Things To Do Around Homer

Homer is surrounded by 3 major national parks – Katmai National Park, Kachemak Bay State Park, and Lark Clark National Park. Each park offers incredible wildlife experiences. From majestic bald eagles soaring over turquoise waters to brown bears fishing for salmon along a riverbank, these areas are home to an abundance of different species. Visitors can observe animals like moose, wolves, whales, sea lions and otters in their natural habitats while enjoying breathtaking views of wild landscapes.

These parks are not accessible by Alaskan road, so the best way to get to them from Homer is by boat or plane on a tour or cruise!

If you are looking to explore the Alaska backcountry by land, we have a trip designed just for you! Destination Alaska purchased five brand new Argo Conquest 950 Outfitters. These 8×8 amphibious tracked vehicles will take you places that other machines simply cannot go.

If you want to escape Homer for the day, Seldovia is a small city with big charm, and certainly worth the water taxi ride to visit! This picturesque fishing town hosts stunning views and pristine beauty. Visitors can enjoy all that nature has to offer while experiencing the unique culture and history of this special place.

Stop by the visitor center to learn about the refuge’s past and present, or click here for a 360 tour! You can join a tour boat embarking to refuge islands with plenty of seabirds and sea lions, or walk along the short Beluga Slough Trail leading from the visitors center to Bishops Beach, a fantastic spot for tidepooling!

Known throughout Alaska as a vibrant artists haven, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the creative side of this scenic town!

The Homer Farmers Market is a vibrant and colorful place to shop for fresh, locally-sourced produce. Located in the heart of downtown Homer, this bustling market offers up some of the freshest fruits and vegetables around, as well as baked goods, jams and jellies, homemade crafts and more.

Open every week May – September
