Head To This Eerie Island For A Real Life Adventure In Alaska

Admiralty Island in Southeast Alaska lies about halfway between the state capital of Juneau and the island town of Sitka. About 60 miles southwest of Juneau, this island has far, far more bears than people. This “Fortress of the Bear” has over 1600 brown bears and is a thrilling place to visit just to see the animals. So, head to Admiralty Island in Southeast for an Alaskan bear viewing adventure.
