Silversea Luxury Cruises A HOMER (Alaska)

HOMER (Alaska)

The serrated ridges of the snow-flecked Kenai Mountains - emerging across the water - provide a wild and wonderfully cinematic setting for the humble town of Homer. Reaching out into this vast watery panorama is Homer spit, a narrow tongue of land, which bridges out into the broad expanse of Kachemak Bay. A former gold-prospecting camp, Homer still has plenty of treasure to offer, sitting here amid Alaska's priceless wildlife and landscapes. View more

Almost five miles out along the spit, you suddenly chance across Lands End Resort - the perfect place to absorb the blockbuster views across the water, and sink juicy oysters. Tiny planes scatter from Homer into the Alaskan wilderness, on the hunt for grizzly bear watching opportunities. Encounter these most extraordinary creatures as they wade for fish, and play with their young on the river banks. The bears are just scratching the surface of the wildlife that lives here, however, and you can take boat rides, or kayaks, out onto the marine estuary, to get close to the beautiful minke, beluga and humpback whales that patrol the waters. Hike to extraordinary views, or jump in a helicopter for a pulse-raising ride above this wild, whitewash landscape - to skirt over glaciers draped between mountain peaks. If you’d rather stay grounded, relish the views of distant icy flows spilling down mountains, as you eat in the town's restaurants. Anglers can enjoy leisurely afternoons, tossing their hooks into the salty waters, and picking up rich rewards in monstrous halibuts and salmon in this fishing capital. Halibut Cove is, unsurprisingly, one of the prime fishing spots near Homer.
