The boat trip to the Lodge from Seward is the first great experience of this stay in the wild. The scenery alone is worth the trip but then you get to see sea otters, seals, whales, porpoises, puffins and lots of other bird and sea life. I was lucky that on our small boat were two lady National Park wardens...

Where to start. The boat ride in, staff, food, day excursions, cabins, views....simply stupendous. My husband, son and I spent 3 nights here, which I highly recommend. We took almost all the excursions offered. Staff are friendly, knowledgable and extremely professional.

I loved this place! The boat ride to and from the lodge was a wonderful experience in itself - saw all kinds of wildlife and the scenery is stunning. The cabins are beautiful and clean and cozy with the most wonderful little back porches. The lodge is really beautiful, and the food was excellent. I really enjoyed the family style...

We stayed at this very unique lodge for three nights. One day of rain, one cloudy and one beautiful sunshiny day. It is set completely inside Kenai Fiord National Park and is reachable only by a very scenic boat ride. You are completely off the grid here and it has amazingly comfortable cabins with hot showers and 24/7 power. They...

The lodge can only be reached by boat and during our stay we travelled by canoe and on foot. We saw black bears, sea otters and river otters. The seclusion and lack of cars, TV, mobile phone signal and internet together with the beautiful location with a fabulous view of the Pedersen glacier was quite magical.

The Kenai Fjord Glacier Lodge is worth every penny. Period. It's a well run operation that gives you an active front seat to Alaska's wild and wildlife -- bears, whales, seals, otters, puffins oh my. Yes it's a splurge, but where else can you lodge in the Kenai Fjord National Park with incredible views from every vantage. Staff is incredible...

Two couples visited Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge in early July 2016 and the experience was terrific.

This is a fantastic experience. You get here via an amazing boat ride where you can see wonderful wildlife. We saw everything from orcas to puffins to sea lions.
