A host of story and travel opportunities are available in the wonderful state of Alaska (USA). Qualified journalists are invited. Media Trip Info

The State of Alaska hosts several press trips each year. Qualified WTMG journalists members may be eligible for one of the many upcoming trips.Alaska-03

Most of the press trips are organized around a specific region or theme. For example, recent trips have featured Alaska’s national parks, “Great Lodges of Alaska,”  and RV travel.

Another option might be a tour of Lake Hood Seaplane Base and the nearby Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum to learn about the pioneer aviators of Alaska. Or take a “flight-seeing” tour high above the Chugach Range to a nearby glacier, private fishing spot or to catch a glimpse of Mount McKinley.

There is also no other place on earth quite like Alaska for wildlife viewing. The pristine wilderness of Alaska is, perhaps, the last vestige of thriving populations of North American wildlife. Where else can you see polar bears, bald eagles, blue and humpbacked whales, gray wolves, grizzly bears, orcas, lynx, moose, and hundreds of other rare and endangered species in their original and undisturbed natural habitats?

The Alaska Tourism Board also hosts the annual Alaska Media Road Show. Which features a day of pre-scheduled appointments with key Alaska media contacts from both the public and private sectors. In addition, breakfast, lunch, afternoon refreshments and evening events will enhance your networking and social opportunitiAlaska-02es.

This year, the event will be held from November 1-3, 2015 at the Four Seasons Resort, The Biltmore in the beautiful city of Santa Barbara, California (100 miles north of Los Angeles).

Qualified journalists should contact Jim thompson for details on applying for an Alaska visit.
