Known as 'The Last Frontier', Alaska is one of the most fascinating and majestic lands to explore. Situated right on the northwestern edge of North America and made up of stunning landscapes, striking mountains, and pristine wilderness, it's a prime place for all kinds of outdoor recreation and adventure activities. Alaska is also regarded as one of the perfect places to visit if you really want to 'get away from it all', fleeing the hustle and bustle and urban madness of city life in order to retreat to a mostly untouched paradise of ice-capped mountains, endless forests, and shimmering blue waters.
