Western Interior

Inside Passage Southcentral Southwest Interior Far North

The Western Interior is a vast area dominated by four wildlife refuges and a scattering of remote bush villages. The Yukon River winds through the region providing a connection between many communities. Galena is about 270 air miles west of Fairbanks and is a regional transport center for many of the surrounding villages as well as a staging area for trips into the Koyukuk, Kanuti, Nowitna and Upper Innoko National Wildlife Refuges. These three refuges are part of the vast roadless region that makes up much of northern and western Alaska.
