Seward, Alaska

 

Situated at the head of Resurrection Bay on the Kenai Peninsula, Seward is one of Alaska’s oldest and most scenic communities. Experience trophy sport fishing, glacier and wildlife cruises, sailing, hiking, kayaking,  summer dog sled rides and more.

 

Seward, pronounced "Soo-word," is surrounded by majestic snow-capped mountains which are blanketed with lush green vegetation, trees and alpine wild flowers. 
Founded in the early 20th century as settlers plotted the construction of the northbound rail line, Seward’s ice-free port and crowning Harding Icefield quickly established the city as an important shipping terminal on the Kenai Peninsula and the southern terminus of the Iditarod National Historic trail. Temperate rainforest climate and active glaciers combine to offer countless tidewaters, marine-rich waters, lush forest trails, and a variety of wildlife.
Travel to the Kenai Fjords National Park to hike or ski amongst its beautiful mountains. Kayak the tide pools along the fjords, and explore the Exit Glacier while mushing your own dog sledding team. A boat excursion or flightseeing tours offer an up close glimpse of the Harding Icefield’s glaciers, the majesty of the dramatic Kenai Fjords, and the dense greenery of the Chugach National Forest. Tour the rich waters of Resurrection Bay, join local anglers to fish for Coho salmon and halibut, or keep a look out for bright-billed puffins, friendly otters, sea lions, humpback whales, and much more. Take a coffee break in Seward’s quaint downtown, or find a mount and explore areas of the shoreline only accessible on horseback, including the old town of Seward, which was levelled by the Good Friday Earthquake. Shaped by time, earthquakes, and ocean storms, Seward’s unfolding beauty is yours to explore, any way you choose.
