Situated in Alaska, Kenai Fjords depicts a wild icy wonderland, even though it is Alaska’s smallest national park. Lush forests which surround this vast expanse of ice contribute to the fascinating experience. The best way to explore it is aboard a boat (or kayak) on Resurrection Bay. The visitors will have a chance to see smoky fjords, remote outlying islands, and blue tidewater glaciers up-close. It is truly a magical sight to see how huge glaciers grind their way slowly but surely to the sea. Nearly 40 glaciers flow from the Harding Icefield. The exit glacier nature center also offers free ranger-led hikes of different lengths, daily. The Rangers are a wealth of knowledge and eager to share so that the visitors can get to know this astonishing place. Another one of the park’s attractions is the abundance of sea life - humpback whales, orcas, harbor seals, sea otters, Steller sea lions, etc. With more time, the visitors should seek out Northwestern Lagoon. The lagoon is a quiet and serene place, which makes it ideal for camping in solitary splendor.
