Aleutian Range

The Aleutian Range is the mountain range of the Alaska Peninsula in southeast Alaska. It is especially notable for its large number of active volcanoes. The mainland part of the range is about 1000 km (600 mi) long; the Aleutian Islands are (geologically) a partially submerged western extension of the range that stretches for another 1,600 km (1000 mi).

The range is almost entirely roadless wilderness, and Katmai National Park and Preserve must be reached by boat or plane.
