Alaska is a land of superlatives with its expansive mountain ranges, endless glaciers, winding rivers, diverse landscapes, rich cultures, and bountiful wildlife. The “Great Land” boasts North America’s highest peak, 20,320- foot Mount McKinley, and its largest glacier, the Malaspina Glacier, which is 50 percent larger than the state of Delaware. In addition, Alaska has more coastline than all of the other states combined. Much of this majesty remains protected in Alaska’s national park system in the form of 17 national parks, preserves, and monuments. These units serve an important role in protecting the natural, cultural, and historical features of Alaska.
Alaska’s national park system extends over 54 million acres and makes up two-thirds of the entire U.S. National Park System. Much of this acreage was added in 1980 when Congress passed the landmark Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, one of the great milestones in the history of American land conservation. From iconic national parks such as Denali National Park, Glacier Bay, and Kenai Fjords to lesser known parks and preserves such as Kobuk Valley, Noatak, and Bering Land Bridge, Alaska’s national parks, preserves, and monuments are among the world’s finest and offer visitors the experience of a lifetime.
There are many opportunities to explore these special places by road, boat, train, or plane.
