This area includes the islands of Kodiak, the Pribilofs, and the Aleutians, as well as the Bristol Bay and Bethel areas and the Alaskan Peninsula. This area is accessible by air or water from Anchorage, with limited ferry service by the Alaska Marine Highway System.
For naturalists, 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. 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.
