Ken Burns National Parks Documentary

Glacier Bay National ParkWhen you think about an Alaska vacation it is natural to also think about visiting one of Alaska’s outstanding National Parks. Not only is Alaska home to Wrangell St. Elias National Park, the largest National Park in the country, we also have some of the country’s most spectacular Parks such as Denali National Park, Glacier Bay National Park and Kenai Fjords National Park.

So of course we are excited about the upcoming release of the latest Ken Burns documentary, “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea”. This six-part, 12-hour documentary series was filmed over a period of six years, and includes some of the Nation’s most stunning Parks, including a number of Alaska National Parks.

The series is coming to PBS September 27, 2009 or you can pre-order a DVD for release in early October. In fact, we are giving a way a DVD box set of the film each month starting in October through the end of the year. Just email us at parks@alaskatravel.com or follow us on Twitter and you will be automatically entered to win.

    My husband and I want to travel to Denali National Park in August of 2010. Someone suggested an earlier trip for fear of the mosquitoes. Are the mosquitoes a nuisance that time of year? If so, how bad?
