Exit Glacier
A one-mile wheelchair-accessible loop (partially paved, partially compressed gravel) leads to a panoramic view of Exit Glacier spilling down from the Harding Icefield. This loop can be traveled clockwise or counter-clockwise, with a slight descent of either paved or compressed gravel on the return.

Visitor Centers
The Kenai Fjords National Park Visitor Center in Seward, the Exit Glacier Nature Center, and their restroom facilities are wheelchair-accessible.

Boat Tours
All tours on the waters around Kenai Fjords are operated by commercial tour boat operators, and not the National Park Service. Most tour boats are wheelchair-accessible, but not all, and exceptions are listed on the companies' websites. Any concerns should be mentioned at the time of the booking of the tour.

Public Use Cabins
Both of the coastal public use cabins (Alialik and Holgate) and the winter public use cabin (Willow) have wheelchair-accessible decks and doors. Assistance may be required to access the coastal cabins from the beach.

The Exit Glacier campground has two accessible sites available on a first-come, first-served basis. Paths to the two sites, vault toilets, and cooking area are crushed rock or asphalt.
