Route map for the seven day birding trip from Anchorage to Kodiak

On this week-long itinerary, visit Anchorage, Alaska's largest city, and venture out to the Kenai Peninsula and Kodiak Island. Planning your visit in mid-April through mid-May can land you in the middle of the spring migration and several festivals in the communities of Anchorage, Homer and Kenai. However, there is an abundance of shorebirds in the area throughout the year, particularly on the ferry route. Barren Islands is home to nearly half a million seabirds, and East Amatuil Island is an oasis for the 18 million species that benefit from its location.
