Seward is in Alaska , so it must be freezing cold all year long right? No, this is not actually true. It's a rainforest so plan for a lot of precipitation. Seward has a lengthy summer with moderate, comfortable temperatures. The summer climate has frequently been compared to that of San Francisco , a United States travel destination known for its nice climate. The average temperature in Seward during the summer months is seventy degrees.
Winter, of course, can be cold, but not any colder than in other chilly locations. Some winters it barely snows and may just rain, sometimes for days. The wind-chill can be a big factor for outside comfort.
The average winter day sees about eight hours of daylight. Dec 21 is the winter solstice, the shortest day, 10am sunrise- 4pm sunset. In contrast, the average summer day is almost completely filled with sunshine and the official first day of summer is June 21. It will be dusk for an hour. Travelers requiring an approximately even amount of day and night should plan to head to Seward in spring or fall.
