The state of Alaska is stuffed full of eight different national parks. Eight! By comparison, the entire Eastern seaboard of the United States has just three national parks. This just once again proves that the Last Frontier is a place unlike any other.
Alaska’s national parks are scattered all across the state, so no matter which lodge or tour location you’re working at, you’ll never be more than a stone’s throw away from one of our nation’s most cherished natural settings. Of course, many employees make it a goal to visit all of Alaska’s national parks in their tenure here; a move we certainly recommend.
Here’s the first iteration of a two part photo tour of just some of the amazing sights to see in Alaska’s stunning national parks. But be warned: despite the beauty of these pictures, they only portray just a fraction of the splendor you can expect to see in person!
Glacier Bay National Park
With no roads accessing it, Glacier Bay National Park can be a bit tricky to get to. Once you’re there, however, you’ll realize it’s well worth the difficult journey. Don’t miss this amazing park on Alaska’s Southeastern panhandle.
Katmai National Park
This cherished national park in Southern Alaska is home to some incredible volcanoes that have had a profound effect on the terrain of their surrounding areas.
Denali National Park
As the home of North America’s tallest mountain, Denali certainly is the most famous of Alaska’s national parks. But there’s much more to this park than its enormous mountain.
Gates of the Arctic National Park
Gates of the Arctic National Park is the northernmost national park in Alaska (and, thus, the United States). Getting there is essentially only possible by plane, but once you’re there you’ll experience the most unexplored national park in America.
