KENAI FJORDS NATIONAL PARK
Where Mountains, Ice, and Ocean Meet
At the edge of the Kenai Peninsula lies a land where the ice age lingers. Nearly 40 glaciers flow from the Harding Icefield, Kenai Fjords’ crowning feature. Wildlife thrives in icy waters and lush forests around this vast expanse of ice. Native Alutiiq relied on these resources to nurture a life entwined with the sea.
Just 125 miles from Anchorage and easily accessible by highway and rail, Seward is one of Alaska’s oldest and most charming towns, surrounded by breathtaking scenic beauty. Seward is considered the “Gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park.” Seward offers incredible opportunities for outdoor exploration, recreation and good-old relaxation. Of course there are our glacier and wildlife adventures —but there’s also backpacking, fishing, hiking, packrafting, kayaking, and photography… we can do it all!
