Why Head Overseas? Out of Alaska and Canada for adventure travel!

With thousands of adventures worldwide, for Americans, Alaska and adventure travel beats just about anything else because of the convenience and breathtaking views.
For Americans, there are several advantages of traveling in Alaska and Canada. On the one hand, since Alaska is a U.S. state, you do not need a passport when traveling by plane or cruise ship. And, at least until January 8, 2007, Americans do not need passports to lead Alaska and Canada for adventure tourism activities.
And they speak English … sort of!
One thing I really like Alaska and Los adventure travel is that even in Canada, there is a large difference in the United States. Canadian banking systems, hospitals and entertainment are all on par with United States.
There is one important difference however. I hate to say, but Canadians are simply more enjoyable and more useful than my fellow Americans.
The thing is, however, that the same can be said of Alaska. Must be something in the clean air and water above the 49th parallel that causes this friendship, because of Alaska are also incredibly hospitable.
