Last month, I had the pleasure of spending five days exploring Kodiak, Alaska before attending the Adventure Travel World Summit in Anchorage. Most people probably think of bears when they hear the name Kodiak, but there’s much more to do than bear viewing during your visit. Although, bears are worth the trip!

Discover Kodiak’s list of 100 Things To Do provided lots of inspiration for daily excursions. I didn’t accomplish all 100 in five days, but did have an unforgettable trip while trying.
