Trip Overview Detailed Itinerary Rates & Policies
Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge is the only lodge located inside of Kenai Fjords National Park. The lodge is a new addition to Alaska's ocean front nature lodges.

Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge features an elegantly rustic main lodge building for meals and relaxation, with 16 nicely appointed cabins with private bathrooms.
By day, guests can choose from a range of activities to match individual interests and energy levels, from guided hiking to sea kayaking through the lagoon and Aialik Bay. For the less adventuresome, relax by strolling along the pristine beachfront or perusing the naturalist library in the main lodge. In the evening, the main lodge serves as the dining room and lounge. Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge is an ideal venue to relax and appreciate Alaska's majestic beauty. Accessible from Seward, Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge is a perfect wilderness lodge addition to any Alaska vacation!

LODGE INFORMATION AND ITINERARY

INFORMATION

Location: Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge is located on the remote wilderness shores of Kenai Fjords National Park. Access to the lodge is by boat only.

Note: While daily access to the lodge by boat is possible almost every day of the summer, unseasonal weather occurs from time to time. In the remote chance that safe and comfortable boat travel to the lodge is not possible, alternate accommodations, activities, and meals in the town of Seward will be provided until passage to the lodge is possible. In this case, no refunds will be granted and no additional charges will be levied.

Lodge setting and accommodation: This new wilderness Eco lodge is completely surrounded by Kenai Fjords National Park. It is the only lodge located within the park. From this spectacular setting on the shore of a protected lagoon in full view of Pedersen Glacier, wildlife viewing opportunities abound, as do activity choices. The lodge is located in bear habitat and often black bears are spotted (cannot be guaranteed!).

The Lodge consists of 16 comfortably appointed log guest cabins with private baths and a central Lodge. The central Lodge serves as the dining room, lounge, and gathering place for lodge visitors. Each cabin, as well as the Lodge, enjoys a dramatic view of Pedersen Glacier and Lagoon.

Meals: Guests enjoy great Alaskan-styled appetizers, main courses and desserts served in a family-style setting. Using the finest ingredients, the chefs create beautiful meals featuring fresh baked breads, a variety of fruits and vegetables, fresh Alaska seafood and other specialty dishes. The lodge can also accommodate special dietary needs and offers vegetarian options - with advanced notice only! Beverages are not included, beer and wine are available for purchase.

Activities: Activities from the lodge include sea kayaking on protected waters (from short paddles to half-day trips), hiking (from interpretive walks to full-day treks), as well as exploring the lagoon by canoe. Each day offers a variety of activity choices to meet guest's interest and energy level.

If you stay longer: Choose from a wide variety of activities offered daily, including sea kayaking (short and long tours), hikes for various energy levels, canoeing across the lagoon, and interpretive programs. Take a sack lunch for extended activities or join an in-camp lunch in between shorter trips. Choose time to relax if you wish. Dinner and evening programs are hosted in the main lodge.
