Gaze at rugged, snowcapped mountains flanked by miles of open tundra as you explore Denali National Park, Alaska's peak attraction. Experience the beauty of Wrangell-St. Elias, America's largest national park. Marvel at glacier-carved valleys in Kenai Fjords National Park. Discover the magnificent wilderness of Banff, Jasper and Kluane National Parks in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.
The Athabascan native people called it "The High One" - and for thousands of years the crowning peak of the 600-mile Alaska Range has humbled those who glimpse its mighty beatuty.
Wrangell - St. Elias National Park
The Chugach, Wrangell, and St. Elias mountain ranges converge here in what is often referred to as the "mountain kingdom of North America." The largest unit of the National Park System and a day's drive east of Anchorage, this spectacular park includes the continent's largest assemblage of glaciers and the greatest collection of peaks above 16,000 feet. Mount St. Elias, at 18,008 feet, is the second highest peak in the United States.
Adjacent to Canada's Kluane National Park, the site is characterized by remote mountains, sweeping valleys, wild rivers, and a variety of wildlife.
Kenai Fjords National Park
Sweeping from rocky coastline to glacier-crowned peaks, Kenai Fjords National Park is one of Southeast Alaska's most scenic attraction. A dayboat cruise through the park's long, steep-sided, glacier-carved valleys fives you an up-close look at abundant wildlife. Watch for bald eagles, listen to the sound of thousands of seabirds and share the waters with Stellar sea lions, harbor seals, Dall's popoises, sea otters and whales.
Glacier Bay National Park
How does it feel when a monumental chunk of ice splits off a glacier and crashes into the sea? The sound is like thunder. The impact shoots water hundreds of feet into the air. You hold your breath as you catch the moment on film. Then you wait for it to happen again. And it does. Glacier Bay has more active calving glaciers than anywhere else in the world.
Gates of the Arctic National Park
You know you must be heading somewhere incredible when you have to pass through stone gates thousands of feet high to get there—and the Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve more than lives up to its promise. The park's dramatic title was coined by legendary wilderness advocate and far-north explorer Robert Marshall, who described two peaks, Frigid Crags and Boreal Mountain, as the gates from Alaska's central Brooks Range into the arctic regions of the far north.
|National Parks in the Canadian Rockies
Kluane National Park
Visit part of the Great Land few ever see. Kluane may be far off the beaten track, but it's a must for adventurous travelers. This UNESCO World Heritage site encompasses towering Mt.Logan, less than 800 feet shy of Mt. McKinley's height, and five of the seven next tallest peaks in North America. It's blessed with magnificent wilderness and diverse and abundant wildlife.
Banff National Park
Each year, millions of visitors come to Banff to marvel at the emerald waters of Lake Louise, walk amongst the flower-filled heavens at Sunshine Meadows, and drive beneath the towering jagged peaks lining the Icefields Parkway.
Jasper National Park
Jasper is the largest and most northerly Canadian rocky mountain national park, part of a spectacular World Heritage Site. Comprised of delicate and carefully protected ecosystems, Jasper's scenery is non-the-less rugged and mountainous. In this special corner of Canada you can thrill to the thunder of Sunwapta Falls, enjoy the serene beauty of Mount Edith Cavell, connect with nature along 1,000-plus kilometres of trails, experience Athabasca Glacier up close or just resign yourself to a relaxing soak in Miette Hotsprings.
