Don't let the cold temperatures scare you away -- Alaska is a hub of wilderness paradise, whether you arrive by air or by cruise ship. You can visit famous landmarks, such as Mount McKinley and the mighty Yukon River, or simply traverse the gargantuan landscape and see what you encounter; it may be a small fishing village, a glacier the size of a two-story building or even just a moose. And don't forget the magical northern lights. Each experience, no matter how big or small, will leave you with a warm memory of nature's beauty.
