At the edge of the Kenai Peninsula lies a land where the ice age lingers. Nearly 40 glaciers flow from the Harding Icefield, Kenai Fjords' crowning feature. Wildlife thrives in icy waters and lush forests around this vast expanse of ice. Sugpiaq people relied on these resources to nurture a life entwined with the sea. Today, shrinking glaciers bear witness to the effects of our changing climate.
Where Mountains, Ice, and Ocean Meet
Explore Winter at Exit Glacier
Once the road to Exit Glacier is snow-covered and closed to cars, it is accessible by cross-country skis, fat bikes, snowmobiles, and more.
The park is open year-round; however, changing conditions can dictate what areas are accessible. Check the conditions before setting out.
