Just a short distance from the Soldotna Bed & Breakfast is Alaskas’ premier canoeing trails. These are the Swan Lake and the Swanson River canoe trails. Steven and Monika have taken extended trips through these trails.
One day while on a canoeing trip with his mother, she and Steve saw the following wildlife in one day while paddling in a spectacular setting: muskrat, beaver, loons, various and sundry birds, Mama Moose swimming across the Lake, a WOLF and a BLACK BEAR! What a dream!
The Swan Lake canoe trail encompasses up to 30 lakes and 33 miles of river. The Swanson River canoe trail ancompasses up to 40 lakes and 46 miles of river.
But, don’t be intimidated by their size, they are equally beautiful for a one day or one week outing. And….. fishing and wildlife viewing are both spectacular.
We can arrange guided trips or provide recommendations for unguided outings.
We highly recommend for unguided tours the purchase of the book: “The Kenai Canoe Trails” by Daniel L. Quick. Northlite Publishing Company. The book has in great detail: maps, a description of campsites, lake descriptions, fishing information (what fish are in what lakes and how to catch them) and wildlife viewing information.
