Alaska is full of wildlife, adventure, incredible seafood, and beautiful landscapes. On any given day, you can see the northern lights fill up the night sky, watch bears fishing for salmon before hibernation, see how king crabs are caught, and hike to a bright blue glacier.
Ketchikan is often referred to as "Alaska's First City" thanks to its location at the southernmost end of the inside passage. Once you fly into Ketchikan, board the ferry to take a short ride over to the mainland.
