Where to Go
Deciding where to go isn’t always easy in Alaska. The state encompasses almost 590,000 square miles (one-fifth the area of the contiguous United States); six major regions of differing climate, topography, and plant life; and 44,000 miles of coastline. To help narrow your choices, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s Watchable Wildlife Program has compiled information about viewing locations around the state.
