The interior of Alaska is basically a large wilderness area with high mountains in the Brooks Range with the Alaska Native village Anaktuvuk to the north,  the Alaska Range with Mount Denali in the center and the Ray Mountains to the east.
 
The northern part is mainly permafrost and tundra, where large reindeer herds roam.
 
The main waterway is the mighty Yukon River that played a major role in the Klondike Gold Rush in the 1890-ts.
 
A few roads, some of them unpaved, connect the scarce cities like Fairbanks, Delta Junction, Tok and Healy.
 
The climate is wildly extreme with subzero temps in winter and hot and sweaty conditions in the  mosquito rich summer.
 
Most popular is Denali National Park, but expect fantastic panoramas everywhere and prepare to meet wildlife like moose, reindeer, black bear eagle and foxes along the road.
