Adventurers have been drawn to Alaska’s vast wilderness for centuries. There is something about the limitless no man’s land below and sweeping skies above that draws seekers and vacationers alike to experience uninhibited freedom in “The Last Frontier.” No matter where you travel, you’ll find Alaska hotels filled with like-minded wanderers and friendly locals. Everyone may know your name, but beyond that, they’re not asking any questions.
True explorers seeking untouched backcountry can visit the ultimate wilderness: Gates of the Arctic National Park. While you could reserve one of the few hotels in Alaska in the Arctic region, hiring a guide for an overnight camping trip is the ultimate exploit. Spend a day fishing an isolated stretch of untamed river or pristine alpine lake. If you’re looking for a little more civilization, head to the southern coast. All the action of Alaska’s largest city will be at your fingertips when you book an Anchorage hotel. Enjoy the best nightlife in the state and world-class restaurants (the King crab and Alaskan salmon are a must-try). Or take the scenic route in Juneau, where you can spend a day hiking and picnicking at the Mendenhall Glacier and Lake, then go downtown for dinner and drinks. You’ll find accommodations from cheap to luxurious in the capital, thanks to a daily influx of almost 6,000 tourists! Yes, the friendly people of Alaska welcome everyone with open arms—but don’t expect any Eskimo kisses.
