Alaska's Kenai Peninsula is truly one of the world's most beautiful places. During their Alaska fishing vacation, many anglers choose to give their weary arms a day off from fishing and often choose to spend this day enjoying the many splendors of the Peninsula region.

In addition to some of the other (non-angling) trips that we offer, these are some of some of the neat things that you might do when visiting the Kenai Peninsula:

Sunset over Alaska's Cook Inlet just south of the Kenai River.

August Sunset over Cook Inlet

  • Visit Portage Glacier about forty miles southeast of Anchorage just off the Sterling Highway. Visitor's Center and boat cruises of the lake at the glacier's terminus.

  • If you're looking for an aerial perspective of Kenai Fjords National Park, consider a helicopter or plane tour of the immense Harding Icefields across the bay from Homer.

  • Moose get to play through on Alaska Golf CoursesPlay golf at any of the several courses in the Anchorage area or on the three courses in the Kenai / Soldotna area: Birch Ridge in Soldotna; or the Kenai course (not a bad track, by anyone's standards); and a new course that opened in Nikiski (just outside of Kenai) in August 2001.

Where else but Alaska can you tee it up at midnight with regulation balls?

  • Era Aviation offers Nostalgic Air Cruises from Anchorage. Available from late May through the end of September. An elegantly decorated DC-3 serves as the plane for these scenic flights that have varying routes (depending upon weather) over such areas as Denali, Prince William Sound, the Alaska Range, or the Harding Ice Field. The 40's revisited!

  • A humongous pile of lures from Alaska's Kenai RiverStop by the Visitors' Center in either Kenai or Soldotna. You can see the mount of the world-record king salmon, or perhaps look at the famous 'Kenai Snag' comprised of thousands of lures (and other assorted fishing gear) that was drug up from the bottom of the Kenai River.

  • Perhaps spend an afternoon on the world-famous Homer Spit. Visit the Salty Dog Saloon or drop by the numerous merchants, restaurants, or watch the charter boats come in with the day's catches. Make sure to bring lots of film as the vista across the bay is spectacular!

  • A visit to the new Alaska Sealife Center in Seward which offers visitors numerous sealife exhibits.

  • A guided tour of the Kenai / Swanson Lakes Canoe Trail systems.

  • Visit the small town of Ninilchik and visit the most photographed  building on the Kenai Peninsula: the Russian Orthodox Church sitting atop a bluff overlooking Cook Inlet (below).

These are just a few of the seemingly endless possibilities of some of the non-fishing activities available of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, if you have a Peninsula business that offers a unique experience, email us and tell us about it! Perhaps we'll include it here!
