Home to over half of Alaska’s population, Southcentral is a playground of activities from world-class fishing to hiking and wildlife viewing. With mountains and lakes, Southcentral offers the advantages of remote wilderness, but is linked via roads. World-class rainbow trout and salmon shimmer brilliantly, beckoning to prospective anglers. Southcentral has the amenities travelers seek, while serving as a gateway to the wilderness experience.

Visitor Comments


Alaska is bigger and grander than one could ever imagine or than photographs can show.

We spent 11 days there the first part of August.  We flew into Anchorage and rented a car and drove around--from Valdez to Homer and points in between.  The wildflowers were in was beautiful.  Anchorage is a beautiful city...really everything about Alaska is beautiful.  And the people couldn't be any friendlier.  We spent 5 nights at the Alyeska Prince Hotel.  It is a wonderful hotel in a spectacular setting and the helicopter ride is something that we will always remember.

Thank you.  Phyllis Higdon
