Alaska's name comes from an Aleut word that translates to "great land" — a fitting name for its stunning landscape.
From the state capital in Juneau to the northern coastline, Alaska's residents experience everything from temperate rainforests to stunning snow capped peaks. The biggest state in the union, Alaska spans more than 586,000 square miles (though nearly 85% are affected by Arctic permafrost).
Though it has a reputation for freezing temperatures, Alaska actually offers sunny summer months with long hours of daylight.
