Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve

The most northern national park in the country is a mountain-gazer and trekker’s dream. Even by Alaska standards of beauty, Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve offers truly epic scenery of endless, cragged peaks (once ancient seabed) and six different "Wild and Scenic" rivers. For instant respect with locals, hike the famed and arduous Anaktuvuk Pass.
