Top Reasons to Go

Fishing: In summer, salmon fill the rivers, which you can fish on the bank or from your own boat with a guide. Fishing for halibut and rockfish is also possible from charter boats out of Homer or Seward.

Wildlife: Urban moose, black and brown bears, sea lions, Dall sheep, gray whales, and bald eagles are all common in the region.

Scenery: Boasting views of volcanoes and mountains that fall right into the water, the Kenai Peninsula is a buffet for the eyes.

Glaciers: Get up close and personal with glaciers on a tour to ski, dogsled, or hike a glacier’s surface, or paddle out to one.
