Alaska Wildland Collection

The 7- or 8-day Alaska Wildland Collection is a seamless Alaska adventure that promises remote and in-depth exploration of the magical Kenai Peninsula and Kenai National Park, with three distinct Kenai lodges as home base. Spend two nights each at the classic Kenai Riverside Lodge, situated along the bank of the beautiful Kenai River; at Kenai Backcountry Lodge, a historic and ecologically managed lodge; and at Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, the first and only lodge in Kenai Fjords National Park. 

Take a scenic rafting trip down the Kenai River, searching for moose, eagles and salmon. Hike in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, where alpine tundra and splendid views of Skilak Lake make epic photographing opportunities. Journey farther south to Seward for a boat ride into the remote Kenai Fjords National Park. Hike to Russian River Falls where salmon run upstream or pick berries on the Hideout Overlook Trail. Board a custom catamaran to view glaciers, whales and other marine wildlife. Sea kayak and canoe on pristine shores and relax in the lodges’ libraries, common areas, private cabins, saunas and sun decks. Return to Anchorage on the historic Alaska Railroad through backcountry wilderness that is truly astounding.

Along the way, enjoy an array of guided activities to suit your interests and energy level. In the evening, enjoy fresh fare like grilled salmon and comfortably appointed accommodations while you soak up the authentic Alaskan hospitality. Alaska Wildland Collection is the perfect blend of wild, remote Alaska and backcountry lodge hospitality, all at a great value.
