Known as “Seward’s Folly,” the US acquired the Alaska Territory from Russia in 1867. It was nicknamed for the Secretary of State’s alleged mistake, but it’s pretty safe to say the critics were wrong. Alaska is the ultimate outdoor playground, full of beauty and extremes. In summer it’s the land of the midnight sun, and in winter, it’s one of harshest climates known to man. Denali, the highest point in the US, clocks in at 20,310 ft (6190 m), and presents a challenge to even the hardiest of mountaineers. From awe inspiring glaciers to traditional dogsled adventures, an Alaskan vacation is truly one of a kind.
