“where the ice age still lingers”
Kenai Fjords National Park is a glacial landscape of ice, tidewater glaciers, deeply chiseled fjords, and jagged peninsulas formed by the forces of the Harding Grewingk-Yalik icefields as they plunge into the sea.
The best way to see the Fjords is from a boat. There are several companies that run from Seward that offer a variety of tour lengths and types. We opted for a day trip run by Kenai Fjords Tours. The tour guide was a National Parks Ranger and was INCREDIBLY knowledgeable about the park, history, animals, and landscape. He chased whales, porpoises, and otters all over the park. We saw Bald Eagles, falcons, hawks, puffins....it was an incredible day. Not to mention, we got to see a glacier calving into the bay! The cruise was comfortable, reasonably priced, and truly beautiful. This is a wonderful park! Would definitely come back!
Amazing. The town of Seward is a funky coastal with real small-town appeal. We took a tour through Kenai Fjords Tours and they were awesome. The serve lunch - which was great - and the boat was warm and comfortable inside. Outside there was plenty of room for everyone to see. We saw seals, sea lions, otters, eagles, porpoises, whales...and of course the beautiful glacier spilling into the bay. What a fun day!
