Located on the Alaska Peninsula, 290 miles southwest of Anchorage, the Alagnak Wild River cannot be reached by road.
The Alagnak may be directly accessed via air taxi flights chartered from Anchorage, King Salmon, Iliamna, Kodiak, Soldotna, Homer, or other nearby Alaska towns and villages. Regularly scheduled commercial flights to King Salmon (AKN), the location of National Park Service administrative headquarters and the starting point for most Alagnak adventures, are available from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) via PenAir and Alaska Airlines.
