Cape Prince of Wales - Westernmost point of continental North America

Cape Prince of Wales - Westernmost point of continental North America

This place, just 100 km below the Arctic Circle, marks the division between the coasts of the Pacific and Arctic oceans, as well as between the Bering and Chukchi seas, being itself the eastern boundary of the Bering Strait, these 85 km / 53 mi of water  between the US and Russia. Here you can find the rural village of "Wales", or "Kingigin" in the local dialect of the Inupiaq language, with more than 100 inhabitants, mostly Kingikmiut.  It is also the westernmost village of the continent but not of Alaska since that is Adak. Wales is only accessible by air from Nome with daily flights if the weather permits it, or by sea.

What else is there
If you get to Alaska, we can say that the best way to know it is visiting its National Parks. Fauna, flora and a truly spectacular terrain will allow you to enjoy amazing landscapes. Among them, Mount McKinley, the highest peak in North America (also a MOSTPOINT). In summer, in places like Anchorage and Fairbanks, the two largest cities in the state, you can experience the sensations produced by the famous midnight sun. And if yours enjoy skiing, rafting, sledding or fishing, you will be spoiled with opportunities to enjoy your favorite sports.

Notes
If you cross the Bering Strait, you will conquer another MOSTPOINT: Cape Dezhnev, the easternmost point of Asia. Moreover, located midpoint of both ends you pass the International Date Line Change. Three MOSTPOINTS in one go. Feel like it? Steve Burgess and his team got them aboard a Land Rover Defender in 2008. Also a team of 65 swimmers from 17 different countries who crossed the Strait swimming in turns of 10 minutes in 2013 with water temperatures as low as 2° C. Another way to conquer these MOSTPOINTS indeed.
