Location and orientation
Alaska is a US-American enclave and at the same time not only the largest state of the states, but also the northernmost and westernmost. And although he is the greatest, only a few people live here - which leaves more space for the unbelievable nature. From snow-covered glaciers to green steppes, from rugged coastlines to evergreen forests, Alaska has a lot to offer in terms of landscape. The capital in Juneau in the southwest, other important cities are Anchorage in the south and Fairbanks in central Alaska.
On the first Saturday in August the annual Blueberry Festival takes place in Ketchikan - in addition to blueberries you can marvel at handicrafts by over 150 artists.
