A Note About Occupancy

In addition to our standard double occupancy, we also offer solo supplement, triple and quad pricing options for our Alaska adventure vacations. Requested solo accommodations, when available, are subject to a solo supplement fee; however, for a solo traveler interested in sharing accommodations with another same sex, we will make every effort to pair you, and the solo supplement fee will be waived. Occasionally, pairing is not possible and a "forced solo" rate will apply during the Alaska vacation. If you are a solo traveler and you'd like to experience an Alaska vacation with Alaska Wildland Adventures, we will do all we can to have you join us!

A Note About Weather

Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge is located in pristine, remote Alaskan wilderness and is only accessible by boat. In rare circumstances, due to high winds, weather fronts or ocean conditions, we are unable to access the lodge at scheduled times. Alternative activities and accommodations have been planned for this uncommon occurrence and will be discussed with you when you check in at our Seward office if necessary.
