This highway is about 126 miles long and travels from Anchorage in the north to Seward in the south. Along the way you pass through towns like Girdwood, Portage, and Moose Pass. It has some of the most stunning scenery along the way. The Church National forest is on the left and Turnagain Arms on the right. There are plenty of stops along the way for photo opportunities and restrooms for those who are not faint of heart. it cuts across the Kenai Peninsula and we took it as we were going to Seward to catch our cruise ship.

We have driven this road on a number of occasions and it never ceases to amaze us. Snow capped mountains with numerous glaciers are everywhere with the fjord running near the length of the road. Tidal changes are incredible. Lots of wildlife with mountain goats and Dall Sheep in the mountain areas and whales in the fjord. Pay attention to the road as numerous accidents occur to those who don't pay attention to the traffic which can be heavy at times. Lots of stops along the way for photo ops. Hopefully you get a sunny day which makes the views more incredible. Takes about 2.5 hours to get from Anchorage to Seward depending on traffic and stops. This is one of the top five things one must do in Alaska.

Each twist and turn reveals abother stunning view but at some point (and it is different for each of us) you start to fail to be impressed. The landscape is so breathtaking from start to finish that by the end of the ride even the most sceneic vista has become old hat.

This is a very scenic drive from Anchorage to Seward...approximately 130 miles. You travel along the Turnagain Arm through the communities of Bird, Indian and Girdwood, up over Turnagain Pass, through Moose Pass and Crowne Point. It is a heavily traveled two lane with a lot of RV's and limited passing lanes. Don't be in a hurry.

Incredible journey down Seward Highway awaits you. Multiple eagle encounters await you. The tide seems to be in constant motion. And the many snow melt waterfalls will amaze you. Make sure to stop at the many road stops and park areas. Several trails of various sizes are available

You will probably start on the Seward Highway in Anchorage and continue south to Seward. Three hours is what most books will tell you it takes to drive that distance, but your trip can last all day if you make some stops. No billboards to ruin the view, just nature with a highway through it. Important sights along the way include Turnagain Pass, Girdwood (good for food and fuel), Chugatch State Park, Canyon Creek (good photo places) and then on to Seward and Resurrection Bay. Though I am not sure if it runs the entire length, but for much of the highway there is a paved trail for hikers and bikers next to the roadway. Services are limited along the route with Seward and Girdwood being the main places. Expect to see whales, birds, otters, fishermen, mountains, water in all forms, trees, moose, sheep, and more moose.

Plenty of places to pull off and view the Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet. Be sure to turn around and look up on the mountainsides. We saw numerous Dall's sheep and a few Mountain goats. Be sure to take the time to walk out on the marsh boardwalk in Anchorage to birdwatch.

We drove from Seward to Anchorage along this road and were impressed with the scenery and views of mountains, forests, lakes and wildlife that this remote highway has to offer. Make sure you stock up with things and have enough fuel on board because there are not a lot of stops along the way!

We drove to Seward on a recent trip to Alaska. Wonderful views of mountains and rivers. Drive slow so you don't miss anything. Excellent.

We did this drive in May on a beautiful,bright sunny day......clear blue skies, shining snowy icy peaks,forests,glaciers, blue water running alongside the highway, life is definitely worth living ! We drove till the wildlife conservation centre & afterwards visited Girdwood. The drive takes much longer than expected as one has to stop at almost every turn to just stare at the panoramic views & take pictures but no photograph can ever do justice to what you experience . Its easily one of the most beautiful drives in the world.
The next day we took the train to Seward as we had read that the train goes through otherwise inaccesible areas. The train follows alongside the highway & then branches off.
