Staying at the remote Kenai Backcountry Lodge within the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge offers a real taste of the wilderness. The lodge, located on a five-acre, private in-holding, began as a river-accessed hunting cabin back in 1935. Years later, the remodeled and expanded property is still road-free, and guests raft into the lodge. Alaska Wildland Adventures pride themselves on a ‘leave no trace’ style of eco-tourism.
Experience complete immersion in the wonders of wild coastal Alaska, and stay in spacious, bright yurts (circular, reinforced tent-like structures) on a private one-acre island. Inside, the yurts are warm and comfy, outside you'll find private decks, as well as boardwalks and fire rings. They also provide complimentary sea kayaks, rowboat, and fishing gear. All of this is just a 9-mile boat ride from the Seward Boat Harbor.
