Alaska Canoeing

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.

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.
