A Long Weekend in Resurrection Bay

Person sitting on rock ledge looking out at field of ice.

After getting off a wildlife and glacier tour, stick around in Seward for some hiking, camping, and opportunities to get up close to nature. Hike up the Harding Icefield among fields of fireweed and mountain goats to feel the icy breeze meet you at the top. Or rent a kayak to explore the coves in Resurrection Bay. You can even kayak along the coast and camp at Caines Head State Recreation area and spend a day hiking around World War II ruins!
