The Lodge and guest cabins reside within the Native-owned, 1,700 acre Pedersen Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary.

Seward - Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge 

A stay at the Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge begins and ends with a marine wildlife and glacier cruise through Kenai Fjords National Park. Departing from Seward, small boat touring is often the preferred mode of exploration for more intimate wilderness experiences and enhanced natural history interpretation. The park is also a prime destination for whale watching. On the 4-5 h. journey to the wilderness lodge, keep your eyes out for incredible views of the Kenai Peninsula and a variety of marine wildlife. Seek out whales, Steller sea lions, Dall’s porpoises, sea otters, puffins and more. Relax and take in the beauty of this pristine area - both to and from the Glacier Lodge. Feel the salt spray mix with mountain mist as we explore the stunning seascape and listen for thundering booms as giant slabs of glacier calve into the sea, heard as far as 20 miles away. Journey to the face of massive tidewater glaciers, descending amid mountain peaks from the sprawling Harding Icefield. Meals Included: L-D

Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge | Kenai Fjords 
 

Enjoy spectacular views of Pedersen Glacier from the comforts of the main lodge deck. With only 16 log cabins surrounded by a 1,700 acre wildlife sanctuary, it's safe to assume you'll find plenty of "me-time." For over 30 years, we sought to balance authentic Alaska wilderness experiences with premium service and comfortable lodging. Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge continues this tradition, offering new access to Alaska's breathtaking seacoast; these private cabins feature on-demand heat, electricity and a full bath. A network of boardwalks connect the cabins, protecting the environment. In addition, the breathtaking location of the wilderness cabins is another highlight. Guest cabins are designed to be minimally visible from the Pedersen Lagoon while still offering spectacular views from within. Built with the surrounding wilderness in mind, guests need not leave the comforts of their private cabins; the immensity of the Alaskan landscape is just outside the cabin window.
