The oldest American settlement west of the Rockies, Astoria was established in 1811 on the Columbia River. The city is known as the "Little San Francisco of the Pacific Northwest" because of the colorful Victorian homes clinging to its steep hills. A fine example of that late 1800s architecture is the Flavel House, now a museum with period furnishings.

With a population of only about 200, the small and quirky hamlet of Whittier is the gateway to beautiful Prince William Sound as well as Anchorage, which is only 60 miles away. Established as a secret military outpost during World War II, Whittier now attracts visitors for its unspoiled glaciers and wilderness. Glacier cruises along Prince William Sound make for a memorable afternoon – think sheer fjords, seaside mountains and calving tidal glaciers. A picturesque train journey to Anchorage along the Alaska Railroad is another fantastic diversion; you’ll enjoy awe-inspiring views of Turnagain Arm Fjord and Portage Valley. Chugach State Park is also nearby and excellent kayaking and hiking opportunities abound.

The tiny village of Kodiak clings to the "Emerald Isle" of Kodiak, which is known for its breathtaking natural beauty.

Dutch Harbor, Alaska
Located on Amaknak Island and linked via bridge to Unalaska Island, Dutch Harbor is a place of historical significance, stunning natural beauty and resilient people. Walk in the footsteps of the indigenous Aleut, or Unangan, people by following trails established thousands of years ago. The paths take you through swaths of wildflowers dotting green valleys from which rise volcanic peaks surrounded by the sea, a windswept land so pristine you will forget that signs of civilization are nearby. Even so, Russian fur traders and American armed forces did make their marks here. The U.S established a naval base in 1940, and Dutch Harbor became a theater for World War II when the Japanese bombed it in 1942. While intriguing museums recall a turbulent past, today Dutch Harbor embraces the peaceful nature of its scenic surroundings and thrives as a fishing “village” that brings in the largest catch in the country.

Petropavlosk (Kamchatka), Russia
Accessible only by air or sea, the remote city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is surrounded by what UNESCO describes as “one of the most outstanding volcanic regions in the world.” The snowcapped peaks of Koryak and Avacha loom directly behind the city, and the terrain is so mountainous that one cannot see the horizon from any point in town. Admire one of Russia’s most majestic landscapes from any number of vantage points: a cruise through the bay, an ATV excursion to the base of an active volcano, a challenging hike to a summit or a helicopter ride through the clouds. While rugged natural beauty may be the biggest draw, the town also holds historical significance as a military outpost and the region’s capital. Some worthwhile museums and a bevy of monuments combine to the tell the story of Russia’s most easterly city, from its founding by Vitus Bering through the Crimean War and the Soviet era.

Each change of season brings fresh new beauty to the coastal city of Aomori. The blush of cherry blossoms greets you in spring, while in winter the forests of the surrounding mountains are so heavily laden with snow that the trees appear to be giant white beasts. The port is dominated by Aomori Bay Bridge, offering great views of both the city and the harbor and mirroring the striking triangular design of the Aomori Prefecture Tourist Center. The skyline’s contemporary angles result from the city’s destruction during World War II and rebuilding thereafter, but Aomori also celebrates ancient societies that settled here millennia ago. Surprisingly, you’ll be reminded of this prehistoric past at the 21st-century museum of modern art, as its architecture pays homage to the nearby excavations of ancient ruins. After exploring the museums and markets, relax at the caldera lakes and natural hot springs in the lush countryside.
