polar bear hunting for food out on a vast glacier.
