About Hoonah, Alaska

Hoonah roots lie in the fishing cannery business, but now the town focuses more on tourism and hosts thousands of international guests who arrive by cruise ship throughout the summer season. The best way to enjoy Hoonah’s unspoiled nature is to take part in many adventurous outdoor activities like kayaking, whale watching and whizzing down the world’s largest zip line. This is a very small town with a year round population of just over 750 people. Due to its remote location, everything must be flown or ferried in.

Weather in Hoonah, Alaska

Due to its unique location in on the water in southern Alaska, Hoonah rarely sees temperatures above 70°F (21°C), even in the height of summer. You should expect cool summers with temperatures ranging from 40-high 60 °F and heavy to moderate year round precipitation. Warm layers and waterproof jackets and rain boots will be crucial to stay comfortable.
