The isolated polar wilderness of Alaska reigns as one of the most fascinating areas of the United States. Head up past Canada into the Arctic Circle and experience its rare scenery and wild soul on a luxury Alaska holiday of a lifetime.
Adventurers must go forth unafraid of its wild frontiers. Be willing to forge dazzling glaciers, race on dog sleds, and helicopter over massive vistas to reach its great stretches of protected national parks and wildlife refuges. The intrepid are rewarded for their daring with some of the most pristine natural beauty on the planet.
Alaska is both the largest and the northernmost state in the United States. This rugged swath of tundra is also a volcanic playground containing the highest mountain peak in North America, Denali, also known as Mount McKinley. A summit of the mountain can take two to four weeks for skilled climbers, but a visit to Denali National Park to stand in its impressive presence is rewarding in its own right.
Within Alaska’s borders you’ll find a whopping 24 national parks and preserves to keep your senses busy. Check out Denali in the interior, and track through the protected habitat of brown bears in Katami National Park. Glacier Bay National Park runs the geological gamut, loaded with glaciers, fjords, mountains, and forest shaping its 3.3 million acres.
The local experience features fly-fishing in salmon rivers, whale watching in the frigid waters, and sightings of caribou, moose, and bears in their natural surroundings. Skilled private guides come standard on a Ker & Downey journey to Alaska, keenly in tune with their wonderland and eager to share.
Our Alaska experience also offers you a peek into the world of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Hear stories from the trail from past mushers and even learn to drive a team of sled dogs to gain a greater appreciation of this tradition. If you cannot wait to embark on a luxury Alaska holiday, contact us and we will whisk you into the wilderness.
