At nearly double the size of Wales, the Kenai Peninsula is a rich wilderness region with a vast proportion designated as Kenai Fjords National Park. This region is filled with snow-capped mountains and glacier-fed fjords.
The Kenai Peninsula extending south from Anchorage, known as “Alaska’s Playground”, offers the highlights of Alaska in an easily explored microcosm. It is one of the most accessible wilderness areas in Alaska, offering stunning scenery, calving glaciers, many hiking, biking and rafting options and fantastic wildlife viewing including marine mammals and birds. Prince William Sound to the east of the Kenai Peninsula is a huge area of protected islands, fjords and glaciers, home to sea lions, otters, humpback whales, harbour seals, porpoises and orcas.
