Get a Taste of Southeast Alaska
The whales,bears,and birds are so abundant in Alaska,thanks to the food sources available.With long hours of summer daylight,the concentration of nutrients and pristine state of the environment make the Inside Passage one of the most productive spots on the earth.
Seafood aficionados look for delicate sablefish,freshly caught salmon and halibut,delectable sea scallops,sweet Dungeness crab,tender spot prawns,and crack up three foot long legs of delicious king crab.
Southeast Alaska also has some of the easiest berry picking you could find,anywhere.In the summer months you can find beaches strewn with wild strawberries,blueberries and huckleberries in the forest,wild currants,salmonberries,and a local’s favorite–the Nagoonberry.
Every little town seems to have its own smokehouse where they prepare and sell smoked fish,each with their own unique brine.Smoked black cod melts in your mouth and unctuous smoked salmon bellies and collars are the choice cuts on the fish.
The Southeast region of Alaska is 97%federally protected land,including the world’s largest wilderness(St.Elias World Heritage site),America’s largest national forest(the Tongass National Forest),Glacier Bay National Park,and Misty Fjords National Monument.
With all this comes an unparalleled opportunity for solitude;watching animals in their natural habitat,human powered adventures,and reconciliation with a world untrammelled by humankind.
