Explore Kenai Fjords National Park
Kenai Fjords National Park is home to rainforests, wildlife, tidewater glaciers, ice fields and archeological gems. Open year-round and easily accessible from Seward, Exit Glacier descends from Harding Ice Field and is carving its way through the Kenai Mountain Range. A quick hike takes visitors from the Nature Center parking lot to the Exit Glacier Overlook for up-close views of the glacier flowing into the Outwash Plain. Follow the guided trails up to venture deeper into the park to the 700-square-mile Harding Ice Field, the largest in the U.S. Hiking excursions and marine wildlife and glacier cruises explore the park’s unique ecosystems. Chartered cruises are the easiest way to venture along jagged coastlines for up-close views of mountains and fjords plunging into glacial lakes. On-site guides assist with activities like kayaking, camping, fishing, beachcombing, bicycling, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, boat tours, ranger programs, flightseeing and mountaineering. After a day of exploring, return to Seward and unwind at a picturesque harborside hotel or in one of the many nearby cabins.
