Day-by-Day Itinerary

Day 2

Day 1 Salmon Fishing

Your Alaska Family Adventure will begin with a pick up at your hotel (3 designated pickup spots) in Anchorage at 7:30 am for the scenic and comfortable trip to Great Alaska Adventure Lodge. After a thorough orientation, you’ll enjoy lunch and meet your guide and head out for the fish.  Depending upon the season you'll powerboat or drift boat the Kenai or Kasilof river.  All trips are based upon species availability- ask your adventure expert for the species available during the time frame you are booking.   Return to lodge for happy hour and dinner.

Day 3

Day 2 KEnai Fjords Glacier Cruise

Today we'll cruise the incomparable  Kenai Fjords National Park! On the way to Seward we'll stretch our legs by walking to the face of a retreating Glacier close enough to almost touch.  Then it's on to Seward to  spend the rest of this day cruising and seeking calving Glaciers, Humpback whales and Orca, charming Sea Otters and endangered Stellar Sea Lions. Return to the lodge in time for happy hour, dinner and evening activities for the energetic kids and relaxation on the deck for the adults 

Alaska Hiking

Day 3 Wilderness Hiking

Today you'll enjoy one of the amazing local trails that make the Chugach National Forest and Kenai National Wildlife Refuge justly famous.  Choose from a moderate, mostly level and fairly short trail to the Russian River falls to view salmon leaping towards their native spawning grounds- or select a more aggressive hike that will break a sweat and culminate in a fantastic view of the surrounding snow capped's your choice and there are many to choose from!  Return to lodge for happy hour, dinner and overnight.

Day 4  "End of the Road" homer tour

No one should miss Homer and the “End of the Road”. See early Russian churches, active volcanoes, mountain vistas and probably baby Moose with their mothers.  Your first view of Homer and Kachemak Bay is truly unforgettable and we will spend a fun filled day exploring the art and rustic uniqueness of a bush community at “Land’s End”.  A famous sawdust floor tavern, wine tasting, local artist galleries, even a boat from "A dangerous catch" call this amazing area home.  Return to lodge for happy hour, dinner and overnight. 

Refuge Paddling

Day 5  Refuge paddling/Return to Anchorage


Today's adventure is a paddle into the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge on board safe and maneuverable kayaks.  This is a truly unique area, and it's serpentine meanderings are home to Moose, Eagle, Fox, Beaver, Brown and Black bear and even Lynx and Wolves.  The quiet kayaks allow us to explore it all without disturbing the animals.  We'll enjoy lunch at our riverfront tent camp on the edge of the refuge.   Return to lodge at noon, check out at 2:00 and return to Anchorage via commuter air or charter float plane.
