Kenai Backcountry Lodge Review

Getting off the road, and beaten track, is the most authentic way to experience Alaska, and the Kenai Backcountry Lodge is about as true as it gets, with access only by boat across Skilak Lake. There you can stay in a traditional Alaskan tent cabin or a log cabin, taking all your meals, included in the price, at the main lodge. Hot water and showers are at the shared bathhouse, and the company stresses a low-impact, environmentally friendly facility. Trip cost includes 4 days and 3 nights (one night at the Kenai Riverside Lodge, two nights at the Backcountry Lodge), transportation, and all guided activities—such as hiking, kayaking, a Kenai River Canyon raft trip, motorboat tours, and wildlife viewing. With all the moose, caribou, wolves, bears, eagles, and spawning salmon, chances are you'll see more animals than people during your stay.
