Top Reasons to Go
Spend time in the company of bears: The Alaska Peninsula has the world's largest concentrations of brown bears, which congregate near salmon runs each year.
Learn about native culture: Native communities celebrate and support their cultural traditions. Come to the Bush for everything from blanket tossing to arts-and-crafts exhibits.
Go fishing: You'll see 100-pound salmon, 8-pound trout, and be the only one on your block to know what sheefish tastes like.
Experience the Land of the Midnight Sun: Only north of the Arctic Circle is the sun above the horizon 24 hours a day; in Barrow the sun doesn't set from mid-May to August.
Get outside like never before: Want the world to yourself? Bush Alaska includes millions of acres of remote parklands and wildlife refuges, including the least-visited national park in the United States.
