Petropavlovsk

The extravagant tastes of the Czars extended all the way to the Russian Far East, which lured with the promise of caviar, sable and mink. Today, the draw is volcanoes—some dormant, some active—rising majestically from a chromatic tundra.

6/26/2019

Formerly called the Catherine Archipelago, the Aleutian Islands comprise some 150 mostly volcanic islands extending twelve thousand miles west of the Alaskan Peninsula. Attu Island is covered with a luxuriant, dense growth of herbage, including grasses, sedges, and many flowering plants. But the Aleutians are best know for their wildlife. More than 10 million birds nest on the islands, and visitors can see puffins, tufted ducks, harbor seals, sea otter and reindeer, just to name a few.

Adak Island, Sweeper Cove

6/28/2019

Few places in the world are as unique as Adak. This modern community in Alaska's Aleutian Islands is situated between Asia, North America and Europe. It lies on the great circle navigation routes for both marine and air transport…halfway between Seattle and Japan, 1300 miles southwest of Anchorage, 1400 miles from Magadan in Eastern Russia and close to the natural resources of the Kamchatka Peninsula and Sakhalin Island. It's unique geographic location makes Adak a supply and support center for commercial, nonprofit and government organizations developing opportunities throughout the North Pacific and the Bering Sea. The island features a 2 billion-dollar working community, with modern airport, ice-free deep-water port, major fuel storage capabilities, and 30-thousand acres of land available for lease or sale.

Dutch Harbor

Dutch Harbour is a port in the Aleutian Islands. Geologically, the archipelago is a continuation of the Aleutian Range, which is on the Alaskan mainland, and contains a number of volcanic peaks. Few trees, all of stunted growth, are found, but grasses grow in abundance. Although a few good harbours are found in the archipelago, navigation is dangerous because of almost perpetual fog and numerous reefs.

Elfin Cove

7/5/2019

Tucked on the north shore of Chichagof Island, Elfin Cove gives you a rare look at what it means to “live off the grid.” No vehicles are used here because there are no roads. Wooden boardwalks connect the few structures. Considered a sport fishers paradise, this harbor is amazingly beautiful. Last census counted 32 residents in this coastal town.

Juneau
Suggested Private Excursion
7/6/2019
7/6/2019

Juneau is one of America's most beautiful state capitals, with the looming summits of Mt. Juneau and Mt. Roberts providing a gorgeous backdrop. Once part of Alaska's Gold Rush, the city boasts natural and manmade attractions. Downtown is filled with many vibrant buildings, including must-see St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church, which houses artwork and artifacts dating back to the 18th century. From the bright mural in Marine Park to the carvings in House of Wickersham, downtown is filled with Alaska's own unique brand of culture and architecture. Often hailed as Juneau's most impressive sight, nearby Mendenhall Glacier is approximately 12 miles long and 1.5 miles wide. See the glacier on a float trip or a "flightseeing" adventure, or hike up one of its trails for a closer inspection. For a bird's-eye view, the Mt. Roberts Tramway offers a short, six-minute trek to the top of Mt. Roberts, 1800 feet above the city. If wildlife is your passion, scenic Admiralty Island has the world's highest concentration of brown bears.
