    A walk on the wild side

    There are places on the fringes of this world more beautiful than you can imagine, but they’re sometimes so far off the beaten path that you won’t find them in the holiday photos of family or friends. Welcome to Alaska.

    Those in the know say that the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is the true natural treasure of Alaska. Likewise, the locals’ playground, Kenai Peninsula, is slightly off the main tourist arteries, as is beautiful Copper River. This adventurous itinerary will let you prise open the hidden gems of this region, with its wondrous landscapes and its wealth of wildlife, and still ensure you do the essentials, such as cross the Arctic Circle, and visit Canada’s must-sees – the glorious Rockies, Whistler, Vancouver, and more.
