Unalaska Alaska

Unalaska Alaska

The island of Unalaska is located on the Aleutian chain and is accessible via air or boat only. Historically, it was occupied by the Aleut or Unangan people for thousands of years. The Russians came in during the mid 1700's, establishing fur trading. In 1825 the Russian Orthodox Church of the Holy Ascension was built, and it still stands as a national historic landmark today. The town was attacked by the Japanese during World War II, with evidence of the armed forces bunkers and barracks still noticeable today.

Unalaska offers a variety of activities, but fishing is the mainstay for this island community. Sport fishing is always a top choice for visitors, as well as tours via land, water and air. Travelers to Unalaska can explore the island via the many trails, some of which were created by the original Aleut inhabitants, go kayaking, bird watching or visit the Museum of the Aleutians for further information on the history of the area. There is a wide assortment of accommodations available, from higher end resort style hotels to small and intimate bed and breakfasts. Restaurants in the area offer hearty home style menus, as well as the freshest seafood.
