Our 4-day excursion to Kenai Fjord Glacier Lodge was very well run & orchestrated. The logistics were flawless – starting from check-in at Seward, to the boat rides and round-the-clock at the lodge, we were well taken care of every step of the way. E.g., luggage dropped off at Seward was already in our room when we were there. Friendly,... More

Stayed here with 3 generations for A 3 DAY excursion. This lodge is run beautifully. From the boat captain that went out of her way to show us as much as possible (whales frolicking, a smack of jellyfish, penguins etc.) to the activities organizer and the chef. The cabins are very comfortable (so nice to take a warm shower! and... More

Highly recommend this lodge for an intimate experience in Kenai Fjords NP. The commitment to the environment and to the guests is evident in every aspect of this facility - accomodations, food, and service. We were unfortunate to lose one day of our trip because the weather was so bad that they could not pick us up in Seward. We... More

Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge My family and I decided to tie a fishing trip into King Salmon (see Rainbow Bend Lodge’s review) to a trip to Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodges just south of Seward. We rented a car and drove from Anchorage down to Seward and spent the night at a local hotel, getting on our boat the next morning.... More

We stayed at the Glacier Lodge for 2 nights and wished that we had stayed longer. The 4 hour boat trip from Seward to Kenai was delightful, with sightings of humpback whales, porpoises, puffins, sea otters, eagles, and many bird species. The 1/2 mile walk from the landing site to the lodge was a wonderful introduction to the beautiful wilderness... More

We spent three nights here as part of a 2 lodge package, coming via boat from Seward on a rather wet day and getting to the lodge in the late afternoon in time for a short canoe trip across the inlet. We stayed in Cabin #7, which included two double beds, table, chair, luggage rack, on bed lamp and a... More
