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.

Visitor Comments


We took a cruise/trip Alaska in June of this year. This was the most enjoyable trip we have ever taken. We made sure that we can go back. We have never seen so much of prestine wilderness in our life. Bears, Moose and Eagles. I have never seen so many Eagles in one place. The Glaciers were beautifull. We want to go back to Alaska....
