We were going to the lodge for three nights and our first two nights were canceled by the lodge due to wind as they said that the boat could not go safely. Apparently it happens quite frequently that they have to cancel the lodge due to weather. We had planned our trip around this lodge experience. They did not call... More

We understand the reviewer’s disappointment in that inclement weather disrupted her original lodge stay. Contrary to the reviewer’s claims, it doesn’t happen that often, and when it does it is a reminder of the flexibility and understanding that is sometimes required of adventure travelers visiting wild and remote locations in Alaska and other unique corners of the world. While we... More

My husband and I decided to splurge for our 1 year anniversary and babymoon and stayed at Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge for 3 nights. We had a truly great time. It's pricier than most places we tend to stay at, but we felt what you get in return is completely worth it. Starting from our wildlife cruise out to the... More

We (2 adults, 2 children ages 12 and 15) spent 3 nights at Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge at the end of August.. We had chosen this to complement our 4 nights stay in Denali as we wanted to see sea life, glaciers and do kayaking. Note that on your arrival day, the boat departs from Seward around 10 AM, so...

We love hosting families and are happy you were able to enjoy varied activities during your stay. Although our boat service to the lodge typically departs the Seward harbor around 10 a.m., some trip dates have a 8 a.m. departure; the departure time of individual guest stays is dependent on many variables, and our Reservations team will alert travelers of...

We spent 2 nights the second week of August. We would loved to have been able to stay longer but there was no availability when we booked. It was absolutely unforgettable and we would love to return. The boat ride in was rain and high seas. However we learned the rule of "when the weather is crappy the animals are... More

Wow, we weren't expecting to be told we couldn't get back to Seward d/ t weather but what a beautiful place to be "stranded" at no extra cost! Staff and accommodations were outstanding. The view from the cabin was gorgeous.

We had visited this lodge the first year it opened but had rainy weather the whole time we were out there. This trip we had great weather except the high wind on the last day.

Everything about the Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge was done beautifully. From the boat trip to the lodge; the lovely cabins with views of Pederson Glacier; the fantastic food; the knowledgeable guides on interesting outings; the accommodating staff - all were terrific! I highly recommend it! We stayed 3 nights, which was long enough to participate in most activities.
