Many people assume Alaska is cold all year round, but that’s not so much true during the summer months. In fact, Alaska is also called the land of the midnight sun, so during June and July you will almost get 24 hours of sunlight!
The best time of year to see them are from August until April when the seasons move into Autumn and Winter, as the skies become dark enough to see them.
Alaska is home to the highest peaks in North America, Mount McKinley, which sits at 6,190 meters above sea level. If you want to hike this beast, it will take 23 days and a few oxygen tanks, plus some sledging gear.
Another thing that Alaska is famous for is the adventurous ride on Denali Highway – one of the most remote highways in Alaska – a gravel road in partially poor conditions.
If you are planning on camping in Alaska, you will quickly learn to enjoy the freedom and choose your own path.
