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

Our trip to Alaska was one of endless superlatives and memories to last a lifetime.  A trip to Alaska is more than just a road trip, it is an experience.  Alaska's beauty is matched only by its vastness.  There is a genuineness to the people that we haven't experienced elsewhere in a very long time.  Once you go to Alaska, you will have the unrelenting urge to return again and again.
