Vacation spots & excursions

hour's drive from Anchorage). About 300 km north is the huge Denali
State Park with the majestic Denali. Grizzly and black bears,
moose, caribou, wolves and eagles have found a habitat in the wide tundra. To
the east of Anchorage is Wrangell St. Elias National Park, which is
valued for its great natural beauty. In Kenai Fjords National Park on
the Kenai Peninsula sea otters, sea lions, seals and whales live. Kenai itself has
one of the most beautiful Russian churches in Alaska. In central and
Northern Alaska can be visited abandoned gold mining towns or long walks
through Noatak National Preserve, Kobuk Valley National Park or Arctic
National Park. Fairbanks, Alaska's second largest city,
was founded in 1901. Its name is associated with the gold rush that swept Alaska
around the turn of the century.
The city's main attraction is the Alaskaland amusement park. Northern
Alaska is north of the Arctic Circle, in Barrow on the north
coast the sun does not set from May 10th to August 2nd. In the Katmai
National Park you can see brown bears catching salmon at
waterfalls. The Arctic Museum in the Inuit settlement on the
Bering Sea (Eskimos) Kotzebue provides fascinating insights
into the traditional way of life of the Inuit.
Over half of the population lives in Anchorage. A multitude
of interesting museums, good restaurants and shopping facilities make the
dynamic city the ideal starting point for exploring the magnificent Chugach
State Park with its alpine landscape and the Potter Point State
Game Refuge, where you can watch water birds. Unique is a 30-minute trip on
the Alaska Railroad to Whittier and the wonderful recreation area of Prince
William Sound. Sailing, fishing, hiking, kayaking and nature observation

Whittier by ferry to Valdez passes the impressive Columbia Glacier. The Alyeska
ski area on Mount Alyeska, around 70 km south of Anchorage, offers
excellent winter sports with slopes of all difficulty levels. Cross-country
skiing, glacier hikes and sled dog rides complete the leisure program.

strip in the middle of a picturesque fjord and glacier landscape. The pretty church
of St. Nicholas with its onion domes commemorates the many Russian
immigrants. The historic city center, Gold Rush Historic District,
which was recently renovated, contrasts beautifully with the high-rise buildings
of the government district.
Sitka, the former capital of Russian Alaska, offers
interesting evidence from the time when Alaska was still part of Russia. The Cathedral
of St. Michael is particularly worth seeing. The Indian Cultural Center in Sitka
National Park gives an impression of the traditions of the indigenous
people. On the Prince of Wales Island you can also find traces of the
Indian tribes that were once based in Alaska.
