Here Are The 19 Best Places To View Wildlife In Alaska In 2017

From land to sea, wildlife viewing in the last frontier is unlike anywhere else in the world. As the largest and most undeveloped and uninhabited state in the nation, it’s safe to say that the wildlife in Alaska largely outnumbers the human population. Locals love their furry free-roaming neighbors and visitors to the 49th state are always blown away by their majestic up-close-and-personal wildlife encounters. In the new year, be sure to add as many of these fun, educational, interactive and immensely beautiful locations into your wildlife viewing bucket list.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
