What should everyone know about Alaska

Alaska

Alaska, the largest state in the United States, has one of the most beautiful and beautiful most impressive natural landscapes of the world. The fascinating landscape, the wild rivers, the lonely and almost undiscovered mountains are always an overwhelming experience. The combination of natural landscapes and interesting cities and towns makes every trip to Alaska an unforgettable event. Only around 710,000 people live in this state, which corresponds to a population density of just 0.4 inhabitants per square kilometer. The most famous cities are probably the capital Juneau, Anchorage and Fairbanks. Enjoy the magical landscape, for example on one Alaska cruise.

Good to know:
The months between June and August are considered the best travel time. Winter begins as early as October. Even if the summers are short, the temperatures can rise to 18 ° C.

Nome

At the tip of the Seward Peninsula is the village of Nome - on the Bering Sea. Almost 4,000 people live here. Nome was once the most famous gold rush town in all of Alaska. You can still see old relics from the time of the gold rush - such as old steam engines, disused railway tracks or gold excavators that were left behind here. There is also a museum in Nome that shows you the old life of the prospectors. By the way, Nome can only be reached by ship or plane.
