Make your own way to Cooper Landing to meet your guide for your hiking tour in the Alaskan wilderness.
Step aboard the boat for a scenic ride to reach the hiking area in the Kenai Mountains. Take in the spectacular scenery as your vessel cruises along the turquoise waters of the glacial lake, and soak in the breathtaking views.
When you reach the lakeshore where your hike begins, follow your guide on an exhilarating trek through the back-country of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. Hear about the history and wildlife of the region as you walk along forested trails, through lush vegetation and ascend above the treeline for spectacular views of the Kenai Mountains and the Alaska Range.
Your guide provides snacks, water, tea, and a picnic lunch, which you eat at a scenic spot along the trail. Expect to have endless photo ops of landscapes with mountain vistas and delicate wildflowers.
Your guide can customize the hiking route to make it more physically challenging or relaxed. Please indicate your preference when booking.
At the end of your hike, your tour ends with return to your starting point at Cooper Landing.
We had a fantastic time on this tour and would highly recommend it. Marisa was our tour guide, and because the morning started out with rain and fog, we spent most of the time seeing wildlife by boat, and interspersing the time on the water with hikes and exploration. We ended up seeing seven black bears including a mom with her three cubs, which was amazing, dozens of eagles, and a beavers intricate home along with other birds and jumping fish. We would have enjoyed more hiking had the weather been better, but the scenery was breathtaking and Marisa was very knowledgeable, so we learned a lot about the area.
Marisa was an attentive and informative guide. Boat ride was just the right amount of time with two bear sightings. And the hike was a perfect fit for the day with a great view and lunch spot at the end overlooking the valley. Marisa had asked what kind of sandwich meat we preferred which I really appreciated. All in all it was a great day. The only disappointment was that the winds prevented us from crossing the water way to hike on the other side rather than take a hike off the road which my husband and I would have done anyway.
