Anchorage is the largest city in Alaska, lying further north than Oslo, Helsinki and Stockholm. It sits on a coastal stretch in the Cook Inlet, almost completely surrounded by two fjords - the Knik and Turnagain Arms. Due to its location reaching up to the wild alpine territory of Chugach State Park, black bears, grizzly bears and moose are common sights in the surrounding area. With views of the Cook Inlet, the slopes of the Chugach Mountains and Mount McKinley in the distance, it is the perfect base from which to explore Alaska.
