General Information

Description - Home to over half of Alaska’s population, Southcentral is a playground of activities from world-class fishing to hiking and wildlife viewing. With mountains and lakes, Southcentral offers the advantages of remote wilderness, but is linked via roads.

Attractions - World-class rainbow trout and salmon shimmer brilliantly, beckoning to prospective anglers. Southcentral has the amenities travelers seek, while serving as a gateway to the wilderness experience.

Recreation - Unique recreation opportunities present themselves in Alaska's wild lands. Walrus, whale and brown bear watching are three exciting adventures for visitors to this region. Water-oriented activities abound as do hunting, fishing, and photography.

Climate - The climate in Alaska varies with terrain and region. The south-central region of the state is most temperate because it is protected from cold northern winds by the Alaska Range. The large bodies of water that lies closely to this area create a stabilizing factor for the air temperature. Southeast Alaska is wet. An average of 80 inches of rain comes to this region directly from the Gulf of Alaska.

Location - The Southcentral region includes Anchorage and the parks and forests of the southern parts of Alaska north of the Inside passage.
