Miller’s Landing’s battalion of expertly trained kayak guides lead explorers of all experience levels through awe-inspiring waterways on a variety of tours. Guests grasp provided paddles and nestle into buoyant vessels before setting out on their tour of choice. Floating quietly on tranquil waters, paddlers stare agape at the ghost forest of driftwood left in the wake of the 1964 Alaskan earthquake and travel to a salmon stream during the three-hour Tonsina Beach Paddle. They maneuver the surreal landscape to relax, splash, and skip rocks on the beach frequented by bald eagles and a clan of nude black bears.
During the 3.5- to 4-hour Bridal Veil waterfall tour, patrons can opt to paddle upstream through arches of salmons hopping in Tonsina Creek or hike to reach the sparkling Bridal Veil waterfall. They then float back down the otter-populated waters, peering into the eerie ghost forest hoping to avoid the much-feared headless kayakman. Bodies stay limber during the four-hour Sunset Yoga Paddle, basking in the brilliant reds and golds on Tonsina Beach as a flexible guide leads the group through an hour of yoga poses and meditations. Post stretching session, guests climb into kayaks to glide through beautiful scenery among bald eagles, sea lions, and harbor seals.
Nestled against the edge of the Kenai Fjords National Park, Miller's Landing retains much of the natural scenery and charm that surrounded the area when the Miller family first built its homestead on the site in the 1950s. The small community has withstood earthquakes, fires, and the Earth's transition from black and white into color to grow into a premiere camping destination where wilderness seekers can pitch tents or rent quaint cottages. The location surrounds its visitors in panoramic views of Resurrection Bay, Mount Alice, and Fox Island, inviting them to hike across its coastal trails.
Relaxing and adventurous activities complement Miller's scenic landscapes, with local experts leading boat tours and chartering fishing expeditions. Horseback tours trek across secluded terrain, whereas sea-kayak classes float in the shadow of snow and whipped-cream-capped mountains.
