General Information

Description - In Alaska’s heartland, you’ll see the continent’s tallest peak, Mt. McKinley, and wide expanses of tundra. The forests are teeming with wildlife and bird life ranging from the formidable grizzly to stately herds of caribou to the state bird, the Willow Ptarmigan. Experience summer’s midnight sun or the winter’s northern lights.

Attractions - Wildlife can be seen on the highway that runs by Denali National Park, carrying visitors to and from Anchorage and Fairbanks. Interior is the original home of Alaska’s Athabascan Indians. Gold miners, farmers and fur trappers later discovered the riches of this region.

Recreation - Danali park is a major attraction of the Alaskan interior, with Climbing and hiking very popular activities. Numerous fishing opportunities exist.

Climate - In contrast to the southeastern region, the interior receives very little precipitation. The winters are long in this region with spring, summer and fall taking place from May through September. The western coast of Alaska experiences long, cold winters and short, chilly summers. This area is very far north and at the mercy of huge water bodies that don't warm. Southwestern Alaska experiences foggy, wet summers with high temperatures reaching 60 degrees F. Winters are severe on this long peninsula of land with storms rising from the surrounding waters frequently. The average rainfall for the region is 75 inches/year.

Location - The Interior region of Alaska is in the central part of the state, nort of Anchorage. Fairbanks is near the center of the region.

Report: This time of year the rivers and lakes are finally freezing over. The ice is not thick enough yet for winter recreation. Eventually the waters become solid enough for ice fishing, snow machine travel and dog sleds
