Kenai Fjords National Park (overview) Map

Kenai Fjords National Park Map

The Kenai Fjords National Park comprises a major portion of the Harding Icefield and Kenai Mountains.

The Harding Icefield contributes more than 40 glaciers that spill into the fjords and valleys of the Kenai Peninsula. The KFNP shoreline boundary begins in lower Resurrection Bay and after many twists and turns ends in Nuka Bay. The 607,805 acre national park includes the glacial carved fjords of Aialik Bay (Photos) , Harris Bay, Northwestern Fjord (Photos), Two Arm Bay, McCarty Fjord, and Nuka Island (Photos) Public access to the Kenai Fjords National Park outer coast is limited to boat, aircraft, or kayak.

Kenai Fjords National Park Visitor Center:

The Kenai Fjords National Park Visitor Center sits adjacent to the harbormaster building at the Seward boat harbor. The visitor center is a good orientation site with wildlife exhibits, resource books, maps, and other publications.

Access to the Kenai Fjords National Park:

The most spectacular portions of the Kenai Fjords National Park lies along its rugged outer seacoast, which is only accessable by boat, kayak or airplane.

For adventurous, independent travelers or groups, I recommend the use of Water taxis, Charter boats, and Kayak outfitting services for transportation. Arrangments for guided sea kayaking tours of Resurrection Bay and the Kenai Fjords National Park are easily made in Seward.

Glacier and Wildlife Vessel Tours of Resurrection Bay, the Chiswell Islands and the Kenai Fjords National Park depart daily from April thru September from the Seward boat harbor.

Public Use Cabins:

Presently, The Kenai Fjords National Park maintains three summer public use cabins in the KFNP. They are located in Upper Aialik Bay and Holgate Arm In addition, there is one winter public use cabin available in the Resurrection Valley at Exit Glacier. Public use cabin stays are limited to three days. A fee is required for cabin use, and cabin reservations should be made in advance.
