The Alaska womens hiking trip is an adventure on the Kenai Peninsula. This adventure offers the active women big rewards for a little physical effort. Here, wilderness is accessible to anyone with a desire to stretch their legs on a dirt path to get out and explore one of the United States’ treasures. And as Lonely Planet best describes this place, “in every forgotten corner you’ll be close to the natural world, the mountains, the lakes, the rivers and the people that make Alaska wild.”
This Alaska women’s hiking trip and multi-sport adventure begins in Anchorage. From there, we travel south to Seward for spectacular hiking on Mt. Marathon, and the Kenai Fjords’ famous Harding Icefield Trail which provides hikers with a view of the vast icefield that feeds all of the glaciers in park. We will get a chance to see the National Park from the ocean side on a 6-hour glacier and wildlife cruise with ample opportunities to photograph wildlife like humpback whales, puffins, and sea lions. Our home for 3 nights will be on cabins near Lake Kenai.
The second half of the adventure puts the glaciers in our rear view mirror as we traverse the Kenai Peninsula to Homer. From Homer, we board a water taxi and cross Kachemak Bay to Otter Cover. For the next two nights, we enjoy the seclusion of this remote location with hiking and kayaking activities.
The final day, we cross back over Kachemak Bay, head east toward Anchorage, and stop for a thrilling river rafting trip on Six Mile Creek before ending our adventure in Anchorage that evening.
