Kodiak Holidays

Kodiak Island lies in the Gulf of Alaska, off of the tip of the Kenai Peninsula. Famed for its natural beauty, this rather large island is actually the second largest in the United States and supports some very unique local wildlife. King Crabs are native to the offshore area of Kodiak, as is the island’s most famous resident: the gigantic Kodiak ... Read more
brown bear. If you are a bear enthusiast, look no further than Kodiak, where the Island location’s separation from mainland Alaska has allowed for both crab and bear to grow king sized. Covered by lush forests, and deep bays, Kodiak is truly an outdoorsman/woman’s paradise. World class fishing, hunting, hiking and camping opportunities are available pretty much anywhere as long as you aren’t immediately in a town. This island has survived serious earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic activity; including the largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century at Mt. Novarupta, that left the area in total darkness for 60 days. Still, despite the natural disasters that have in the past threatened this unique ecosystem, Kodiak and her wildlife have endured, making this one of Alaska’s most pristine environments.

Our day in Kodiak was more fun than expected. We were here on a cruise ship & decided to spend our time in the town (a pleasant one mile walk from our ship, even though a shuttle from the ship was offered). The locals are friendly, the air is fresh & there are enough attractions, eateries & shops within the town to keep you occupied.There are many outdoor/nature activities available in the area including hiking, fishing & biking.
