Alaska is unique among the fifty American states - not only is it separated from the rest, bordering Canada to the south east, but it's the furthest north of US territories. It's a vast and sparsely populated landscape where people travel long distances by car and plane. All roads, it's claimed, lead to its largest city, Anchorage, where most visitors arrive through Anchorage International Airport. Nestled in the mountains, Anchorage has no shortage of amenities and things to do, but of course, most visitors want to explore further and visit Alaska's dramatic national parks.
With a convenient pick up and drop off location at Anchorage Airport, many visitors choose Alamo as their car rental provider, so with its really easy ordering process, you'll be driving around Alaska in time. Given the slightly higher prices for gas in Alaska, car hire can be a bit more expensive here than elsewhere in the US, so Alamo's cost-efficiency make it an easy choice for consumers aiming to make the most of their holiday budget.
The South Central region, where Anchorage is located, has a large number of wildlife refuges and recreational parks, but the highlight for many tourists is a drive down to the Kenai Fjords National Park, with its massive Harding Icefield and many glaciers. The more intrepid travellers can get some extra mountaineering experience on the glacier trails, while others can take a look at the marine life on a dedicated tour boat.
Not far away, you'll find the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, one of the many refuges that protect Alaska's native species, including moose, wolves, brown and black bears and caribou. The refuge spreads across a variety of mountain, lowland and wetland habitats, including the salmon-rich Kenai River. Sports enthusiasts will want to try the Canoe Trail System.
North of Anchorage, the interior region of the state is also its cultural centre. Head here to find out about Native Alaskan life and distinctive handcrafts made from the by-products of hunting, like ivory and bone. The main city is Fairbanks, where the internationally acclaimed University of Alaska's Museum of the North is located. Go this close to the Arctic Circle at the right time of year, and you'll catch the midnight sun at the height of summer and the spectacular Northern Lights during the winter.
