This One Destination Has The Absolute Bluest Water In Alaska

It’s not hard to imagine that gorgeous, glistening glaciers have something (okay, everything) to do with the place that is home to the bluest water in the last frontier. Mix in the towering Chugach Mountains combined with the massive Kenai Mountains that seemingly come together to provide the most picture-perfect backdrop to accent the piercing turquoise water. If you aren’t already addicted to this special spot in the place known as Alaska’s playground, you better get ready to fall in love.

Beautiful river, huh? We’d be lying if we said that we weren’t totally obsessed with this magical place. In fact, one of our favorite activities to enjoy on the river is catching and releasing world class trophy rainbow trout during the late summer and fall months. Check out the video below from Alaska Drift Away Fishing for an epic up close & personal look at one of Alaska’s most sought-after bucket list items for the angling addicts of the world.

If you love the Kenai River then we are certain you’ll agree that visiting the Kenai Peninsula is Alaska’s top outdoor attraction. Have you ever been? If so, we’d love for you to share your photos with us in the Facebook comments!
