Homer is a quaint town nestled on the shore of Kachemak Bay offering breathtaking views of glaciers, mountains and wildlife. Homer is known to many as the 'Cosmic Hamlet by the Sea,' but it was made famous in Tom Bodett's tales as 'The End of the Road.'
Nestled among rolling hills and overlooking Kachemak Bay and the Kenai Mountains, this seaside community has 5,400 residents and another 8,000 beyond the city limits. In addition to the downtown area of Homer, a unique attraction is the Homer Spit, a long, narrow finger of land jutting 4.5 miles into Kachemak Bay.
Homer is the gateway to superb outdoor Alaskan adventures. Tours are available for brown bear viewing, guided kayak trips, hiking, seabird rookery, flight seeing, glacier viewing, horseback riding, claming, sailing, glacier skiing, and more! Outfitters provide packaged or custom trips, whatever suits your schedule!
