Things to do in Seward

Just a two hour drive from Anchorage, Seward is a picturesque seaside village that presents stunning vantages of rugged mountain peaks, deep blue expanses of sea and sky and dense forests home to resident wildlife. Located at the head of the jagged cliffs of Resurrection Bay, Alaska's oldest town is easily accessed by rail, road and boat, and is a popular cruise dock that also serves as a splendid gateway to the wilderness of Kenai Fjords National Park, with Alaska's most popular wildlife and glacier cruise, Kenai Fjords Tours

There are countless things to do in Seward. Visitors can embark on wonderful hikes or experience excellent ocean fishing, kayaking or glacier-viewing. Each year the town comes alive with two iconic events: the Summit Race on Mount Marathon and the state's largest Silver Salmon Derby. Aside from exciting outdoor adventure, Seward's town center is a retreat with lively nightlife, shopping and flavorful dining options that make this town well-worth a visit on any itinerary. 

For a complete Alaska experience, consider adding Denali National Park to your vacation itinerary.  Home to North America’s tallest peak, Alaska’s iconic wildlife, and over 6 million acres of wilderness, it is truly a destination not to miss.
