Travelling to Homer

Most of the Homer's visitors are still from mainland USA and Canada. Fairly understandable but publicity for Salmon and Halibut fishing can stretch far and wide. Most visitors arrive through a combination of road, rail, sea and air. Information on this can be found below.


Road, rail, sea and air

There are roads, there are sea links and there is an airport. Not the sort of thing you would get in a capital city of Europe or the USA, but that's not why you come here. Its the great outdoors and the excitement of the frontier.

Homer is 110 miles from Anchorage with numerous flights operating daily year-round. You can also get to Homer via regular scheduled shuttle service from Anchorage. There is also seasonal shuttle service from Seward. Once in Homer, there are car rentals, several taxi companies and bike rentals available.

By Road & Bus

Take you choice. We suggest you look at the map and take care, especially dependent on time of year. Its about a 4.5 hour drive from Anchorage or a 45 minute flight.

You can take the Homer Stage Line , a bus service that runs between Homer and Seward, Alaska or Homer and Anchorage Alaska

By Train (But no Train to Homer itself)
The "Rail Belt Corridor" (Seward, Homer, Anchorage, Talkeetna, Denali and Fairbanks)is what many people come to travel and benefit from the magnificent scenery. The spectacular nature of this scenery and the vastness of Alaska is surely what everybody comes for. So we suggest you drive (for Homer only) or take a train (Seward is closest to Homer) other places, not fly, or you may miss the experience of a lifetime.
By Air (45 min's from Anchorage)

Alaska is one of the towns that does not have jet activity. Alaska Airlines is the only jet airliner service in Alaska, and flys between many of the most densely populated towns. There are usually with one to two flights a day.To serve the more isolated townships, Alaska Airlines has associations with Pen Air & Era Aviation. Don't be surprised to be on a different plane even if you booked through AA! Check the routes here..

These internal carriers/hoppers fly sound 18- to 40-seat turbo-prop planes to larger rural/isolated communities, and 8- to 10-seaters to the smaller settlements.

By Sea

These are mostly going to be short or long haul cruises. A great way to see the coastline and enjoy a few days of relaxation. Check out the links on the right.

Homer is a port of call for the Alaska Marine Highway for travelers heading for Kodiak and Dutch Harbour. Once a month during the summer, the M/V Tustumena travels 400 miles along the Alaska Peninsula to the Aleutian Islands, stopping in six different villages: Chignik, Sand Point, King Cove, Cold Bay, False Pass, and Akutan.
