For those with a naturalist streak, few places on earth compare with the wonders of Southwest Alaska. Brown bears amble along the hills and plains, and more than 240 bird species inhabit Alaska’s Southwest region. The region’s terrain ranges from a landscape of volcanoes in Katmai National Park created by the 1912 eruption of the Novarupta volcano, to the windswept Aleutian Islands that make a 1,000-mile sweep toward Asia.

BARRY SULLIVAN
We flew into Fairbanks from Seattle. From there we took a land tour to the Arctic Circle. It was a great adventure, and we will always cherish the memory. We travelled from FAI to ANC on the railroad, and the scenery is beyond description. We love Alaska, and hope to return soon.
