What's included in this trip
Kenai Peninsula SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Kick off the Kenai Peninsula experience in Anchorage. This is Alaska's largest city so perhaps choose to arrive early and visit some of the city's attractions, take a walk around peaceful Delaney Park or soak up some history at the Anchorage Museum.
Travel around the Kenai Peninsula to explore its many lakes, glaciers and mile-upon-mile of fascinating coastline. Keep an eye out for beluga whales playing out at sea while travelling along the Turnagain Arm on the journey to Homer.
Visit Hope, one of Alaska's first gold rush towns where the historic essence is still present. In free time, hire a bike and hit the nearby trails. Or for the brave, Hope offers the most exciting whitewater rafting in Alaska.
The opportunities are boundless in the city of Seward. Take a boat tour around the glaciers of Kenai Fjords National Park, hike up Exit Glacier to the Harding Icefield, ride on a dog sled or go halibut fishing. Keep an eye out for marine mammals such as sea lions, orcas and dolphins who all frequent these waters. There's also the possibility to take a flight over the Kenai Peninsula to capture gorgeous views of sculpted icebergs.
Admire the rugged east coast, where glaciers tumble down from the mountains and towards the ocean, on the journey back to Anchorage. Why not toast the end of a memorable Alaskan vacation with a celebratory group dinner.
