The Kenai Peninsula has some of the best hiking trails in Alaska, and they're your playground today. Families with younger children may choose a moderate walk through the forest ending with a platform where you can watch salmon jump upstream to their spawning grounds. A more challenging option includes hiking up a mountain peak with views of glaciers and mountains in the distance. Your guide will help you select the best experience for you and your family!
Scenic Bald Eagle Float

Today you'll float the beautiful, turquoise waters of the Kenai River. Bald eagles are known to make their nests high in the trees along the banks of the river, giving you an excellent opportunity to spot them in their natural habitat. Moose, Brown, and Black Bears also make their home along the river -- there's no telling what you might see! Return to the lodge in the afternoon.

Rise early to squeeze in one last morning of fishing or a calm water paddle upstream to the riverfront tent camp on the moose river. Return to the lodge for a 2pm check out. You can return to Anchorage by commuter air from Kenai ($175 per person) or by chartering a plane right from the lodge ($250 per person)
