Alaskan Nature and Wildlife
Whether you see Anchorage by plane or go on a helicopter tour of the wilderness, you can expect to see some incredible views of an environment that is totally unique. Because of its geographical location and climate, the nature in Alaska is unlike anywhere else. Seeing glaciers, for example, is an experience that most people cannot say they have ever had. But there is also abundant wildlife in the area that stirs wonder in nature enthusiasts and beginning explorers alike.
When you take a tour of the area, you can rest assured that you will see all the best sights. With the guidance of an experienced tour guide, you will have access to sights, scents, and sounds that you would have trouble finding on your own. Because of the individualistic nature of the territory, it is well worth your time and money to invest in a thorough guided tour. What’s more, you get to choose how you tour Alaska. If you want to see Anchorage by plane, then you can schedule a flight tour. If you are looking for a more intimate experience on the ground, then tours by dogsled offer incredible close-up immersion with the environment. An Alaska guided tour truly has something for everyone.
In addition to seeing the magnificent natural landscapes that exist in Alaska, you can also learn about the unique, one of a kind history that surrounds the state. For example, you just might be surprised about the origin of the Alaska state flag. As a matter of fact, Alaska’s state flag was designed by a 13-year-old boy. Alaska ultimately decided on Benny Benson’s scene of the Big Dipper and the North Star in 1927 after calling on students throughout the territory to submit their ideas. It is no wonder that Benny Benson’s design was chosen because the views of the night sky in Alaska are like nowhere else in the world. The sightseeing does not end at the nature and wildlife of the area when the sun goes down. In Alaska, you have access to breathtaking views of all different kinds of constellations and wonders overhead.
