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

We had so many wonderful experiences during our 5 week trip that it is hard to choose, but I know my husband's would be the brown bear viewing trip he took with Ken and Chris Day of Emerald Air Service in Homer. Their small group was flown to Katmai National Park and Chris led them to an exquisite meadow, where at times, they simply lay in the warm summer sun and watched these magnificent animals. They had the priviledge of being within about five feet of a mother and cub, who chose to share their day and space with those strange animals called humans. The respect that Chris has for the bears and the information she shares with those who go with her on these day trips give insights and memories that will last a lifetime.
