Welcome to Afognak
Afognak is the second largest island in the archipelago, next to Kodiak. It is approximately 25 air miles north of Kodiak city and can be reached by an air taxi or charter boat. There are many wilderness lodges and guides located on this island and its neighbor Raspberry Island. These islands provide the only location for the herds of Roosevelt elk, which were transported from Port Angeles, Washington in 1928-1929. Afognak Island provides exceptional hunting and fishing opportunities and views of majestic mountains and beautiful protected bays. The Alutiiq museum has archeological dig sites and sited locations to Alutiiq petroglyphs. It was once home to a thriving Alutiiq village and Russian settlement called the Afognak village.
