Winter fun on the Kenai River

Winter in Alaska is Wild!  And, isn’t that what Alaska is truly famous for?  Breathtaking snowcapped mountains. Lakes & streams motionless in ice.  Sleeping bears. Sleeping mosquitos. Sleeping tourists.  Alaska in winter is peaceful, uncrowded, and beautiful beyond imagination.

Alaska winter wildlife viewing can be incredible on the Kenai Peninsula, with Moose blanketing our city like door-to-door politicians on campaign, and Bald Eagles so plentiful you’d think they were flocks of seagulls at first glance.

Winter recreationg opportunities abound too.  With some of the best world-class nordic skiing, alpine skiing, helicopter skiing, snow boarding, and back-country skiing to be found anywhere on the planet, you could spend a whole week doing nothing but that and not be bored for a single minute.  Still, making time for some Northern Lights viewing, dog sled adventures, snowmobiling, ice fishing, flightseeing, snowshoeing (all followed by a nice hot sauna at Kenai Riverfront of course) would be a nice way to round out your stay with us.
