Kenai Backcountry Adventures are the purveyors of backcountry travel and experience.











For nine years KBA has been operating out of Seward, offering a wild selection of professionally guided excursions for all levels of adventure seekers.

Kenai Backcountry Adventures will take you places that remain nameless.

KBA is prepared to undertake any adventure awaiting in the backcountry. With KBA, you’ll travel in small groups, assuring a safe guide to guest ratio that will keep everyone engaged, learning and having fun. Learn more about their pre-packaged and customizable trips on their website



Operating year-round, KBA is unafraid to explore the places people don’t normally go. 


KBAKBAKBA’s base camp is located at 11724 Seward Highway, across from Herman Leirer (Exit Glacier) Road, which is their headquarters for adventure. KBA is the only outfit in Seward that offers Bear Viewing tours, with round-trip transportation from Seward to Lake Clark National Park (yes, that means air fare) included in booking! For winter-warriors, KBA’s year-round operation will guide you through winter-wonderlands on your choice of transportation: snow machines, snow shoes, skis, split-boards, crampons. Many trips can be tailored to your desired level of adventure. 




Despite the varied and abundant itineraries KBA offers, backcountry education is at the forefront of their mission as well. Kenai Backcountry Adventures offer courses in Pack-Rafting, Backcountry Skiing & Split-Boarding. Keep up-to-date with everything they offer on their website





“The way we operate our trips,” says Kyle McDowell of KBA, “truly ignites that adventurous spirit that we all have within us. Our focus is to allow guests to naturally evolve through their own journey, while experiencing these wild places and cultivating a deep meaningful connection to oneself and the environment.”
