IS ALASKA RIGHT FOR YOU? - How to Travel to Alaska
First of all, if you’ve never looked at a road map of Alaska, check out google maps for a minute. There are VERY few roads in the entire state. So unless you’re a bush plane pilot there are really only a few locations that are even accessible by car.
TRIPPED TRAVEL GEAR
We make and sell travel products on Amazon. They’re totally rad.

We’ve divided Alaska in to the 3 most visited regions in the state:
1. Interior Alaska: the home of Fairbanks, The Dalton Highway, Denali National Park and the cute town of Talkeetna
Driving south from Fairbanks to Anchorage there, again, is essentially one road. This less than noteworthy drive does however border Denali National and State Parks and is of course a huge destination for loads of people visiting Alaska.
I will say though… Denali wasn’t exactly our cup of tea. If you are a backcountry hiker and camper Denali is a dream come true with limited hiking paths and very few tourists camping overnight in the backcountry it is EXACTLY the place to get away from it all.
If you’re not Bear Grills, the only way to see the park is the park in the entrance parking lot and get on a school bus with other tourists. There is one road in and out of this huge park that drives towards Denali, the highest peak in North America. Of course the mountain I’m sure is a sight to see, only about 30% of visitors actually see the mountain due to weather.
We did pull in to the park to see if we wanted to venture inside. You’re able to hike or take a bus from the parking lot to visit the park sled dogs which, at first I thought was going to be neat but seeing a bunch of dogs in their pens, I dunno, I’ve seen dogs before.
Of course lots of people want to visit the part to see wildlife, but hey, it’s Alaska, there’s like a bear on every corner. You’ll see in our upcoming videos.
The Kenai Peninsula
In our opinion, if you are flying in or driving to Alaska you really can have a TOTAL Alaska experience by just visiting the Kenai Peninsula. Here’s 8 quick reasons:
1. People fly in from all over the world just to fish the salmon in the Russian River.
2. If you’re looking for other fishing, you can always book Halibut fishing out of Homer or Seward/seward. Hope you catch more fish than we did.
3. Kenai Fjords National Park is home to the Harding icefield and its 30 outflowing glaciers….or nearly 40 glaciers. The National Park site said both numbers. We can all agree that’s a lot of ice.
4. The Kenai is packed with wildlife: bald eagles, humpback whales, orcas, sea otters, sheep, bears…just to name a few. If you’re as bad at spotting wildlife as we are, you can always visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and see just about everything including musk ox, which might be our new favorite friends.
5. In the Kenai peninsula alone you’ll find some of Alaska’s best museums, aquarium and again, the Alaska wildlife conservation center. You should seriously go here. They have Musk Ox, again, which are awesome.
6. This is also one of the best jump off points scenic flights or sea plane adventures, including a trip over to Katmai National Park: Home of the famous brooks falls for brown bear viewing. Maybe you can get a shot of a fish going into a bears mouth. We didn’t.
7. The Alaska Railroad comes down here for a reason. It’s a beautiful trainride which we didn’t take ourselves, but we saw them next to us on the road pretty often. The road was beautiful drive therefore the train must be a beautiful ride. Also, online reviews say its awesome.
8. Whether you're hoping to explore mountains or ocean, from the coastal rain forests around Seward and Kodiak to the rough Arctic chill of glaciers flowing off the Harding Icefield—there’s a huge range of diversity here.
South East Alaska
Our last Alaskan region is South East Alaska also referred to as Alaska’s panhandle. Its popular on all of the cruises leaving out of Seattle or Vancouver.

The city of #Anchorage lies in Alaska’s mountainous south and is home to around 40 percent of all Alaskans. At the height of summer, Anchorage basks in 22 hours of sunlight, with the sun barely dipping below the horizon, making it an excellent #vacation destination for those looking to pack a lot into their trip.
#Explore the Flattop Mountain trails which serve up some of the best views in the state. Learn the traditional dances and games of Alaska’s first peoples at the Alaska Native Heritage Centre or stock up on stories and folklore from the Last Frontier at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Centre. Hang out at the dock at Seward, a picturesque fishing outpost or set sail to the Kenai Fjords National Park. Marvel as deep-sea giants breach the surface of these still waters.
