Kenai Backcountry Lodge is located on glacier-carved Skilak Lake and is accessible only by boat from Kenai Riverside Lodge. Located at Milepost 50.1 on the Sterling Highway, Kenai Riverside Lodge is an easy two-hour drive from Anchorage or one-hour drive from Seward. The Seward Highway is one of the most beautiful drives in the United States, unspoiled by billboards or fast food chains and boasting plenty of pull-outs and view points along the way. Mountain passes, Turnagain Arm, and evidence of the 1964 earthquake near Portage are all popular places to stop and take in the vistas with your eyes and camera.
For our guests choosing round-trip transportation options, we will meet you in Anchorage at your local area hotel at 2:30 p.m., or at the Alaska Airlines baggage claim area at 3:00 p.m. On the last day of your trip, we will bring you back to either the airport or local hotel by noon.
