Seward Cruises

There are plenty of opportunities to explore the Alaskan wilderness on a cruise around the region, but there are few destinations that can match Seward when it comes to examining the state at its most beautiful.

That’s because Seward acts as the gateway to the impressive Kenai Fjords National Park, with all of the major cruise lines operating trips that visit the town as a result.

Within the National Park you can take a flight across the stunning natural scenery that sits below, or take an excursion on either land or water that provides the chance to see the native wildlife found in the area.

That ranges from bears and moose that can be seen wandering around the ice fields and glacial valleys to whales and sea lions that are found in the waters around the coast.

The famous Alaska Railroad links Seward with a number of cities further north, including both Anchorage and Fairbanks, and a journey by rail provides a fascinating way in which to see the very best of the scenery.

You’ll be able to sit back and relax as you travel along a route rated as one of the best around, with the option of Gold Star service where you can enjoy the views from a glass-domed carriage that provides unrivalled panoramic views of the landscapes around you.

You don’t have to head outside Seward to enjoy your time ashore however, with the picturesque harbour town having plenty to offer in itself.

That includes the Alaska SeaLife Centre, which is one of the top attractions on the Kenai Peninsula, as well as a range of shopping and dining options.

Depending on when your cruise docks, you might also be able to catch one of the various festivals and events that take place in the city every year.

These include the famous Mount Marathon Race and the Silver Salmon Derby.
