The City of Unalaska provides a place that is a little quieter, a little less hurried and a lot less like the rest of the world.
Discover a destination full of breathtaking scenery from windswept volcanic peaks surrounded by the sea, to green valleys dotted with the vibrant colors of wildflowers in the summer and blanketed with snow in the winter. Dutch Harbor is a place with rich diverse history, where culture and commerce have co-existed since the mid-1700's, and where World War Two left an indelible mark on the land and its people. It is today the number one commercial fishing port in the nation.
Located on the Aleutian Chain, approximately 900 miles southwest of Anchorage, Unalaska/Dutch Harbor is full of opportunities. Hike on trails which were established thousands of years ago by the indigenous Unangan people whom have continuously inhabited these islands for roughly 9,000 years. Go birding, beach combing, berry picking, fishing, skiing or kayaking.
