Once a Russian settlement dating back to the early 1800’s, Ninilchik currently stands as a must-visit Alaska destination featuring stunning scenery and ample outdoor activities. Outdoor enthusiasts will love locations like Ninilchik State Recreation Area and Deep Creek State Recreation Area, which offer opportunities for sightseeing, claiming, hiking, and more. Visitors should stop by the town’s famous Russian Orthodox Church that’s more than two centuries old, and the town’s most distinctive building.



Right in the heart of the peninsula sits the historic, charming and picturesque village of Ninilchik. Home of the Kenai Peninsula Fairgrounds and the popular Kenai Peninsula Fair, Ninilchik has, for several years, hosted one of Alaska’s most dynamic weekends.
