Aniakchak National Monument and Preserve

  • Type: Natural Environ

No Lines, No Waiting!

Given its remote location and challenging weather conditions, Aniakchak is one of the most wild and least visited in places in the National Park System. This landscape is a vibrant reminder of Alaska's location in the volcanically active Ring of Fire as it is home to an impressive six mile (10 km) wide, 2500 ft (762 m) deep caldera formed during a massive volcanic eruption 3500 years ago. - NPS

Aniakchak is truly a wild and unpredictable place. For the prepared visitor however, these very characteristics can make for the adventure of a lifetime.

Visitors are encouraged to (and should expect to) invest a significant amount of time and energy in planning their visit.

The King Salmon Visitor Center, in partnership with the Alaska Geographic Association, offers maps, books, and other useful trip planning literature. - NPS
