Along with its rich human heritage and undiminished wildlife, Alaska offers visitors a chance to explore and witness some of the most extraordinary natural features on the planet.

We’ve put together this quick guide to help you find them.

Our goal is to provide clear directions to the most sensible viewing spots that are also easy to include during popular itineraries around the state. Where possible, we’ve also provided contacts to vendors and guides to assist you on your journey.

These places include horizon-filling volcanoes, more glaciers than you can count, mountain ranges that stretch hundreds of miles, waterfalls and secret beaches, gorges and hot springs. Head out an be awed!
