Ranchland abounds in Alaska and it's a highly sought out tourist destination, but have you ever thought about living here or enjoying ownership of a getaway place? One of the state's most desired locations with ranches for sale is the Kenai Peninsula which juts south from the mainland. Another great ranchland area is just outside of the state capital of Juneau along the state's panhandle.Recreational Ranch Land
In Alaska, you can expect snow and cold temperatures, but it isn't as forbidding as the concept some portray. It's a sportsman's paradise with saltwater and freshwater fishing, as well as hunting. Ranchland in Alaska is affordable and available in small acreage lots of just a few acres to much larger areas. Building a home away from home, a retirement home, or a getaway cabin here can be more than just a dream.
Looking for investment property? Alaska land has great potential for fishing and hunting adventures. Building a lodge and offering guided tours to the best fishing spots could be a way to have your property pay for itself, while you enjoy the riches living here has to offer.Alaska Views
Some say there are no more breathtaking views than those within Alaska, and you may be able to capture some of them from your own ranch site. Alaska has the tallest of peaks including Mt. McKinley, also known as Denali, at 20,300' above sea level. Many of these mountain tops are covered with snow year-round.
There are more than 700 glaciers in the state with an abundance around the Juneau and Anchorage areas, some of which can be seen by land, while others offer better views from offshore.Livestock & Ranching
Cattle ranching in Alaska dates back prior to the state's purchase from Russia in 1867. Today's Alaskan cattle ranching takes planning and preparation for the colder winter months with the growing grains and hay in the summer to supplement your stock in the winter.
There are some horse ranches in the southern area of the state as well. Ranchers should have enough land to grow their own hay and stock up for winter, as some years the state does see a feed shortage. Hay can also be imported from Washington State.
