Found along the Pacific Ring of Fire, the Aniakchak National Monument is one of the least visited travel destinations in Alaska, and this means an opportunity for you to do what few have done. Aniakchak National Monument is home to a 2,500’ deep volcanic caldera formed 3700 years ago. The National Monument and Preserve offers outstanding backpacking and wildlife viewing. The terrain offers a variety of treeless tundra, ancient volcanic ash flows, and riparian river habitat. A backpackers dream, the vibrant landscape, great hiking, and unbelievable solitude make this a backpacking trip of a lifetime.
