General Information

Description - 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.

Attractions - 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.

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 southeast travel region includes Kodiak and the Aleutian chain of islands as well as the vast area to the east of Anchorage.
