Kayaking in Aialik Bay

Kayaking multiple days in Aialik Bay was the trip of a lifetime. Also did a day hike in Kenai Fjords National Park. Great short hike to a glacier.

This national park includes a glacier and multiple signs that show the approximate size of that glacier in the past. Visitors can take one of several paths to view the glacier closely or from a distance. The amount the glacier has shrunk is dramatic. The day we visited parking was a problem. We found a space only after someone left.... More

6 hours long boat tour in Kenai Fjords up to Aiaik Glacier was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska and it was an epic experience. We were based at Anchorage and our tour bus took us to Seward in the morning after around 2 hours long commute. The boat was very comfortable, with coffee, tea, lunch, snacks,... More

We had a wonderful visit to the national park. We enjoyed hiking up to the glacier. The views were gorgeous and the visitors center had interesting displays explaining the park and glaciers.

This place is absolutely gorgeous- get on a boat, hike down to the beach, visit, explore, enjoy! In 2016, we still had glaciers, if you have children get them up to Alaska while we still have them. Seriously- it's not a joke

Quite a day on the Alaskan Explorer. A little bumpy when crossing Gulf Of Alaska, but lasted only 20 minutes. Many glaciers , seals , sea lions , puffins, and dramatic shoreline to see. Spire cove especially worth the visit. Look for otters around boat docks.

The trees and bodies of water are stunning. The drive from Seward to Anchorage is a feast for the eyes! I saw a mother eagle feeding her young in this national park! Simply stunning! Mother Nature at her best!

Wish we would have known the 7 mile road to the glacier was closed at the first snowfall when we decided to visit. The stop came strongly recommended by family in the area who visited there this past summer. It was gorgeous in the snow, but we're looking forward to visiting next summer!

The all day cruise deep into Kenai Fjords was incredible with many sightings of marine life. It is well worth the time and expense. The only real way to see the Park and all it has to offer.

About the only way to see this N. P. Saw sea lions, harbor seals , sea otters, bald eagles and lots of birds. Missed out on the orcas though, maybe next time. No complaints. Would do it again.
