Being home to 69 people, Igiugig is a community with strong educational values, elder respect, and people with strong wills. Located on the sloping banks of the Kvichak River, Igiugig is a prime site for subsistence fishing and hunting, tourism, and travel.
Nestled alongside Alaska's largest freshwater lake and the crystalline Kvichak River, Igiugig offers an unforgettable experience: trophy rainbow trout, world's greatest sockeye salmon run, breathtaking scenery, and exceptional hospitality.
