wpe597.jpg (7277 bytes)A photographic haven lodged in history and in legend, Ninilchik is a fishing community that lives up to it's given name, "peaceful settlement by a river." The flavor of this old Russian fur trading village still emphasizes it's past prominence.

The old Russian Orthodox Church, built in 1900, and the historic cemetery overlook the entire rustic village of Ninilchik, and peacefully share the brilliant Alaskan sunset skyline with Mount Redoubt and Mount Iliamna, which are perched across Cook Inlet.

Ninilchik extends north and south along the Sterling Highway from mile markers 134 to 138. Today the main livelihood comes from commercial fishing, sportfishing and tourism. Many people gather at the Ninilchik small boat harbor to watch the colorful commercial fleet come in at high tide and "off load" their catch or travel through town to see the sport fleet 'catch of the day". Visitors to Ninilchik will find everything they desire for a perfect vacation, with services for every need.

Ninilchik has held the "Biggest Little Fair in Alaska" the 3rd weekend in August since 1951. Folks for miles around bring their garden produce, home crafts and livestock to the fair. The Kenai Peninsula State Fair has many foods to sample, exhibits to enjoy and fun for all!
