Kenai Fjords National Park

Encompassing 1,047 square miles (2,711 square kilometers), the Kenai Fjords National Park is named after the many glacial-carved fjords, or glacial valleys that sit below sea level. These fjords run down the mountains and into the iconic Harding Icefield, one of the largest ice fields in the United States with 40 glaciers flowing into it.

There are many ways to experience the park’s beauty, like taking an aerial tour, kayaking on the fjords, hiking to the top of the Harding Icefield Trail or exploring the trails around Exit Glacier. You can also fish for salmon and Dolly Varden within the park’s backcountry. For those interested in wildlife spotting, the parks icy waters and dense woodland are home to a number of creatures like mountain goats, black bears, bald eagles, Steller sea lions, puffins, Dall's porpoises, and humpback and orca whales.

As you immerse yourself in the park’s natural beauty, take some time to reflect on how the native Alutiiq once used the park’s resources to survive. To continue your exploration of Alaska’s outdoor beauty you can visit one of the natural attractions that border Kenai Fjords National Park, including Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and Kachemak Bay State Park.
