Alaska is a beautiful state with much to offer to everyone. It is also a very large state with more land area than California and Texas combined. Because of this it is recommended that careful planning for your trip be made in advance so that you may make best use of your time here. To help you in your recreational choices, a variety of web sites have been collected that will highlight your options, and the means with which to enjoy them. Further, these sites have been broken down into three categories, within Anchorage, north of Anchorage, and south of Anchorage respectively.
Within the Anchorage Area
Anchorage is a great jumping off point for Alaskan adventures, as well as offering many indoor and outdoor activities within the city limits. The city is situated on a peninsula of land abutted by the Alaska Range to the east and the Turnagain Arm and Knik Arm of Cook Inlet to the south and north. The city has hundreds of miles of bike paths as well as several public parks. Following are a set of links for attractions in the Anchorage area as well as transportation services available from Anchorage.
Alaska Airlines is the major air carrier in Alaska serving most locations within as well as outside the state.
Alaska Railroad has many passenger services, and is possibly the most convenient means of transportation.
Most of the major car rental services are to be found in Anchorage, however some charge per mile charges (which can come to a substantial amount when you consider a round tip to Fairbanks is more than 850 miles) or have travel restrictions so be sure of the terms before you rent a vehicle.
Those planning trips to the road accessible parts of Alaska, such as the Kenai Peninsula, Denali, or McCarthy, might consider a
RV rental to combine the costs of a motel and vehicle. However Denali National Park charges an entrance fee for RV's that should be added into your costs (this fee is usually included in package tours such as those provided by Princess Tours or The Alaska Railroad).
Milepost is a handy travel guide, and offers tips and directions to almost anywhere in Alaska.
cruise lines have offices in Anchorage, and offer both cruises through the inside passages of Prince William Sound, and bus tours of Alaska's interior.
Several float plane charters,such as
Northern Air Guides, offer float plane trips into the bush from Lake Hood, the largest float plane airport in the world.
Alaska Native Heritage Center is a new museum dedicated to the history of native Alaskans.
Chugach National Forest encompasses most of the region to the south and east of Anchorage, and has hundreds of miles of hiking trails.
The University of Alaska
Campus Center rents a wide variety of outdoors equipment including tents, canoes and kayaks, backpacks, and mountain bikes.
Any one considering sport fishing or hunting trips should contact
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and determine the regulations specific to your interests as they may vary widely from region to region.
Department of Transportation offers information services for Alaska's highway system.
The Region South of Anchorage
The area south of Anchorage is accessible by the Seward Highway (claimed by many to be the most scenic highway in America). The highway follows the Turnagain Arm for forty miles past alpine villages before turning south into the world famous
Kenai Peninsula. The Kenai Peninsula is home to quaint colonial
Russian villages as well as world class salmon fisheries. Following are links to recreation in the areas south of Anchorage.
The city of
Girdwood is approximately forty miles south in an arctic valley of the Alaska Range. Its main feature is the ski resort
Alyeska. Girdwood is also near the entrance to
Portage Glacier, and the tunnel entrance to
Valdez is the end of the Alaska Pipeline and the nearest deep water port. Valdez is generally best accessible by boat or rail.
Exit Glacier is a large land locked glacier that is easily accessible from the road.
At the end of the peninsula the communities of
Seward host a variety of fishing charters and wildlife tours in the pristine Resurrection and
Across the bay from Homer is the small Russian fishing village of
Seldovia which is accessible by ferry from Homer.
Included are a few links for charter services, however several different services exist. Some of which offer halibut and salmon fishing charters so you may want to find a charter service which will most suite your needs.

The Region North of Anchorage
The area North of Anchorage can be reached by the Glenn Highway. This highway passes first through the
Matanuska-Susitna (Mat-Su) Valley, which is the home of the bedroom communities of Palmer and Wasilla. The highways then separate, and the Glenn Highway heads toward the Canadian border while the Parks Highway turns north towards Denali National Park and Fairbanks. Following are a series of links for this region.
Just outside of Wasilla is the old gold rush mining area of
A few miles North of Wasilla is the dog mushing community of
Talkeetna from which
flight seeing tours of Denali can be found.
Denali National Park covers most of the region between Talkeetna and Fairbanks. This is one of the most beautiful sites in Alaska as well as one of the most accessible. It is therefore highly recommended to all visitors. However hotel and transportation space can become scarce in the summer months. It is therefore advised that advance preparations be made.
Just inside the northern boundary of Denali National Park on the slopes of McKinley is the community of
Healy, where many of the bus tours stop and embark.
Fairbanks is a mid sized community based around the main branch of the UA system, and Fort Wainwright Army Base. Fairbanks has many gold rush era sites and attractions.
North of Fairbanks are several hot springs resorts, of which
Chena Hot Springs is most accessible by road. These resorts are especially popular in the wintertime when one can enjoy an outdoor hot tub under the northern lights in sub freezing temperatures.
The mining town of
McCarthy is an isolated village centered at the abandoned Kennicot copper mine. Located 60 miles east of the native village of Chitina, it is only accessible by road in the summer (and requires a tram ride so bring your hiking shoes). The village is situated in the middle of the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, which includes the Harding Ice Fields.
