In southern Alaska, rain-soaked conifer forests, consisting mainly of sitka pine and hemlock spruce, stretch all the way to the Pacific. Crowberry, bilberry and yellow violets grow along the creeks. The highest mountains in the south is the Alaska Range, stretching a thousand kilometers right across the state. This gigantic mountain range of steep granite pyramids is covered with innumerable glaciers and intersected by sheer valleys.

Mt McKinley, at 6 187 m, is the highest mountain in North America. It has also given its name to what is probably the most beautiful and important National park of the continent. The park is surrounded by high mountains, the valleys are covered with dark forests and swift waterfalls rush over steep cliffs. Glittering glaciers, emerald-green ponds, foaming creeks and wonderful rock formations make up the background in this fabulous natural scenery.

Alaska's animal life has not changed since the first white man arrived. Moose, Wapiti, Brown Bear, Grizzly and Black Bear roam the desolate forests, and Beaver and Otter make the crystal-clear lakes come alive. Bighorn Sheep and Mountain Goat, relatives of the European Chamois, graze on the mountain slopes. Each spring, the salmon arrives and no waterfall is to high, no current too strong.

THE HUNT
Kodiak Island and the Alaska Peninsula are among the most bear-rich areas in the world. For example, 2 500 Brown Bears exist on Kodiak Island. The size of the bears can be impressive: bears of 12', weighing around 1 000 kg, have been laid down.

The hunting seasons vary somewhat between the hunting areas, but April-May and August-November are suitable for Kodiak Island. The climate during these months is usually acceptable, with a daytime temperature of 10-15 degrees centigrade. In October, expect night frost.

In certain areas, spring hunting for Grizzy and Brown Bear can be combined with Black Bear hunting. In the autumn, the bear hunts can be combined with Mountain Goat, Moose and Dall Sheep.
