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

BARBARA SOWDERS
In July I visited Alaska for the first time.  Frankly, I had never had any particular desire to visit the state, but a friend convinced me to go.  We were on a Holland America cruisetour for 14 days.  After the day we arrived, we had a nine-day escorted land tour and then a four-day cruise to Vancouver.  It was an amazing experience!  When I returned home and people asked which part of the trip I liked best, I couldn't tell them because I loved it all.  Denali was unbelievable (even though I didn't get to see Mt. McKinley because of the weather) as were the McKinley Explorer train ride, the Yukon River boat trip, Dawson City, Whitehorse (especially the visit to Uncommon Journeys and Rod Taylor), the WhitePass/Yukon rail trip, Skagway tour, and the cruise through Glacier Bay and to Ketchikan.  Did I enjoy the trip?  I can hardly wait to come again!  It's unlike any other trip I've ever taken--breathtaking!
