Alaska Starts Here

For most visitors to this part of the world, the wild part of Alaska starts at Seward, a small port city that takes advantage of the region's natural beauty.
Get outdoors at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Holgate Glacier. When in Seward, make a side trip to see Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park, approximately Kenai Fjords National Park away. There's lots more to do: push the limits with Stoney Creek Canopy Adventures, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Alaska SeaLife Center, contemplate the waterfront views at Resurrection Bay, and take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour.

To see more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Seward trip planner.

New York City to Seward is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4 hours traveling from New York City to Seward. Traveling from New York City in June, expect Seward to be little chillier, temps between 61°F and 47°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Homer.

The Last Frontier
The country's largest state, Alaska is also its least densely populated. America's final frontier, the state lies on the Arctic Circle and features some of the highest mountains in the United States. Today, several million people flock annually to the state's pristine wilderness areas, which shelter a diverse plant and animal life and offer a great selection of things to do. Tailor-made for adventurous types wishing to leave civilization behind, Alaska can also be an extremely expensive vacation destination, with few transportation options and much of its land accessible only by plane or helicopter.
