In Alaska’s Denali Park tourists are dropped off by helicopter into beautiful grasslands and hiking paths. From June to September, you will be greeted by a million caribou, or as we like to call them, Reindeer. Lodging usually costs about $100-$200 a night, and comes with amazing views.
North Carolina’s Outer Banks:
Seeing wild horses is a spectacle that most people don’t get to see in their life.

One of the most beautiful herds is located on an 11-mile protected stretch just beyond Corolla and accessible with a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
