Depart from your preferred airport and arrive in Anchorage, AK. Prior to arriving, you will need to book your flight from Anchorage to Kenai, AK through a company by the name of Ravn Alaska. If you call Ravn, they are very helpful and will assist you with purchasing the proper flight based on your arrival time in Anchorage. These flights are affordable, typically around $85. The flight to Kenai is roughly 20 minutes and offers breathtaking scenery. An Alaska Steelhead Co. host will be there to greet you upon your arrival to the Kenai airport! While in Kenai, most guests choose to purchase their fishing license, make a quick stop at the liquor store and/or pick up anything they forgot to pack. You and your host will then make the scenic 40 minute drive to the lodge and cabins.
(Optional) Saturday arrival in Anchorage is for our guests that want to see Anchorage, have friends to visit, or have too far to travel in one day, thus making it easier to split up the travel over 2 days by staying in Anchorage on Saturday night. You are then able to take one of the first Sunday morning Ravn flights out of Anchorage to Kenai, enabling you to get a half-day of fishing in when you arrive!
Keep in mind that flights to Anchorage sometimes arrive early and if you can get to baggage claim and get your bags quickly, you may be able to make an earlier Ravn flight to Kenai – IF seating is available. Then you are possibly able to fish for a few hours when you arrive. If you would indeed like to try and get a little fishing in on Sunday afternoon, also try to get on the earliest flight available out of your airport to Anchorage.
Guests will enjoy five full days of guided fishing, relaxation and local Alaskan cuisine. Fishing itinerary will vary as it is dependent upon the guest’s expectations, weather, ability, and fishing conditions.
After breakfast, you will be driven back to the Kenai Airport by an Alaska Steelhead Co. host to catch your Ravn flight back to Anchorage. Please make Ravn flight arrangements to allow for plenty of time in Anchorage to make your return flight home. Or, if guests arrange for an evening flight out of Anchorage, our staff will be able to take you out for a half day of fishing before being transferred to the Kenai Airport.
