Seward to Whittier is 95 miles. You could rent a car from Hertz or take PJS Taxi. We have lots of hotels to choose from in Seward if you have specifc things in mind such as price or location. There is wildlife/glacier cruises out of Seward with lots of other things to do here too. tripadvisor.com/GoListDetail-i10631-Things_t…

Let me know if you want more ideas or help.
