Summer sporting activities include biking, dog sledding, fishing, horseback riding, golf, kayaking and river rafting, just to name a few. Dont forget to go bear watching – Alaska is the only US State with three bear species: brown, black and polar. Though you would need to go further north to see the polar bear.
In winter, ice climbing, skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledding are just one of many activities and of course you have to see the Northern Lights!
