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

Kodiak Archipelago

Kodiak is the principal town on Kodiak Island and the home of Alaska’s largest fishing fleet. From 1792 t 1799, the town of Kodiak was the capital of Russian America and reminders of their residency can be found at the Russian Orthodox Church and the Baranov Museum – formerly a fur storehouse and one of Alaska’s oldest wooden structures.
