Alaska dwarfs other U.S. states in its sheer size and in the diversity of its geology and topology. America’s 49th state accounts for one fifth of the total land area in the U.S. at more than 580,000 square miles. From rainforests to deserts and gold-bearing river valleys to the tallest peaks in America, you will find extensive natural beauty when you travel within Alaska. In fact, 17 of the 20 highest peaks in the United States are located in Alaska, with Denali being the tallest mountain in all of North America peaking at 20,320 feet. Due to its more isolated location, Alaska is also diverse ecologically and culturally. Alaska extends over five distinct regions including the Far North, South Central, Southeast, Southwest and Interior.
