Alaska Information

Alaska, the Great Land, has long been the destination of explorers, adventures and those longing to stir their imagination. This land of extremes balances on the edge of extreme beauty and extreme danger, from long summer days to its long cold winter nights that displays one of the natural wonders of the world in the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) that lights up the darkness with its eerie green dancing light that mesmerizes its onlookers.

Alaska is a land of extreme size and uniqueness. Its seventeen National Parks which covers more than 54 million acres not only hosts wonders like North America’s tallest peak (Mount McKinley, 20,320 feet), but are part of Alaska’s unique extremes. The Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is not only the largest National Park in the nation being more than six times larger than Yellowstone, but is also home to nine of the sixteen tallest peaks in the United States. Along with its massive National Parks, Alaska is also host to the largest National Forest located in the Tongass National Forest covering more than 17 million acres which is larger than many states.

We hope this website and our company can help you write your own chapter of adventure in this magnificent land that we call our home.
