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 $90. 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, we make a quick stop at the liquor store and/or pick up anything our guests forgot to pack. You and your host will then make the scenic 45 minute drive to the lodge and cabins.
Day 1 Early Arrival (Optional):
(Optional) Early arrival in Anchorage is for our guests that want to fish the arrival day, 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 for a night. You are then able to take an early flight the next morning out of Anchorage to Kenai, enabling you to get a full or half-day of fishing in when you arrive!
Day 2 (Standard Trip):
Day 2 arrival is for guests that have no interest in arriving early. All we ask is that you your flight itinerary allows you to be in Kenai by 5pm at the latest.

After arriving in Kenai we will make a stop at the liquor store, pick up any items that guests forgot to pack, and head to the lodge. Appetizers are at 4:30pm and Dinner is at 6:30. Check in is at 3pm unless you plan to hire a guide for your arrival day. You will need to book you flight to Kenai around 8am in order to fish the arrival day.
