Kenai Peninsula

Why Visit

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.

About the Kenai Peninsula

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, glacial fed fjords and rich fishing lakes and rivers. 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.

  • Go hiking and biking along hundreds of miles of trails in the snow-capped Kenai Mountains.
  • Spend time fishing the turquoise lakes and rivers where four species of salmon are found.
  • Visit a number of small towns and communities which offer historical and cultural heritage.
  • Kayak a sheltered cove of the Prince William Sound looking for the sea lions, sea otters and whales that can be found here.
