Alaska is a state of superlatives, so it's fitting that the state's eight national parks contain the nation's highest peak, the largest landmass, and some of the wildest and most remote wilderness areas in the world. 2016 marks the centennial of the national parks, so there's no better time to plan a trip to see Alaska's natural wonders. Each of the parks is distinct and you can experience them in a variety of ways, from a luxurious berth on a cruise ship to backcountry hiking, and everything in between. Here are three ways to experience four of Alaska's most diverse national parks—Denali, Glacier Bay, Lake Clark, and Wrangell-St. Elias—from mild to wild.
