Kenai Peninsula — Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula extends 150 miles (240 km) southwest from the Chugach Mountains south of Anchorage. It is separated from the mainland on the west by the Cook Inlet and on the east by Prince William Sound. Most of the Kenai Peninsula is part of the Kenai Peninsula Borough.

Most Kenai Peninsula visitors arrive in Anchorage and journey south via either the Seward Highway or the Alaska Railroad. As you arrive onto the Kenai Peninsula, you pass the turn off to the small town of Hope. Further along you will see the junction of the Seward Highway, which heads to the communities of Moose Pass and coastal Seward, Alaska and the Sterling Highway, which heads east.

If fishing is your thing, the Kenai Peninsula’s river infrastructure supports some of the world’s most abundant salmon runs. Head to the coastal communities of Seward and Homer (and spots in-between) for halibut fishing that will challenge your upper arm strength and your freezer space. Charter operators will get you into prime salmon, trout and halibut habitat, ensuring you go home with plenty for your BBQ!
