Alaskana : Alaska's Lifestyles

Celebrating What Makes Alaskans So Unique

Are you fascinated by the local Alaskans who decided to make their home in America’s 49th state? It takes an adventurous spirit to visit Alaska and it takes a special breed to live and thrive in this remote, rugged, distant and diverse state. Alaskans are independent and pioneering, they live for fresh air and friendship, they work hard and play harder, and they enjoy sharing the best of their state with everyone just as much as they love exploring the state themselves.

While ”Alaskana” typically refers to written works about Alaska, the term “Alaskana” can conjure up many diverse definitions and varied visions of the Alaska lifestyle. Some people immediately think of the sourdoughs and pioneers, trappers and miners who chased their dreams to the roughest, toughest, coldest and most remote regions of the state. Others think of Alaska Native people and their lifestyles of subsistence hunting and fishing, languages and land use, crafts and games. Some envision the Alaska Gold Rush and an oil boom while others think riverboats, railroad cars, fishing vessels and dogsleds or maybe salmon, moose, whales and bears. Ultimately, “Alaskana” is the embodiment of Alaska’s rich history and its fascinating collection of cultures and lifestyles.

We’ve selected a group of “Alaskana” itineraries which showcase the multitude of attributes of Alaska which represent or attracted so many to this unique destination. Proximity to nature and wildlife, a pioneering spirit and a rugged determination to chart their own course unites many Alaskans.  “Alaskana” tours will help you discover what makes Alaskans – well, Alaskans!
