One of place in the world where you will face many predators face to face in the wilderness. Your path will be crossed by the lord of the forest known as Grizzly or sympathetic American black bear. On well-known positions you can sea Golden Eagles or more rare Bald Eagles, which feed on Alaskan salmons, as American black bears. Except for national parks you can find here farms and breeding stations, e.g. of Alaskan Malamute

My trip to Alaska actually started long time before departure. Why Alaska, if beautiful places are really a lot? To fill my dream of travelling has helped me realize my father, an avid hunter, who for 20 years has travelled almost the whole world.
Mauna Kea or in English White Mountain is the main destination in our today’s article. Maybe you remember that Mauna Kea is basically the tallest mountain on our planet. And also that it is a volcano which erupted six thousand years ago for the last time.
Today we will take you to wild Alaska, to its largest city Anchorage, which boasts a very poetic nickname - the City of Lights and Flowers.
We already introduced you to the areas surrounding Denver. We told you something about its history and today we see its landmarks. But these are not just buildings yet also sport clubs and places in nature. These you definitely shouldn’t miss.
We have travelled to many places in North America. One of the most recent was Denver. Today we don’t travel far from the largest city of the state of Colorado. We visit Boulder, a neighboring city known for its academic institutions, the Rocky Mountains and particular understanding of how life should be lived.
There is a mountain state in the southwest United States. It is known for beautiful nature, high mountains, ghost towns, important scientific institutions, and developed agriculture. If you guessed Colorado you are right!
In the following weeks, we are going to visit some of the overlooked places in the USA. We begin our tour on the other end of the Atlantic in Pennsylvania, a state in the northwest of the country.
After our last visit to Pennsylvania, today we travel to the neighboring state of Maryland. The state is known mostly for Camp David – the weekend residence of American presidents. Annapolis is teh state capital. The state is among ten smalles US states by area.
Fall is coming so we are about to visit a place of revence on our tour across the US. This place is in the town of Arlington.
Washington D.C. is undoubtedly one of the most visited of American cities. Today we invite you to take a tour with us and see its sights, monuments and nice places.
We finish our several weeks long trip across the U.S. in the very heart of America. In New York City. It embodies freedom and fast life. We take a look at the most famous places and tell you several interesting facts.
Across the Atlantic, as we often refer to when we mention the United States, is the capital and the largest city at once of Colorado – Denver. The city of 600 thousand its elevation is exactly 1 mile, about 1.6 kilometers. Therefore, many Americans refer to it as the Mile-High City.
The next day we are going to the port town of Seward, on the way we stop at wild river and this day will finish by exploring the Research Centre of the marine ecosystem of Alaska.
The following day is dedicated to the rocky landscape of ice - Kenai Fjords National Park.
Several attempts of seeing another eagles was little successful, but towards the saddle of green hills our paths crossed a moose lady.
The next day we will expect gold digger paradise and muskoxen and reindeer farm.
We meet at 8 o’clock for breakfast. Concerning our late arrival yesterday we choose our program of the day just now. It has been decided. We leave Fairbanks and continue to Chena Hot Springs to its thermal springs.
The Tangle Lakes area is a popular camping site. In the region are many fishermen who enjoy their hobby. Tangle of lakes and rivers which going through a hilly landscape offer enough opportunities to catch fish. Today you will enjoy beautiful panoramas.
I have been telling myself for several times that there is nothing better than this place. Such a romantic place… there couldn’t be greater romance. But better comes on the following days, another experiences and again totally fantastic landscape, accommodation… well, it’s just great!
Today we will move from McCarthy to Valdez. As I said before, major part of the road was built on former railroad Copper River and Northwestern Railway. Services here are really minimal and there is no gas station.
To explore the Katmai Island we have only one day – today. This is why we plan everything carefully and try to avoid every loss of time. Do you know what to do when suddenly a bear appears in front of you? You have to keep proper distance, don’t look him in the eyes, don’t run – a bear is certainly faster than you – and talk to him with calm voice and slowly move backwards. Regardless all advice it is still better, however, to avoid encounter with a bear.
Today, for the first time, is our "reveille" later than usual. Our photo-expedition ends. It remains only to buy some souvenirs, pack our things and prepare for our way back home tomorrow.
New York is known as the City that never sleeps or the Big Apple. It is the largest city in the United States that is also the world center for commerce and finances, and has a significant influence in fashion, education, politics or art.
A trip long trip abroad means rises one significant question – what I should pack with me? I wouldn’t describe here the whole list what I put into my luggage, of course. There weren’t many things. Important is to not forget important documents.
Previous articles had to demonstrate you the atmosphere a visitor can feel in the United States. Today we will hit the streets of the most important city in the Pacific Northwest.
The EMP museum is a great experience. The building captivates your attention and lures you to explore it closer. There are many exhibitions telling about the cultural character of the city and also showing more general trends of American popular culture.
There are many natural parks in the United States. Maybe you think of Yosmite, Wrangell-St.Elias (the largest US park) or Denali.
Today we will follow up on a walk from last week, when we went to the capital of the largest American state.
