Meet Your Host State: Alaska

Alaska is often called "America's Last Frontier" because of its rugged landscape and distance from the contiguous United States. But few people know that its namesake comes from the Aluet word Alyeska which means "The Great Land."

Alaska boasts eight national parks and over 57 million acres of designated wilderness land. Further, it is home to 17 of the 20 tallest mountaintops in the United States. We'll fly over Denali on our visit to the area. Grab your binoculars and get ready to spot some wildlife because people travel from all over the world to see Alaska's Big 5: bear, moose, Dall sheep, wolf, and caribou. 

With all it has to offer, "The Great Land" is the perfect moniker for this rich natural wonder.

Denali: The Tallest Mountain in North America

Denali is the third highest mountain of the Seven Summits (the tallest mountains on each of the seven continents). Though it's often shrouded in clouds, even a brief glimpse of it is worth the trek to this northernmost state.


Weather permitting, we'll board planes to view this beauty from the air and then land among it's peaks for a serene mountain visit.

Taste The Freshest Catch

Alaska's vast wilderness and extensive shoreline bring us an abundance of fresh fish and meats to enjoy during any visit.


From sockeye salmon and oysters to local dishes like reindeer sausage and akutaq - an indigenous "ice cream" treat, fresh food is an integral part of the Alaskan experience.

A Cultural Meeting Point

Alaska has a diverse mix of cultural histories, including Russian, gold rush pioneers, and indigenous peoples like the Inuit, Tlingit, Athabaskan, and Aleut. Examples of these art, culture, and food traditions can be found throughout the state.
