Zona central del sur

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


My husband and I, along with another couple, visited Alaska last September.  We flew into Fairbanks, and took the train south for 7 nights, with stops along the way for 1 or 2 days, ending in Seward.  We were blessed with the most beautiful weather and temperatures. The highlight of our trip had to be seeing Denali, clear as a bell, for 2 days in Talkeetna. Because it was so clear, we took the charter flight over Denali, an experience we will never forget, and would recommend to all visitors who are lucky enough to see this great mountain. 

We were very impressed with Alaska's trains, both the views from the upper cars where we rode, and enjoying our meals in the dining cars with beautiful scenery to view while we ate.  We stayed in a number of hotels and lodges along the way, with Talkeetna Lodge being our favorite.

We hope to return to Alaska, with a different itinerary so that we could also visit the coastal areas that we missed, and get in some "fishing" time. 

I know we were so fortunate to have the weather we had and the views and experiences we enjoyed. Our 500 or so great  pictures remind us of this wonderful trip....
