Kodiak sits on Kodiak Island, Alaska’s largest island. In fact, Kodiak Island is the second-largest island in the United States.
Often referred to as the Emerald Isle, this beautiful Alaskan destination is a truly stunning site to behold. When you book a charter flight to the jet charter airport in Kodiak, you’ll soar over the rugged beauty this region has to offer. The blue and verdant landscape is absolutely breathtaking. Nature enthusiasts will hear the call loud and clear.
While in Kodiak, no trip would be complete without a visit to the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge. This roughly 2,800 square mile refuge covers more than two-thirds of the island and encompasses some of the most diverse habitat in Alaska. Here you’ll find:
- Rugged snow-capped mountains
- Peaceful alpine meadows
- Wetlands loaded with wildlife
- Gorgeous grasslands
- Awe-inspiring spruce forest
For those history buffs that feel drawn to the history of World War II, the Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park should be included on your itinerary. The fort was built during the second world war, and even though it lies in ruins, there’s so much to explore. Tour the Kodiak Military History Museum, discover the Ready Ammo bunker, and study the coastal defense installation located along the steep cliffs.
If you visit Kodiak during May, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the Kodiak Crab Fest, the island’s most famed event. The weeklong event takes place in late May and features parades, foot and kayak races, fishing contests, and more king crab to enjoy than you could ever imagine.
