Situated at the head of Resurrection Bay on the Kenai Peninsula, Seward is one of Alaska’s oldest and most scenic communities. A spectacular 2.5 hour drive south from Anchorage brings you to this seaside village, which offers a bustling harbor, quaint shops and galleries, and many different ways to tour Kenai Fjords National Park.
Created in 1980, Kenai Fjords spans over 587,000 acres and is crowned by the massive Harding Ice Field, from which countless tidewater glaciers pour down into coastal fjords. The impressive glacial landscape and abundant marine wildlife make the park a top Alaska tourist adventure. Many visitors take a day cruise along the coast south of Seward to watch glaciers calve into the sea and spot seals, sea lions and whales. Another popular attraction in Kenai Fjords National Park is Exit Glacier, which lies just north of town. This road-accessible glacier offers an impressive up-close view of the glacier along with information and hiking trails.
