Known as the adventure tourism capital of Alaska, Homer is a playground for fishing, kayaking, bear viewing, hiking, and foodie and art vacations.
Kayak the coastline of coves and lagoons at Kachemak Bay State Park, or explore scenic hiking trails.

Take a water taxi across the bay, less than 10 miles from the Spit, to Alaska’s only designated wilderness park with beautiful trails throughout the park.
