Sightseeing & Relaxing

Experience Kenai Fjords National Park At Your Own Pace

Relax in one of the rocking chairs on our spacious deck overlooking the dramatic cascade of Pedersen Glacier. Keep a look out for harbor seals and sea and river otters frolicking in the lagoon, or a black bear out for an evening stroll along the shoreline. Or, cozy up inside the lodge next to the wood stove and peruse a selection from our natural history library - the expansive windows in the main lodge offer stunning views of the glacier and lagoon.

In 2018, we upgraded amenities at Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge to include an expertly-crafted sauna. Built in the cooperage tradition - which is generally associated with whisky barrels and water tanks - the cedar sauna is equipped with a Finnish stove, beautiful stone hearth and roomy, comfortable interior seating.

It’s nestled in a quiet, forested area of the property and is a perfect way to unwind at the end of an active day.

Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge also features sightseeing opportunities at a relaxed pace:

  • Seek out glaciers, whales, sea otters and more on the included Kenai Fjords Marine Wildlife and Glacier Cruise
  • Meander along several walking trails and explore the area at a leisurely pace
  • Join one of our interpretive guides for a casual stroll
  • Search for local wildlife including black bears, bald eagles and more
