Alaska Travel

Road trips are great, but if you want the best views of Alaska, you need to “get high," up in the air.

The Valley of 10,000 Smokes in Katmai National Park has several selling points for the outdoors travel without a fat wallet. It's reasonably cheap, especially if you have some airline mileage. It's much different than anything you'll see in Southcentral Alaska and the hike doesn't require technical skills.Nathaniel Herz
Former customers of an Anchorage motor home rental company are backing the Better Business Bureau in a battle over vacations gone bad. Some question whether you get what you pay for.Craig Medred
Though no one was seriously injured when a White Pass & Yukon Route train derailed near the Alaska-Canada border last week, one passenger said the accident "could have been a hell of a lot more serious than it was."Megan Edge
Even for an Alaskan living in Anchorage I don’t get the sense that I am a speck on a vast landscape as often as I’d hope. I was awed and excited. As we walked, I heard “wow!” and “this is amazing” from the visitors. Alli Harvey

I usually make the run to Fairbanks with a cooler full of sandwiches and snacks. But now that I looked at it, I grew curious about restaurants along the way and decided that on my return trip I would eat at some of the places I’ve passed a hundred times but never eaten at.Mike Dunham
Old-timers in Hope say the town off the Seward Highway, on the banks of Resurrection Creek, has been exploding with outsiders -- but, then, "everyone is making money" off them.Megan Edge
Some Alaska hikes prove especially memorable when, as on that particular night, location, weather, and season come together in a beautiful collaboration. But what makes any hike or climb most scenic smacks of subjectivity.Shawn Lyons
Eleven vessels sail the 3,500-mile series of routes all year, in all sorts of weather, to more than 30 terminals. Passengers rely upon the Alaska Marine Highway for everything from medical care to soccer games and family holidays. But it's a superb way to see parts of Alaska too -- without much fuss. Erin Kirkland
