Kenai Fjords can be divided into three main areas; Exit Glacier, the coastal fjords, and the Harding Icefield. Each provides visitors with very different opportunities to experience and explore this place where mountains, ice, and ocean meet.
Exit Glacier Area
Located just 12 miles outside of the community of Seward and accessible by road, the Exit Glacier Area is the easiest part of the park to visit.There are several short trails to the terminus of Exit Glacier and daily ranger programs are offered at the Exit Glacier Nature Center.
Winter season: During the winter months, the road to the Exit Glacier Area is very popular with snowmobiles and sleds dog tours, as the road is not plowed. Visitors can books rides on a snowcoach, and snowshoe or cross-country ski the trails.
The Harding Icefield
Many visitors hike to the edge of the ice field via the Harding Icefield Trail.
The Kenai Fjords National Park Information Center is the primary contact spot for visitors embarking on boat tours of the fjords, and is located in the small boat harbor of Seward, Alaska.
The Exit Glacier Nature Center is located next to the parking lot for the Exit Glacier Area.
