The panorama of Southwest Alaska ranges from the windy grasslands of the Aleutian Islands, the longest archipelago in the world sweeping 1,000 miles westward into the Pacific Ocean, to the surreal volcanic landscape of the Katmai National Park to the emerald green island of Kodiak to the unsurpassed bird populations of the Pribilof Islands. Southwest is rich with culture, history and wildlife.
Both Yupik Eskimo and Aleut traditions blanket Southwest communities. Visual displays of the Russian era can be found as well as World War II historical landmarks. Southwest Alaska boasts wildlife opportunities for the true naturalist. The Pribilof Islands in the Bering Sea are home to 230 species of birds. Kodiak Island is home to a healthy population of Kodiak brown bears, the world’s largest carnivorous land mammals. On the mainland, thousands of brown and black bears congregate at McNeil River and Brooks River falls to gorge on summer salmon.
