Destination guide

Kenai Peninsula: Alaska's most accessible wilderness

The Kenai Peninsula serves as one of the most easily reached wildernesses in the state. It's popular enough to have a long list of adventures available, like kayaking through magnificent fjords or hiking up through the snow-capped mountain trails, while still having the feeling of remoteness. In the peninsula's towns there are some extraordinarily good historical attractions and if wildlife spotting is important, you've come to the right place. When you stay at a Kenai Peninsula Borough vacation rental, you'll easily be able to reach the Katmai National Park, for up-close encounters with grizzly bears.

Things to do

Go panning for gold in Kenai Peninsula

If you can tear yourself away from the activities, try to make some time for Kenai's historical attractions. The Copper Landing Historical Society and Museum features old log cabins from the early 20th century, while the award-winning Pratt Museum has an emphasis on the region's culture and art, as well as a gorgeous 10-acre botanical garden. You don't need to expend any energy to immerse yourself in Alaska's wilderness, if you hop aboard the Alaska Railroad for a short journey through the mountains and snowy forests. Alternatively, step back into the gold rush days at Prospector John's Gold Prospecting in Cooper Landing.


All 4 seasons in 1 day in Kenai Peninsula

You can't go wrong if you book up a Kenai Peninsula Borough vacation rental between May and September, when the days are long and the skies are bright. It's by far the most popular time, with families jetting in to Kenai to explore the great outdoors. Outside these months, the weather in Alaska can be highly changeable. It's not uncommon to experience all 4 seasons in the same day. If you visit during the low season, the trick is to pack for all eventualities. The upside is far fewer travelers on the trails and a seriously drop in rental prices.

Natural features

Watch magnificent bears fish in Kenai Peninsula

The creeks, marshes and alpine mountains provide a habitat for an astonishing number of birds. Of the over 450 species of avifauna in Alaska, the large majority are found near your Kenai Peninsula Borough vacation rental. That said, the highlight for most is catching a glimpse of one of the grizzly bears. The Kenai Peninsula serves as the gateway from Katmai National Park where you can get safely up close to these huge beasts, while they catch fish or splash around in the water. It's a humbling, once-in-a-lifetime experience that shouldn't be skipped.
