We initially viewed the Kenai Fjord National Park from one of the cruise tours out of Seward. But later we decided to check out the hikes around the Exit Glacier area near Seward There are a numerous short trails there, but one fairly long and strenuous trail is the Harding Icefield trail (8.2 round-trip, 4,000 foot climb). It climbs from the valley floor up to the Harding Icefield. Much of the trail follows the Exit Glacier and it's full of beautiful views. My wife and I started too late in the day and only made it halfway. Yet it was my favorite hike of the three weeks that I spent in Alaska (including 8 days in Denali). The Exit Glacier area also has a really nice Fjords National Park visitors center.

This is a trip into true Alaska wilderness that few ever see. You are on the open ocean of the Gulkf of Alaska, so you may experience some motion sickness on the boat, but you will feel that you are at the ends of the Earth.

Easy walk for those with less mobility, but also a longer hike right up to the glacier. Visitor center was smaller than other National Parks.

Beautiful place and very friendly rangers and staff members. I went both visitor centers (the one in town and at the glacier) and would reccommend making sure to do both. There wasn't anything I disliked about this visit!

There are several tour companies. We used the Kenai Fjords tour company because their schedule worked best for us. This boat excursion to the Kenai National Park is absolutely beautiful. WE saw lots of wildlife along the way as well as a glacier. If you have never seen a glacier calve, it is a must see.
The tours start in Seward which is a cute little Alaskan fishing village. WE happened to be there during the Silver Salmon derby which was a bonus seeing the fish being weighed in. There were hundreds of fishermen participating and lots of huge silvers being caught. Only in Alaska
