Guided Features

  • Guided hiking on the magnificent Cottonwood Trail is the highlight of your stay at Kenai Backcountry Lodge. Learn about the many ecosystems in the area, and learn to identify native plants and the important role each plays in our mountainside forests. Climb to the top and reward yourself with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and Skilak Lake below, or take a more relaxed approach with a leisurely pace. It’s up to you!
  • Not up for a hike? Stay in at the Lodge and relax! This is your vacation - enjoy it your way.
  • Inquire about after-dinner kayaking on Skilak Lake. If it’s a quiet night with safe water, guides may take guests out for an evening paddle.
