alaska bucket listAll Alaska Outdoors Lodge remains one of the top-rated ecotourism, hunting, and fishing lodges on the Kenai Peninsula thanks to our knowledgeable guides, secluded wilderness locale, and proximity to North America’s best salmon runs. Anglers young and old from across the globe have the Kenai Peninsula circled on their “Alaska bucket list” because of The Last Frontier’s seemingly endless adventure opportunities, such as glacier cruises, bear viewing, and salmon fishing in Alaska. For your convenience, we’ve hand-selected three of our favorite wilderness adventures that you’ll be able to scratch off your Alaska bucket list after a week in heaven here in Soldotna, AK.

Salmon Fishing in Alaska

All Alaska Outdoors Lodge is located along the eastern banks of serene Longmere Lake within minutes of the best salmon fishing in Alaska along the Kenai River. While we offer a wide variety of Alaska fishing trips on the Russian River, Skilak Lake, Deep Creek, and Cook Inlet, most visiting anglers aim to “cross” the Kenai River off of their Alaska bucket list. If you browse through our Alaska fishing vacation packages, you’ll quickly notice that we offer several types of Kenai River excursions. Your group will hop aboard a customized, four-stroke riverboat equipped with a world-class fishing guide and top-of-the-line equipment in search of trophy salmon. Salmon fishing in Alaska simply doesn’t get any better than the Kenai River during the golden summer months!

Alaska Bear Viewing

Bear viewing at Wolverine Creek remains one of the top Alaska bucket list items among visiting anglers and ecotourists. For just $395, you’ll hop aboard a float plane en route to the remote Big River Lakes region near Redoubt Bay on the west side of Cook Inlet. Upon arrival, you’ll embark on a short boat trip to Wolverine Creek, which is overpopulated with spawning salmon, thus attracting dozens of wild brown bears. These brown bears are so preoccupied with this massive salmon run that visitors can get within a matter of feet from these magical feeding beasts. This dreamlike expedition takes approximately six hours in total, so remember to pack a lunch for the trek.

Glacier and Wildlife Cruise

An Alaska bucket list is incomplete without a glacier and wildlife cruise inside Kenai Fjords National Park. You’ll depart from nearby Seward, Alaska, en route to this jaw-dropping national park which is highlighted by ancient glaciers, humpback whales, adorable puffins, and some of the most beautiful stretches of the Pacific Ocean along Resurrection Bay. If you’re not planning on salmon fishing in Alaska, we highly recommend joining us on an awe-inspiring excursion to Kenai Fjords!
