Iditarod

3-Day Self Drive Tour Seward | Kenai Fjords National Park Travel on the states most scenic "Seward Highway", along Turnagain Arm and the Chugach Mountains. In Seward attend a full day glacier & whale watching cruise into Kenai Fjords National Park and witness the calving of a tidewater glacier.

Day 1: Anchorage - Seward

Pick up your rental car and drive south on the Seward Highway. One of Alaska's most scenic highway twists and turns along the base of the Chugach Mountains and the shore of Turnagain Arm. The landscape varies from the muddy waters of Turnagain Arm to the icy blue glaciers that hang almost to the sea. Stopover at Portage Glacier Visitor Center or in Girdwood and take the gondola to the top of Mount Alyeska. Arrive in Seward and check in your hotel.

Day 2: Seward | Kenai Fjords Whales & Glacier Cruise

Board the ship at 11:30 am for a thrilling full-day cruise through Kenai Fjords National Park and Chiswell Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Covering 110-miles, the trip is narrated by a National Park Ranger, who is highly adept at spotting wildlife, pointing out the many spectacular sights, and fielding any questions you may have. Wildlife is abundant throughout the National Park, and the tidewater glaciers are massive. You'll visit the mighty Aialik Glacier where guests often witness calving - a process by which glaciers shed giant blocks and slabs of ancient ice - from a close distance. This cruise also offers the best chance to spot whales in Alaska.

Optional: If you would like to see more of Kenai Fjords National Park then join our 9 hours Northwestern Fjords Cruise, covering 150-miles. Experience the glacially carved region known for its five tidewater glaciers, steep cliffs, and rich waters abundant with wildlife. A continental breakfast and lunch is included.

Day 3: Seward - Anchorage

Spend the morning to explore small art shops of Seward or visit the Alaska SeaLife Center. You also have the opportunity to fly by helicopter to the Seward Icefield and go dog sledding on the glacier. The Sewey Family runs the Iditarod every winter and offers the amazing sled dog tours in summer. Return to Anchorage any time during the day and return your rental car.
