America: Alaska

Alaska was sold to the United States by the Russian tsar in 1867 and has since become the largest, northernmost and westernmost state. The breathtaking wilderness captivates many adventurous hunters every year. Powerful moose bulls and brown bears and even the coveted Dall sheep pull their tracks here. Hardly any human soul lives in Alaska, so you will experience mostly untouched nature here. You will never forget these hunting days!

Informations Alaska

Alaska has only about 700,000 inhabitants on a total area of ??1,717.85 km². There are only a few areas in the world that are sparsely populated. Alaska borders as the enclave of the United States only in the east of Canada. In addition to the capital Juneau are Anchorage, by far the largest city, and Fairbanks the main cities of this state.

 

Alaska consists of three landscape areas:

The mountain range along the entire southern Pacific coast, the Yukon lowland with its mountain and hill country and the coastal plain on the Arctic Ocean. Along the Pacific coast, the mountain system is geologically unstable, occasionally erupt volcanoes and earthquakes, the south side is heavily glaciated. The "Malaspina" in the southeast of Alaska near the coast on the Gulf of Alaska is with 4.275 km ² the largest non-polar mountain glacier on earth. At its thickest point, the approximately 100 km long and up to 65 km wide glacier has a width of more than 600 m. The central part of the state includes the lowlands of the Yukon and Kuskokwim Rivers. The coastal plain in the north gradually falls from the Brooks Range to the Arctic Ocean. Thousands of lakes are located on the territory of this state, the largest of which (Becharof, Iliamna, Naknek and Ugashik) are located on the Alaska peninsula or at the point of transition from the mainland to this peninsula.
