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.

New for the 2018 season, we’ve 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
