Kenai Fjords National Park lies to the southeast of Anchorage on the Kenai Peninsula. This is a land where the ice age still lingers, and creatures such as ice worms, bears, sea otters, and whales make their home here. Kenai Fjords National Park was established in 1980 by the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act. The park covers an area of approximately 1,760 square miles and is located near the town of Seward. The park is named for the numerous fjords carved by glaciers moving down the mountains from the ice field. The field is the source of at least 38 glaciers, the largest of which is Bear Glacier.
Exit Glacier is the most accessible feature of the park, and the Harding Icefield is the most dominant. The Harding Icefield is one of the largest ice fields in the United States. Visitors are encouraged to take a cruise or flight to experience the park. Ample hiking and kayaking opportunities are also available.
