On one of my trips to Alaska it was a must for me to visit the Kenai Fjords National Park. This National Park covers over 587,000 acres. I decided on the 7.5 hour small cruise tour that would take me up close and personal with glaciers, abundant wildlife, including a pod of nine Orca whales, and some of the most breathtaking scenery Alaska has to offer. This cruise allowed me to see remote parts of the park.
My next stop on my Alaska adventure, I headed due south to the end of the Kenai Peninsula. Homer, Alaska is a small town, but big on activities. During the summer months Homer is a busy place, there is so much do to here you could easily spend a few days or a week.
I have been to Alaska twice and now working on a third trip and one quintessential must do is see glaciers, lots of glaciers. There are over 600 named glaciers in Alaska, but there are thousands more. Some are only accessible by boat, plane or rail, others you can get as close to as a stone’s throw. If you’re feeling adventurous, hike to see one!
