Welcome to Kenai Fjords National Park
With such a landscape – and an abundance of marine wildlife – the park is a major tourist attraction. Unfortunately, it’s also an expensive one. That is why road-accessible Exit Glacier is its highlight attraction. Hardier souls can ascend to the Harding Ice Field from the same trailhead, but only experienced mountaineers equipped with skis, ice axes and crampons can investigate the 900 sq miles of ice.
The majority of visitors either take a quick trip to Exit Glacier’s face or splurge on a tour-boat cruise along the coast. For those who want to spend more time in the park, the coastal fjords are a blue-water kayaker’s dream.
The park is free.
