Alaska – largest and northernmost state of America – is like nowhere else on Earth. So vast is the land of the 49th that words barely do it justice. You could throw a whole bunch of superlatives, a chunk of the Lower 48, and a spare nation or two through its borders and still never touch the sides. All creatures great, small and goliath roam here, national parks touch base from ocean to monumental mountain, and more than 34,000 miles of coastline hugs its range. America’s Final Frontier is raw wilderness on an epic scale. Where nature’s beauty lies, we inevitably follow, and few places scream adventure like the land of the Iditarod and Midnight Sun. As scenic as it is wild and unforgiving, North America’s great untamed not only offers ample opportunity to explore but to simply marvel at its majesty alongside. We’ve compiled a selection of images showcasing Alaska at its beautifully mind-blowing best.
