Transportation in Alaska and getting around

January 18, 2013 - 7:11 pm Comments Off

If you ever thought about visiting Alaska for the untouched nature, peace and
quiet, forget the car as the option as you won’t get far. There are not that
many roads and the road system goes mainly from Canada with the west side of
Alaska not having any roads at all and even the capital is not on the road map.
The railway system is constantly developing and offers the most amazing
sightseeing, if you travel in the daylight. The air transport takes you to the
most remote places but the best way to explore it, is by marine transport and
dogsleds.

Despite the harsh climate, Alaska is a state with quite a few residents!

While Alaska may seem relatively deserted, it is largely surprising that there
are actually big towns in there like Anchorage that counts over 250,000
residents. It’s modern for it’s size and well connected. The towns like Yakutat
City, Juneau, Fairbanks and Sitka may not come close in the numbers but they
are still considered big for the total population. There are also smaller
urbanized towns that count up to 10,000 people but the majority of the
territory is actually covered in villages that it’s hard to get to by road.
Though the perception of Alaska is somewhat inhabited to a point, the people
living in big towns lead a relatively modern life.
