  • Hubbard Glacier

    Hubbard Glacier

    Hubbard Glacier, the largest tidewater glacier on the North American continent, and one of few which are actually advancing. It has been thickening and advancing toward the Gulf of Alaska for over 100 years, in stark contrast with most glaciers, which have retreated during the last century. If Hubbard Glacier continues to advance, it will close the seaward entrance of Russell Fjord and create the largest glacier-dammed lake on the North American continent in historic times.

  • Sitka

    Sitka

    Sitka which began as an important Tlingit Indian village called Shee At’ika, and translates roughly as ‘settlement on the outside of Shee’. Shee is the Tlingit name of Baranof Island. It remained the capital of the U.S. Territory of Alaska from 1867 to 1906, when the seat of government was moved to Juneau as a direct result of the Gold Rush. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, Sitka became a full-scale naval base. At one point during the war, Sitka’s population totalled 37,000. After World War II ended, however, the city settled into a quieter existence. The biggest boom for Sitka came in 1959 when the Alaska Lumber and Pulp Company built a mill near the city. Today, picturesque Sitka is known for fishing and its many historic attractions.

  • Ketchikan

    Ketchikan

    The Tlingit Indians originally settled this area as a summer fishing camp, where five different species of salmon spawn every year. By the mid-1930s, Ketchikan had aptly named itself the ‘Salmon Capital of the World’. In 1936 alone, the city packed more than 1.5 million cases of salmon. Once a quintessential Alaskan logging and fishing town, Ketchikan was a workday place where visitors could wander the docks. But drastic declines in both the logging and fishing industries forced the city to change course, and today Ketchikan is a charming Alaskan tourist town catering to cruise ship guests. Ketchikan also boasts the world's largest collection of standing totem poles, and the nearby Misty Fjords National Monument.
