In Alaska’s heartland, you’ll see the continent’s tallest peak, Mt. McKinley, and wide expanses of tundra. The forests are teeming with wildlife and bird life ranging from the formidable grizzly to stately herds of caribou to the state bird, the Willow Ptarmigan. Experience summer’s midnight sun or the winter’s northern lights. Wildlife can be seen on the highway that runs by Denali National Park, carrying visitors to and from Anchorage and Fairbanks. Interior is the original home of Alaska’s Athabascan Indians. Gold miners, farmers and fur trappers later discovered the riches of this region.

Visitor Comments


My visit to Alaska this year was to the Southwest area of the State, specifically the Dillingham area.  Through the excellent services and support provided by the Island Lodge on Lake Aleknagik.

I shared five outstanding days of fishing with my brother and brother-in-law.  We caught and released numerous "bows" and "dollys' and hundreds of  "silvers" and char during our excursions.

The weather in late Aug was cool, but comfortable and the scenery was picture postcard wonderful throughout the trip.

This was my second trip to the area and surely not my last.
