Kodiak, Alaska Travel Guide

Alaska is almost overwhelming to wrap your head around. It’s massive -- one fifth the size of the lower 48 states -- and the natural beauty is genuinely difficult to put into words. When thinking about retreating into Alaska for a summer (or winter, if you’re daring) holiday, it’s tough to settle on a location. Consider the case closed, because Kodiak is a clear favorite. Located on the southernmost archipelago of the United States’ largest state, Kodiak is jam-packed with natural beauty, verdant landscapes, and humble people. While its population was once up towards 25,000 during WWII, today it hovers around 6,000, and the community is as welcoming as any in Alaska. To put things in perspective, ⅔ of the island is only accessible by ATV or four-wheeled vehicle, so Kodiak is definitely a place for those looking to get off the beaten path.

Things to Do in Kodiak, Alaska

Kodiak is home to some world-class fishing spots, and people from all over the world flock to Kodiak to try their hand. Just a few miles outside of town you can find some of the most coveted salmon fishing in the world, and it’s even a location frequented by those on the show Deadliest Catch. The American and the Olds River offer sushi-grade salmon that average around 20 pounds per catch. Come here and book a guide to take you out on the waters.

It’s tough to lump all Kodiak has to offer into the category of “outdoor adventure.” There’s whale watching, tide pooling, backpacking, hunting, birdwatching, and so much more. While the town itself certainly has some perks, getting outdoors is a must. The island’s best-known park is the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge, where the most popular is bear watching. The park is home to some 3,500 bears that average about 800 pounds.

Make your way over to the Fort Abercrombie Historical Park to learn more about the town’s involvement in World War II. As the story goes, apparently Kodiak’s cloudy weather spared it from attack from the Japanese. Make your way to the Historic Park to get the scoop on how Kodiak dodged a bullet.

Best Time to Visit Kodiak, Alaska

Like much of Alaska, Kodiak is only warm for a few months out of the year. Visiting between May and September will be your best to take advantage of the outdoor fun. Luckily, these are also the months in which the fish are most active, which makes it a great fishing getaway.
