The Most Instagrammable Spots In Alaska

The Most Instagrammable Spots In Alaska

Alaska is not only the biggest state in America, it also happens to be the least densely populated, as well as having 17 of the highest 20 mountain peaks in America.

Throw in the fact that Alaska has more coastline than the other 49 states combined and you can start to understand just why this is an amazing place to take a magical trip to.

With such natural beauty it was tough picking just 7 Instagrammable spots in this vast state, but here they are…

Most Instagrammable places Alaska:

1. Byers Lake

You’ll find Byers Lake in Denali State Park (see spot no.2!) and it’s the perfect spot to kayak out to the middle and get one of the most Instagrammable shots, all while experiencing perfect silence.

4. Fairbanks Northern Lights

Many people dream of seeing the Northern Lights at some stage in their lives, yet sometimes miss out depending on where they try to view them. Fairbanks is one of the best places in the world, so if you hang around long enough you will 100% see them in all their glory.

5. Bears at Brooks Falls

Brooks Falls is a truly remarkable place where you can (carefully!) get up close to the bears and see them catching salmon. These huge creatures make an amazing sight – nature at its very best. Just take note that they hibernate all winter and only come out again in the spring.
