Last year I read Nora Roberts’ “Northern Lights” and fell in love with the spectacular Alaska. I am sure you know the feeling when a book makes you want to visit a certain place. That’s what this book did to me. Made me want to go there.
Alaska is one of the at-risk places to visit and you definitely need to do more planning and research before your vacation. But it also offers some of the most spectacular landscapes on Earth. Unfortunately, some of them won’t be here for too long. Make sure to visit Alaska before the icebergs are just a reminder of what used to be Alaska.
With the climate dramatically changing and reshaping the face of our planet, it only makes sense to take advantage of the cheap Anchorage flights this summer and plan the vacation of a lifetime.
You’ll also need accommodation, so hostels in Anchorage can represent a good choice, especially if you want to save money (which you can use to plan different outdoor activities). Hiking during the summer is excellent but it’s advisable to choose a guided tour. Fishing is also excellent here. You can also take day cruises to see the famous spots at Glacier Bay, Kenai Fjords and Prince William Sound. You can also take wildlife viewing tours gray wolves, grizzly bears, orcas, lynx, moose, and hundreds of other rare and endangered species in their natural habitat.
