Pay a Visit to Kodiak, Alaska's Emerald Isle
With rolling, tundra-clad mountains ringed by spruce trees and dramatic cliffs, it’s little wonder that Kodiak has earned the nickname of Alaska’s “Emerald Isle.” This Southwest Alaska island and its biggest city both share the same name; Kodiak city offers easy road access to unusual cultural museums and fascinating World War II relics, while the island and seas around it are home to some of the best fishing and bear-viewing in the state.
If you’ve ever dreamed of visiting Kodiak, the high season for most activities is from July to September—but you can also have great fun during the shoulder and off seasons. Keep reading for more on how to get here and what to do once you arrive.
