You might expect stunning landscapes framed by towering, snow-capped mountains. You’ll be anticipating the sight of vast, blue-white glaciers, sparkling lakes that stretch off to the horizon and precipitous fjords lined with darkly brooding forests.

From Anchorage to Cooper Landing, from Denali National Park to Fairbanks, from McCarthy to Valdez, Alaska is packed with gigantic surprises and astonishing sights.
