No trip to Alaska is complete without a visit to the famed Kenai Peninsula, home of giant king salmon, active volcanoes, and unsurpassed coastal wonders. We'll start our adventure in Anchorage, Alaska's largest city, and wend our way south to Homer, literally as far as you can go while still being on land. During our journey, we'll hike unique trails, gaze at glaciers, look for humpback whales, orcas and puffins while we sea kayak, and explore two of Alaska's small communities to get a feel for the unique characters that choose to live in The Great Land. If you’re interested in seeing Alaska's interior beauty, including Denali National Park, join us the week before on Alaska: Fairbanks to Anchorage
This trip is designed for women in good health and physical condition who want to see Alaska. We have designed the itinerary to minimize time in the van and all activities are moderate. The rating for this trip is a 2, suitable for any woman who regularly walks at a brisk pace 3 - 4 days a week for 35 - 45 minutes. Rating: 1  3 4 5.
On this trip we combine hiking in forests and along coasts, kayaking in Kenai Fjords National Park, exploring small towns, and looking for the always interesting marine wildlife (not to mention moose) that the Kenai Peninsula is known for. All activities are at a moderate level and suitable for beginners.
With the exception of the first two nights at Hampton Inn, we will be staying at several different family run lodges and hotels in double occupancy rooms with ensuite bathrooms. All are clean, comfortable, and will give you a feel for the real Alaska. In addition we'll spend one night in rustic conditions (but with beds and outhouses) in a yurt.
Below is the proposed itinerary for the trip. As is true on any adventure travel trip, plans for any specific day may be modified due to weather considerations, unforeseen circumstances, new opportunities, and group interests.
