Official State of Alaska Vacation and Travel Information
Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula offers adventure opportunities galore, from world-class fishing and river rafting to wildlife viewing and photography. Hike to the ice-blue Exit Glacier in Seward or kayak along the coves of Kachemak Bay near Homer. Take in Alaska Native and Russian history in Ninilchik, look for moose and bears in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, or spot whales and other marine life in Kenai Fjords National Park. And, if you’re into fishing, you’ll want to try salmon fishing on Kenai River or launch off a beach for halibut fishing in Anchor Point. Listen to live music in Hope or watch runners race up Seward’s Mount Marathon – one of the toughest 5K races in the world held every 4th of July. The Kenai Peninsula is an easy drive south from Anchorage, with stunning views of Turnagain Arm and the Chugach Mountains.
