The world offers so many breathtaking locations and places to see and not everyone is able to visit them in person. With this new feature series I invite you on a journey to discover and enjoy the beauty our planet offers. Let's travel the world!

Alaska, USA, North America


Situated in the far north between Canada and Russia, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Bering Sea and the Arctic Ocean, Alaska is a place where real wilderness still exists.

Tundra, mountain ranges, glaciers, fjords, rough coastlines - Alaska is a must see for everyone who likes to be outdoors.

ALASKA'S QUARTZ CREEK IN FALL by 1arcticfox

Alaska was actually bought from Russia in 1867 for 7 million Dollar (today equivalent to approx. 120 million dollar) - still a rather paltry sum considering the landsize.

Every year people are still dying because they underestimate the wilderness and it's dangers.

After getting burned by the mediterranean sun on the Greek islands, we now travel half around the globe to reach the colder regions of stunning Alaska.

Sorry for the delay.
