Alaska National Parks – The Fabulous 8; Lina Stock; Divergent Travelers

USA – Kluane / Wrangell-St. Elias / Glacier Bay / Tatshenshini-Alsek

An overview guide of the eight Alaska National Parks. These are some of the most remote, yet most visited National Parks in the USA. Denali, Lake Clark, Gates of the Arctic, Kobuk, Katmai, Glacier Bay, Kenai Fjords and Wrangell- St Elias.

It is no coincidence that remote and inaccessible is virtually synonymous with stunning wilderness and incredible scenery. A lack of people tends to let nature grow and maintain itself as nature intended. The wilds of the eight Alaska National Parks are no exception to this rule.

Alaska is arguably one of the best places on Earth to witness nature in action, from slow-moving glaciers on their millenia-long journeys to bears engaged in lightning fast salmon fishing at waterfalls. And with relatively easier access than more inhospitable regions across the world, these eight Alaska National Parks are in a prime position to show off the breathtaking beauty of nature.

What’s better is that while they contain large amounts of remote areas, with a little bit of commitment it is possible to visit each one of these national parks.
