Kodiak, home to Alaska's largest fishing fleet, offers a taste of Alaska's Russian heritage.

Over 200 species of birds have been recorded in the Kodiak Archipelago, and bird watching is a main attraction. Special wildlife viewing is found at Miller Point within Ft.

Dutch Harbour is a port in the Aleutian Islands. Geologically, the archipelago is a continuation of the Aleutian Range, which is on the Alaskan mainland, and contains a number of volcanic peaks. Few trees, all of stunted growth, are found, but grasses grow in abundance. Although a few good harbours are found in the archipelago, navigation is dangerous because of almost perpetual fog and numerous reefs.

Cambridge Bay is located on the southeast coast of Victoria Island in the Region of Nunavut, Canada. The natives named the area Ikalultuutiak meaning “good fishing place.” The area has long been inhabited by Paleo-Eskimos who hunted caribou and seals in 1800 BCE. 500 years ago, the modern Inuit have populated present day Alaska.  In 1839 when the town was first visited by Europeans, the area has since been renamed honoring Prince Adolphus, Duke I of Cambridge. By the 1920’s trade became rampant and settlements slowly developed welcoming the Anglican & Roman Catholic missionaries that built schools and municipals soon after.



Visitors can enjoy the annual winter season outdoors hunting, dog sledding, camping and viewing wildlife. Visitors can fish the innumerable lakes and ponds, hike Ovayok Territorial Park or go birdwatching at Queen Maud’s Migratory Bird Sanctuary.

These waters are also know for their fisheries, and visitor will see the Inuit residents that have been fishing here for thousands of years.

Disko Bay

9/6/2017

 Disko Island is famous for its huge basalt mountains, and the highest peaks on the west coast are found near Uummannaq. The cliffs are home to spectacular colonies of seabirds, and the whole coast is busy with glaciers and ice fields. Some of the world's most productive and fast-moving glaciers are to be seen here.

Ilulisat
9/6/2017 7:00:00 AM
9/6/2017 8:00:00 PM

Ilulissat means icebergs in Greenlandic, and the town has a beautiful location at the mouth of an ice fjord that is filled with enormous icebergs, and is the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere. North of Ilulissat lies the settlement of Oqaatsut/Rodebay, where some of the old buildings from colonial times are today restaurants or huts available for rent. Ilulissat is a modern town but is also know as the dogsled town for all its sleds and snow dogs, and visitors can share in the sledding fun.

Nuuk
9/8/2017 7:00:00 AM
9/8/2017 4:00:00 PM

Nuuk was founded by the unfailingly optimistic Hans Egede - the Danish missionary with soul-conversions on his mind - who promptly named the settlement Good Hope. Today Nuuk is small by modern standards, with a total population of only 14,000. Despite a wealth of land and a paucity of people, Nuuk has insisted on housing the population in immense apartment blocks with imaginative names like Blok P - a kind of Gulag on ice - and the urban sprawl is now spreading out along the road to the airport. Kolonihavnen is a pleasant exception to the rest of Nuuk's Lego-city look: it's a picturesque 18th-century fishing village in the heart of Nuuk and gives some idea of what the town looked like before the industrial harbour was built. Nuuk's real attraction lies in its proximity to any number of excellent day hikes into the hinterland and the fabulous views from the tops of the nearby mountains. Organised tours, boat trips and the rental of equipment is easier from the capital.

Drawn by the pines, granite shores, fresh lobster and stunning views from Cadillac Mountain, captains of industry once kept summer homes here. The charming little town, and all the rest, remain. And the rocky boulder beaches on its shoreline are now Acadia National Park, a preserved expanse of vintage Down East scenery.

Newport, RI
9/14/2017 10:00:00 AM
9/14/2017 5:00:00 PM

Newport became important as a resort for wealthy industrialists who built their “summer cottages”, modeled after European palaces, here and elevated Newport to position of “Queen of Summer Resorts.” A tour of the mansions is a must. Newport is also famous as a yachting capital and site of international tennis championships. Colonial Newport boasts a collection of 18th- and 19th-century and pre-Revolutionary buildings. Colonial Downtown is best explored on foot, and much of the town was burned down during British occupation, but enough buildings survived to rival Boston in number of original 18th-century homes. George Washington’s assurances to Newport’s Jewish community of religious liberty encouraged them to build Touro Synagogue in 1763, making it the oldest in the nation. St. Mary’s Church is the oldest Catholic parish in Rhode Island. The Grand Newport Casino and International Tennis Hall of Fame held the first national tennis championship in 1881 and is now Tennis Hall of Fame with a museum on tennis fashions and trophies.
