Seward, AK - Exit Glacier Road
Driving to Seward, AK from the Exit Glacier area.
Seward, Alaska - An Informative Scenic Overview | Travel Channel
Join us for an informative scenic overview of Seward, Alaska. The city inhabits just over 2,500 people and is a main port for many Alaskan cruises.
The Alaska state flag was created in Seward by a young boy in a school competition.
Mount Marathon in Seward holds a 3.1 mile race each 4th of July. Many contestants end up bloody and/or bruised due to sliding down the 3k hill at the end.
This footage was captured while traveling on a Holland American cruise line trip through Alaska.

Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise - Seward, Alaska
The cruise will travel through the protected waters of Resurrection Bay and continue around Cape Aialik into Aialik Bay to view Holgate Glacier.
A National Park Ranger will be onboard to provide a detailed narrative on the history, ecology, geology, and wildlife in the area. They are always more than happy to answer your questions during the cruise.
While in the protected waters of Aialik Bay we will begin serving our optional all-you-can-eat Alaska salmon and prime rib meal that is freshly prepared onboard. This meal is served buffet style and is consistently rated as the best of any day-cruise company in Southcentral Alaska. While you enjoy our cruising restaurant service you will be able to sit at your reserved seat inside the heated cabin and not miss out on any of the beautiful scenery.
At the end of Aialik Bay is the mighty Holgate Glacier, an actively calving tidewater glacier. We will spend time in front of the glacier to watch for calving, where giant chunks of glacial ice break off and crash into the water.
Depending on the time of year, we will explore the Chiswell Islands (part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge) or Cape Resurrection, home to thousands of nesting seabirds including puffins, kittiwakes, and cormorants. The captain will stop the boat close to the seabird nesting areas, providing great photo opportunities. We will also visit Steller sea lion colonies, where Steller sea lions gather on the rugged, rocky coastline. Sea otters, bald eagles, and mountain goats are also commonly seen along the route.
This exciting tour departs from Seward, Alaska.

Seward's location is nothing short of epic. It sits at the northernmost edge of Resurrection Bay, a deeply dug fjord carved millennia ago by retreating glaciers. To the east are snowcapped peaks decked out in their lower altitudes by forests of Sitka spruce. To the west is 700 square miles of ice known as the Harding Icefield. It is encompassed by the larger Kenai Fjords National Park. No matter where you look, there's something beautiful to see.
It was the area's natural gateway to northern Alaska lands that led to its 1903 selection for the southern terminus of what would become the Alaska Railroad. The settlement was named Seward in honor of the politician who lobbied for and negotiated the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867. When the railroad was successfully constructed to Anchorage, Seward's future was secure. Today it serves as a turnaround port for most major glacier route Alaska cruises from Seward to Vancouver.
Seward offers a wide selection of activities for every age, energy level, and interest. By far the most popular are Kenai Fjords day cruises into Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park. Our favorite cruises go by spacious catamaran into Aialik Bay for astounding views of tidewater glaciers and ample chances to see the area's diverse marine wildlife. Seward's beautiful bay waters can also be explored by a guided kayak excursion. Seward is a great place for fishing. Monster halibut are caught each year in nearby waters, and the town is host to the popular Seward Silver Salmon Derby held annually in mid-August. Back on land, there's the Alaska SeaLife Center, hiking at Exit Glacier, ziplining, sled dog kennel tours-the list goes on.
Keep reading for expert Seward and Kenai Fjords National Park advice on where to stay, things to do, and how to get around.
For most visitors interested in seeing Seward, we recommend spending at least one or two nights in town. There are as many lodging options as there are activities. The Harbor 360 offers freshly updated rooms, complimentary continental breakfast, and a convenient harbor front location. Farther outside of town, the Seward Windsong Lodge has a cozy rustic feel and views of the Resurrection Valley. The lodge provides transportation into town via a free scheduled shuttle.
Although Seward does have a small airport, most visitors reach Seward by Alaska Railroad, Park Connection Motorcoach, rental car, or aboard a cruise from Vancouver. The Park Connection offers two trips daily between Anchorage and Seward and the only same day connecting service to Talkeetna and Denali National Park. The Alaska Railroad offers daily summer service between Anchorage and Seward, with the train from Anchorage arriving in the late morning and return train departing in the early evening. Many consider this route to be the most scenic train trip in the state. The highway to Seward is a National Scenic Byway in its own right, so we recommend traveling one direction by rail and the other by bus.
Vlog #25: Seward, Alaska & Kenai Fjords National Park
Spent a couple of nights in Seward to earn a Junior Ranger badge from Kenai Fjords National Park and take a hike to Exit Glacier. It is here where we met up with Chris of Chris & G Travels but unfortunately I don't have any videos of it. For those of you that found us through his interview of us, this is where that was shot.

알래스카를 남북으로 종단하는 이 열차는 현지인들의 교통수단이자 관광열차이기도 하다. 특히 앵커리지에서 동쪽으로 향하는 이 코스는 멀리 추카치 산맥과 함께 광활한 여름 알래스카의 절경을 볼 수 있다. 알래스카 레일로드를 20여 분 타고난 뒤 나는 스펜서 빙하에 도착했다. 빙하의 나라 알래스카에서 내가 만난 첫 빙하다. 드디어 보트를 타고 빙하탐사에 나섰다. 빙하는 눈이 오랜 시간 다져져 육지의 일부를 덮고 있는 것을 말한다. 계속해서 내린 눈이 엄청난 두께로 쌓이면 아래쪽부터 얼음이 되는데 이 거대한 얼음덩어리, 즉 빙하는 중력에 의해 낮은 곳으로 조금씩 이동한다. 빙하의 끝부분에서 떨어져 나온 크고 작은 유빙들이 호수 곳곳에서 보인다. “알래스카에는 네 가지 종류의 빙하가 있습니다. 산 빙하, 호수 빙하, 육지 빙하, 바다 빙하. 이곳은 호수 빙하의 일종입니다. 이 빙하 조각은 떠 있는 부분들이 크게 보이지만 물 위에 보이는 부분은 1/10, 물에 잠겨있는 부분은 9/10입니다. 어마어마한 덩어리죠.” 빙하가 녹은 이 호수의 수온은 0도에 가까워 사람이 빠지면 심장마비의 위험이 있다고 한다.

The train that ended the north-south transportation of Alaskan natives and is also a tourist train. The course toward the east, especially in Anchorage can see breathtaking views of the vast summer in Alaska with mountains far Echuca value. Alaska Railroad born 20 minutes after I arrived at Spencer Glacier. I first met binghada country's glaciers in Alaska. Finally, the boat went to the glacier exploration. Glaciers means covering a portion of the land of snow dajyeojyeo long time. Snow fell continuously from the bottom of a massive buildup of ice thickness are huge chunks of ice, that ice is slowly moving into place by gravity and low. Big and small ice floes that come off at the end of the glacial lake visible from everywhere. There are four types of glaciers in Alaska. Mountain glaciers, glacial lakes, glaciers on land, sea ice. This is a kind of glacial lakes. This piece is part of the glacier but portions are largely seen floating on the water is 1/10, 9/10 part is immersed in water. Colossal blur.

Alaska from Above: Floatplane over Anchorage and Chugach State Park
(open for more info)
We had the chance to take a short ride on a floatplane--another tick on the bucket list--and gained a little perspective (albeit as tourists) on Alaskan bush pilots, who rely upon their planes for survival, whether they're outfitted with wheels, snow skis, or floats. We saw Anchorage from above, gorged ourselves on the views of remote areas of the Chugach mountains, spotting moose and Dall sheep, and appreciated a bird's eye view of low tide and Fire Island and Cook Inlet.
Rust’s homepage, showing a great variety of flight tour options:
The particular flight shown in this video:
Maps and resources for Chugach State Park:
“Aviation touches all aspects of life in Alaska, and is a basic mode of transportation because approximately 90% of Alaska is not served by roads. Alaska has six times as many pilots per capita and 16 times as many aircraft per capita when compared to the rest of the United States. In the state of Alaska, there are fewer than 12,000 miles of paved roads. Aviation is not only the state pastime; it is the state's major form of transportation.”

Anchorage Cruise Ship Shuttle Ride from Cruise Port to Downtown (4K)
Holland America (and Princess Cruises) offers a free shuttle bus service from the Port of Anchorage into the downtown area. It runs about every 30 minutes and drops guests off near G and 6th Ave. See what the ride was like. Our particular ride took over 30 minutes due to waiting for at a train crossing for an Alaskan rail to pass through. Otherwise the ride should not take more than 15 minutes. To return, we simply had to get back to the drop-off point. The last shuttle left at around 8 PM to return guests back to the pier.
This was from our 14 day Alaska cruise aboard the Holland America Amsterdam in June of 2017. Usually cruise ships do not like to dock in Anchorage due to the extreme tide differences, and hence the popularity of Seward & Whittier as docking areas for visiting Anchorage. So it was nice to have a cruise in our case that docked directly in the city of Anchorage.

Denali Highway & Denali National Park| Go North Ep.10
Denali Highway & Denali National Park| Go North Ep.10
Our first big adventure in Alaska took us down the old Denali Highway to Denali National Park. This road runs through some amazing Alaska wilderness and was the original road used to access Denali National Park. The Denali Highway offers stunning views and access to all kinds of outdoor Alaska recreation. At the end of the highway a short drive took us to the entrance of Denali National Park where we checked in to Teklanika campground for a wonderful 5 days of exploring this pristine wilderness. Denali blew us away by its remote beauty. You cannot drive in this park unless you are going to your campground, and this keeps traffic minimal. Hiking is encouraged, however there are very few trails so it is all backcountry. This was intimidating at first but after a few days we found ourselves falling in love with this type of hiking, finding a freeing sensation in going wherever you want. One day we did get to see Denali the mountain (formerly Mount McKinley) which is the tallest peak in North America. This mountain dwarfed all other mountains around it that were of normal size. We fell in love with this remote wild landscape and truly believe that the borders that protect these lands are important to keep this place wild for generations to come to enjoy.
