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.

Each year the town comes alive with two iconic events: the Summit Race on Mount Marathon and the state's largest Silver Salmon Derby.
