Homer, Alaska - Transportation

Maps, Directions, Airports, Rental Cars, Shuttles,...

Transportation information for Homer is provided below. Travel information includes driving directions, maps, airport information and more.


Homer has a small regional airport at which connections can be made to other Alaskan cities, including Anchorage, 225 miles or a short flight to the north. Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport has connections all over the world, and more than 280 flights arriving daily.

Ground Transportation

Bring your car, your recreational vehicle, or even your boat to Alaska on the Alaska Marine Highway. They offer regularly scheduled ferry service for 33 communities in Alaska, plus Bellingham, Washington, and Prince Rupert, British Columbia. In addition, several cruise lines run this route from May through September.

Basic Directions

The scenic Alaska Highway links Alaska with Canada and the contiguous United States. It is fully paved with year-round services. If driving to Alaska from the lower 48, however, be prepared for an epic excursion: Anchorage is 2,435 miles from Seattle, and Homer is another 220 miles south at the very end of the Kenai Peninsula.

Relatively closer at hand, Soldotna is practically next door in Alaska terms, only 75 miles to the north, while Seward is another 93 miles east of there.
