Towns in Southeast Alaska are joined by the Inside Passage and most are accessible only by water or air. Juneau, the state capital, is the largest town in the region with a population of 29,000. Clinics and hospitals are located throughout the region.

Shaped by the staggering force of massive glaciers millions of years ago, Alaska’s Inside Passage boasts wildlife-filled fjords and lush island scenery — habitat for bald eagles, sea lions, porpoises and whales. Its mountains are carpeted with majestic forests. Inside Passage Alaska is home to Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian Indians whose history is reflected in towering totem poles. Russian settlers left a legacy of onion-domed churches gleaming with icons.
