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.

Regional Explorer

Pribilof Islands

The Pribilof Islands are a small cluster of four islands located in the Bering Sea about 300 miles off the western coast of Alaska. They are desolate, wind-swept places where the abundance of wildlife has made them visitor attractions despite the inhospitable weather. The four islands have two communities, St. Paul and St. George, consisting mostly of Aleut Indians.
