Cold Bay

The Izembek landscape surrounding Cold Bay includes volcanoes with glacier caps, valleys and tundra uplands that slope into lagoons adjoining the Bering Sea. Cold Bay is located at the western edge of the Alaska Peninsula. Two active volcanoes provide a spectacular backdrop on a clear day. Abundant shorebirds and waterfowl, as well as caribou, fox and brown bear make it a popular spot for sportsmen and naturalists.

Because of its central location and the all-weather airport, Cold Bay serves as the regional center for air transportation on the Alaska Peninsula and as an international hub for private aircraft. State and federal government and airline support services provide the majority of local employment. The community offers a state-owned 10,415-foot-long paved and lighted runway, a 5,125-foot-long paved crosswind runway, FAA Flight Service and Weather Service stations. The Cold Bay Terminal Building, located near the airport, has space available for lease.
