Denali National Park
Denali National Park is the second largest park in the USA. The region is characterized by alpine landscapes interspersed by large valleys where wild rivers flow. It is dominated by the highest mountain in the United States, Mont McKinley (6,500 meters). The park is the habitat of grizzlies, wolves, elks, etc.
Over 650 species of plants and as many different types of moss lichen, mold and algae grow on the sides and in Denali National Park. This vegetation has adapted to the freezing winters of the sub artic wild land. The subsoil in the region is permanently frozen and has been for thousands of years. Only the thin superior surface of the land allows the wakening of the flora of Alaska.
The Denali plains are covered by two types of vegetation: taiga (forest) and tundra (small plants and bushes).
Gates of the Arctic National Park
This park preserves a vast region of exceptional scientific value coupled with an intact landscape of extreme beauty. It is made up of a labyrinth of glacial valleys, mountains covered with northern forests and arctic tundra as well as valleys crisscrossed by sinuous rivers.

Kobuk Valley National Park
Kobuk Valley is surrounded by the Bair and Waring mountain ranges. The park protects several important geographic features, of which the central part of Kobuk River, the sand dunes of Great Kobuk and the dunes of Hunt River. The sand, result of the grinding of old glaciers, was brought to Kobuk Valley by water and wind. It stayed there thanks to the vegetation. We can find fossils of mammals dating from the ice age.
Lake Clark National Park
Lake Clark is a mixture representing the ecosystem of several Alaskan regions. The spectacular views spread from the shores of Cook Inlet, over the Chigmit Mountains and up to the tundra of the interior mounts. The Chigmits where Alaska and the Aleutian Ranges meet is an imposing succession of mountains and glaciers that include two active volcanoes: Mont Redoubt and Mont Iliamna.
