Alaska & Pacific Northwest
The physical beauty and wildlife of this region are unparalleled anywhere else in the world. Sea life abounds, you are almost guaranteed to encounter humpback whales and orcas along your journey, not to mention other marine mammals such as dolphins, seals and sea otters. Look up and you will often see bald eagles flying overhead. Look towards the shore and it will not be long until you spot a grizzly or black bear. You will be hard pressed to find a location where beautifully snowcapped mountains are not in view. Icy blue glaciers cut through valleys stretching all the way to the sea. Of course the most popular activity is taking in the sights, others include hiking, fishing, kayaking and exploring the many fishing or mining towns that dot the coastline.
