Title says it all really.

I have a weird feeling like I "need" to visit but why? apart from wilderness and big mountains what is there?

Is it expensive, are the people friendly etc etc

I'm not talking about the Denali area.

Mainly wilderness with billions upon billions of lodge pole pine until you get a few miles North of the Arctic circle where it turns to tundra. There are bears moose and mosquitos and if you go North, carribou - several hundred thousand in a couple of herds.

The people are very friendly. You will probably need to take a plane to wherever you decide to go. The flight itself will probably be worth the effort of getting there. Logistics is something that needs to be considered if you're going somewhere remote.

Try typing Arrigetch into Google if you are thinking of going somewhere off the beaten track a bit. Here's a link to a company that does flights out of Fairbanks: http://www.wrightairservice.com/
