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


This was my second trip to Alaska.  My first trip was in 1990 and I spent two weeks traveling from Anchorage to Denali.  This trip, I spent two months traveling from Tok, to Fairbanks, Denali, Anchorage and Soldotna in a motor home.  The people were great.  I enjoyed visiting the University of Alaska at Fairbanks and attending their free concerts and workshops.  Denali was spectacular.  I was surprised to see the significant growth in Anchorage.  Soldotna was a wonderful experience.  The small town environment with the major stores for shopping.

Thank you for the experience.  I plan to return in two years.
