I had just turned 18 when I went. I saved up a lump sum to take myself to Alaska and to be immersed in its untouched beauty. I will never forget this trip because they truly showed you as much as they could of the Kenai Fjords. Our ferry had orca looking porpoises lead us and seals follow. The staff... More

We're so happy you chose us for your adventure! We also applaud your spirit of adventure - most 18 year olds wouldn't be able to pull off an Alaska journey on their own. Come back and visit us again! More

We were scheduled to stay at the lodge for 3 nights and due to boating conditions we were unable to leave so were able to stay 4 nights. We were delighted with being detained. Our cabin was very clean and comfortable with a great view of the Pedersen Lagoon and Glacier. The food was very good and served family style,... More

Thanks for the wonderful feedback! In the rare event Mother Nature acts up and delays our boat service to the lodge, the upside is that it's an amazing place to be "stuck" for an extra night. We appreciate your positive attitude! More

We visited several lodges in different corners of Alaska and this place is the gold standard. You travel by ferry past whales to get there. Then cozy up to cracking glaciers before a short walk to the lodge itself. Each cabin looks out over the water and a massive glacier across the pond. Wildlife galore. Sea kayaking out amongst seals... More

This lodge was the highlight of our whole Alaskan trip! You couldn't ask for a more beautiful, serene, secluded setting. Everything, from the cozy cabins, the delicious food, the excellent staff to the beautiful lodge, was top notch. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. The boat ride to and from the lodge was the best wildlife-sighting tour we had throughout... More

I stayed at Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge as part of my 9-day tour with Alaska Wildland Adventures and it was the highlight of the trip. If you love nature, marine wildlife, birds, glaciers, lakes and mountains this place will not disappoint. We arrived after a four hour boat trip during which we feasted our eyes on several animal sightings. The... More

Thank you for sharing your experience at Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge. Our boats can seat up to 36 guests, and we were running at a greater occupancy on your trip (30 guests) than our normal goal of 24 guests or less, due to a weather interruption which occurred a day before your adventure. We are excited to share that we... More

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.
