Birding Seldovia

Duration: 1 hour or more

Seldovia's location at the northern edge of the Pacific Northwest rainforest habitat provides a very different avifauna than what you'll find in Homer just right across the bay. The birding is great year-round: spring migration is mid-April to mid-May; hummingbirds, oystercatchers, and swallows delight us over the summer; and winter is surprisingly productive with overwintering waterfowl and seabirds. Marine mammals can be seen up close in the winter, too!
One hour minimum, but add on as much time as you want. Spotting scope provided; loaner binoculars available to rent for $3. If you wish to venture beyond walking distance, cab fare is not included and will be an additional cost.

Rocky Ridge Trail Hike

Level: Moderate to Difficult

Duration: 2 1/2 hours

Total Length: 3.3 miles

Elevation Gain: 880 feet

Hike up and away from town for panoramic views of Alaska’s Ring of Fire volcanoes, Mt. Iliamna and Mt. Redoubt – or look down at scenic Seldovia Harbor and Hoen’s Lagoon. We’ll explore the mossy rainforest, starting near a rushing salmon stream near sea-level and meandering along switchbacks up through the woods to higher elevations. Salmonberries and ferns line the trail, and the songs of thrushes and warblers fill the trees. Parts of this trail are rugged and steep, but the climb is worth it.
