Alaska Peninsula Area

The Alaska Peninsula cannot be accessed by road . Commercial travel is available to the region by airplane or intermittently by ferry on the Alaska Marine Highway System. Weather conditions make travel around these areas difficult, and unreliable. The biggest hub community on the Peninsula is Cold Bay, which is where people travel to access the Izembek National Wildlife RefugeCold Bay is an air base that was built during WWII. It was abandoned just after the end of the war. Still visible on the landscape are roads, jeep trails, airplane runways, and bunkers, some of these features are still used by locals and visitors. Villages like Nelson Lagoon, King Cove, False Pass, and Sand Point on the Shumigan Islands started out as salmon canneries. They are accessible by ports and small airports.
