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.
