When planning my trip to Prince of Wales Island in Alaska I never imagined I would have as much fun as I did. Most of those planning vacations do not think to put Alaska as the top choice on their list, but after this trip, I am going to make sure to recommend Prince of Wales Island in Alaska to all my friends!
The island had over a 1,000 miles of roads, both paved and gravel, to take me to various locations. The 4 nights I spent there was not nearly enough to get me to all the places I wanted to go. One of the most magnificent things I was able to do was explore the grottos of the Prince of Wales Island. These grottos, which are pretty much caves, are abundant to the area. The most interesting cave that I visited was the El Capitan cave. The tour of the cave lasted about 2 hours and was lead by a well-informed park ranger.
I had decided that I would like to stay in a location which would enable me to explore more of the scenery and forests by myself. I also wanted somewhere where I could enjoy the view from my room. This is why I decided to stay at the Alaskan Escape cabins. These cabins were all waterfront properties and were fairly affordable. They enabled me to be close to fishing areas, which is something that I enjoy doing. Watching the sunrise and sunset over the water was a great sight for me. The cabin also had many amenities, such as a fully equipped kitchen, a freezer, a smoker, a crab pot and it even came with a powerful Lund Skiif for my fishing expedition.
My trip to Prince of Wales Island in Alaska is one that I will never forget. From mountain biking to fishing, to just enjoying the scenery and canoeing, Alaska had it all. I hope to return soon to continue my adventure.
