Which Airport do I fly into?

For heading down to the Kenai Keys Fish On Inn, LLC you will fly into the great city of Anchorage. From there you will drive to Sterling, Alaska.

Do I have to be in “Good physical shape?”

It depends on what you plan to do once you are in Alaska. If you plan to go hiking or walking for extensive periods of time, your best bet would be an average level of physical condition. A lot of Alaska trails are rugged and involve a lot of incline and decline. Bring lots of water! If you plan to stay at the lodge and fish, you will just need to be able to walk down a couple flights of stairs to our fishing area.

When is the best time to visit Alaska?

Summer in Alaska starts in June and lasts through the beginning of September. Traveling to Alaska during these months is very easy going. Every month is unique and interesting!

Wildlife, Insects, Etc.?

On the Kenai Peninsula, it is very common to see moose, fox, martin, and even the occasional lynx. On the slower moving parts of the river, it is common to see bears hunting for fish. We recommend bringing some form of insect repellent, as mosquitoes can be thick in the shady areas.
