Accessible only by boat, Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge is the only accommodation on remote Fox Island, situated on a narrow peninsula of land south of Seward, in Resurrection Bay. All rooms afford views of the ocean or our fresh-water lagoon.
The Wilderness Lodge’s cozy guest lounge and dining room — featuring expansive views of the spanning island and the ocean bay — is the perfect spot to socialize with the other guests, curl up with a book by the fire or spot marine wildlife with our guest-use only binoculars.
Wander the shores looking for skipping stones, or if you're feeling active, take a challenging (steep) hike through luscious forest to a beautiful viewpoint on the other side of the island.
Settle into the soothing and smoky scent of wilderness bliss in our wood-fired saunas — a treasured tradition of relaxation on the island. Just let the team know and they will prepare at your request.
Guided Kayaking Excursion
We've partnered with our good friends at Sunny Cove Kayaking to bring you an included kayaking adventure. Make the most of your time and see the island from a rare point of view. Choose from full day (6.5 hours includes lunch), afternoon (3 hours) or evening (2 hours) trip. Speak to our experts for more information.
Please note: Some kayak tours begin later and end sooner in the season than dates bookable at Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge. Please confirm with a tour consultant that the kayak trip you want to take is running.
Indulge in the comforts of backcountry cooking, with seasonal, regional ingredients spotlighted in every dish. On return from your adventures, you’ll be greeted by the aromas of baked goods, freshly brewed coffee and other delectable snacks at the lodge.
Order your drink of choice and toast to a day of memories made and more to come. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are included with your stay.
Wine, beer and spirits at additional cost.
Explore Kenai Fjords
On departure day, choose between two exciting wildlife and glacier cruises by Kenai Fjords Tours, Seward's original tour operator since 1978.
The Northwestern Fjord Tour visits three tidewater glaciers and is home to a plethora of wildlife, before returning to Seward. Departs Fox Island at 9:30 a.m. and ends in Seward at 4:30 p.m.
Should you prefer a shorter tour or if it is not running, the Resurrection Bay Tour is a great alternative that departs at 2 p.m. returning to Seward at 5 p.m.
We hope you will embrace the untouched beauty and appreciate the quiet comfort of our seaside wilderness location. This beautiful and remote island affords minimal distractions so you can, quite literally unplug and reconnect with nature.
