Kenai Fjords National Park & Kenai Peninsula Alaska Travel Deals
Don't miss a visit to Kenai Fjords National Park when you come to Alaska. Here are some Kenai Peninsula tours and attractions that should be on all visitors' "Must See" list. Our favorite is the National Park Tour. It's an 7.5-hour excursion into Kenai Fjords National Park, and features up-close looks at wildlife, marine mammals, sea birds and b-i-g glaciers like Aialik Glacier! Your captain may sneak right up to the face of the glacier and turn off the engine. You can hear the ice cracking and crumbling. AWESOME! After exploring Kenai Fjords National Park, be prepared to bunk down for the night at the historic Van Gilder Hotel.
The next day, stop by the Alaska SeaLife Center. Part research station, part rehabilitation for sea animals and part educational tool for visitors to Kenai Fjords National Park, it's a "must do" when you're visiting Seward. Inside the Center, you'll learn more about how the staff is monitoring the wildlife in Kenai Fjords National Park. There are several webcams located throughout the park that you can control remotely in the center! Don't miss it! Afterwards, explore Seward. Learn about the effects of the great 1964 earthquake on the Kenai Peninsula and the tsunami that followed. Learn about how the community pulled together and rebuilt the town! Glaciers, wildlife and fabulous scenery! It's all part of your visit to Kenai Fjords National Park!
