The largest and northernmost state of the USA. In addition, it is separated from the rest of the country. Alaska consists not only of the mainland, but also of a large number of islands. These lands once belonged to the Russian Empire, and traces of Russian residence are still preserved, for example, in the names of a number of geographical objects. In 1867, Alaska was sold to the United States and very soon began to form as a tourist area.
Travelers are interested in the local nature. National parks, glaciers and fjords are the main wealth of the state. Tourist routes have been developed for every taste, for example, hiking along the “Foggy Fjords” or sea in Juneau for whale watching. The climate and geographical location give travelers the opportunity to see another unusual phenomenon — the Northern Lights.
