With bears larger than bison, national parks the size of nations, and glaciers bigger than other US states, ‘epic’ barely does Alaska justice. Few other places in the US allow you to scale an unclimbed mountain, walk where no human foot has likely trodden before, or sally forth into a national park that gets fewer annual visitors than the International Space Station.

Alaska is a land for wilderness purists who wish to observe big fauna in its natural habitat. This is no place for the timid, but keep your wits about you and the musk oxen, grey wolves, bears, caribou and other creatures great and small will quietly accept you into their domain.
