Description

The Interior is inclusive of most of the main land-locked regions of the state, not bordered by coasts. The largest city in the Interior is Fairbanks, which is about 8 hours by car, north of Anchorage. This huge expanse of land includes the Alaska Range, which is where the highest peak in North America is located, Mt.Mckinley/Denali.

Getting There

Depending on what part of the interior you are travelling to, it might be ideal to land in Fairbanks, or Anchorage International Airport and then bush plane or car.
