Fisherman in Soldotna - Alaska

Fisherman in Soldotna

Sport Fishing (Fresh-Water)

One of the most popular activities in Alaska and you will love it I'm sure! Hooking a huge salmon must be a great memory for everyone who is visiting the Kenai peninsula an interested in fresh-water fishing from early May to August. Favourite pastime for many fisherman from beginners and professional sport fisherman equally.

During the annual migration that the sport fishing for the king salmon in both the saltwater and freshwater is excellent.

Well liked destinations for fresh-water fisherman: Anchor River, Deep Creek, Kenai River, Kasilof River, Russian River and Ninilchick river. I would recommend to buy a fishing guide in one of the equipment shops or visiter centres to make the best decision.

Equipment: Fishing Equipment, Fishing Licence, Bug spray, etc.

This is Valdez though:) - Alaska

Rafting!

The most popular watersport in Alaska. One of the best rivers for rafting is definitely the swift Nenana River which offers thrilling raft adventures to visitors of Denali National Park. It runs along the park actually where you'll find many rafting outfitters in the region that will suit you up and take you down the river.

The Cantwell outfitter semmed to be a good one, the more so since you can take a longer rafting tour starting from Cantwell. In the summer season there are at least eight small rafting companies operating just near Denali National Park.

If you are the adventurous type, try the whitewater rafting trip. You'll leave behind the Denali entrance and go towards Cantwell through a beautiful canyon which can be seen from car as well. Beautiful.

Directions: Parks Highway, head towards Denali.

Glacier Hiking at Matanuska Glacier - Alaska

Glacier Hiking at Matanuska Glacier

Glacier Hiking / Climbing

There are lots of different guided tours at Matanuska Glacier for all. Can be great fun for families and for people who have no experience and prefer a guided trip. There are easy hikes doable for everybody and do not cost more than about 20 dollars, of course longer hikes are more expensive. Visit the website to find out more. Well, I'm not interested in visiting the Matanuska Glacier anymore.

One of the not too many places that I didn't like while in Alaska. It was too busy. If you're an experienced climber/hiker you'll probably know where to go for the best experience.

Equipment: You don't have to bring anything beside money:))
