    • Top Tip 3

      Take a day cruise on Kenai Fjords National Park to view the magnificent glaciers and abundant wildlife.

    • Top Tip 5

      Take a float plane ride from Anchorage to Kodiak Island to see the owners of the island, the half ton Brown Bear!

    • Top Tip 6

      The best time to see the Northern Lights in Fairbanks is between November and April. It’s darkest during these months so the viewing is better.

    • Top Tip 7

      Make sure you visit Denali National Park. Private vehicles aren't allowed in the park so either take a day excursion or, better still, stay in one of the lodges within the park.
