Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve
To say that Glacier Bay National Park is expansive would be an understatement. This 3.3 million-acre park features mountains, glaciers, coastlines, fjords, and temperate rainforest. Your travel agent might recommend a ranger-led walk along its trails or a camping and mountaineering trip. Many people enjoy viewing the majestic glaciers from aboard a cruise vessel.
Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve
This preserve is home to one of the world’s largest populations of bald eagles. You can admire America’s national symbol from the designated parking areas along Haines Highway or you might prefer to stroll along the two-mile riverside trail. You’ll also likely catch a glimpse of other Alaskan wildlife, including moose, swans, and mountain goats. The late fall and early winter is the best time of the year to view the bald eagles.
If you’re planning an adventurous camping and hiking trip, your travel agent will almost certainly recommend the Chilkoot Trail. During the gold rush, this 33-mile trail provided one of the primary routes to the Klondike. Only experienced hikers and campers should attempt this trail; it’s considered a challenging hike and typically takes three to five days.
Complete your vacation or honeymoon trip to Alaska with a visit to the town of North Pole. Located southeast of Fairbanks, this city is home to the Santa Claus House, a popular gift shop.
