Ketchikan, a beautiful Alaskan town


I remember a television series that had been on TV for years and that is called "Doctor in Alaska", I was not at that time so fanatical on television and also did not go much with my age, but what I remember perfectly is how spectacularly beautiful all the landscapes were and how welcoming the town where the protagonist lived seemed .

This is the case that the other day I came across a chapter in this series and it occurred to me to write an article about one of the alaska places since I never wrote about them and they seem fantastic to me. Although the series was filmed in a town called Roslyn ... and it is in the state of Washington! A tremendous disappointment but I started looking for Alaskan towns to be able to tell you about one.

And searching searching I came, virtually speaking, to Kechikan, a town that has about 8,000 inhabitants and is the fifth largest in Alaska, so there it is as if it were a city. Originally it was a place where indigenous people lived, but with the Klondik Gold Rush It began to grow tremendously and became a supply base town and port of entry for miners.

It is a beautiful fishing village that is considered the world capital of salmon, title that in fact they have officially granted. It has grown so much in recent years that it has become one of the fixed stopovers that all cruises that visit Alaska make.

Despite having modernized, the indigenous past left a lot of mark and in the surroundings of Kechikan you can see a lot of Totems made by them. One of the most important attractions is the Fjords National Monument, which is also a spectacular landscape and in which you can explore the Misty fiords Thanks to a small cruise or a small plane excursion to fly over the impressive valleys of the area.
