“The Kenai Peninsula of Alaska extends 150 miles from the Chugach Mountains, south of Anchorage. It is separated from the mainland by Cook Inlet and Prince William Sound. It has a long native and explorer history, first ‘mapped’ in the 1780s. The Kenai Mountains (7,000 feet) run along the peninsula, along the coast of the Gulf of Alaska. Much of the mountain range is within gorgeous Kenai Fjords National Park. The boating, hiking, biking, and natural geography is stunning and immense, including several glaciers and icefields. The fishing in river tributaries and saltwater is fantastic with salmon and world-famous halibut. There are several campgrounds in the area that fill up quickly, so be sure to make reservations in advance.”

Nearby Attractions

“There is so much to do in the area. If you can, make the drive into Alaska on the Alaskan Highway(s) to take in the beauty of Northern British Columbia and the Yukon as well. Be sure to eat the amazing seafood (and fish it if you can).”
