This is book number 3117 in the National Geographic Adventure Map series.
Alaska is a land so vast that is boggles the imagination. It is so large that it could easily contain the next three largest states: Texas, California, and Montana and still have room left over. Despite its large size Alaska has very few inhabitants making it the state with the lowest population density. Alaska is known for its dramatic, diverse terrain of wide-open spaces, mountains and forests, with abundant wildlife and many small towns.
A majority of Alaska, sixty percent, is owned and managed by the Federal Government. These lands are open to the public and offer a wide range of activities from sightseeing in Denali National Park to river-running and fishing on one of many wild rivers. Many vistors to Alaska choose to arrive via cruise ship through the famous Inside Passage. The Alaska Adventure Map shows all of these features and more from the temperate rain forest in the Pan Handle to the arctic tundra of the North Slope. This is a state of diverse and wide open spaces that are still truly wild.
Alaska's most famous hotspots, like Denali, Anchorage, the Inside Passage, Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, and many others are clearly marked on the map. The boundaries of National Parks, National Forests, Natural Reserves and Wildlife Refuges are all clearly marked. With such a wealth of content, the map is an ideal complement to National Geographic's Inside Passage Destination Map or any other guidebook to the area.
