Welcome to Prince of Wales Island
This vast, rugged place is a destination for the adventurous at heart, loaded with hiking trails and canoe routes, USFS cabins and fishing opportunities. The 990-mile coastline meanders around numerous bays, coves, saltwater straits and protective islands, making it a kayaker’s delight. And, for anyone carrying a mountain bike through Alaska, a week on the island is worth all the trouble of bringing the two-wheeler north. The island has the most extensive road system in the Southeast: 1300 miles of paved or gravel roads that lead to small villages, or shot-rock logging roads heading who-knows-where.
