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.
Start off your visit on the 14th (Sat): paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour. Keep things going the next day: meet the residents at Alaska SeaLife Center, take in the dramatic natural features at Exit Glacier, then contemplate the waterfront views at Resurrection Bay, and finally take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour.
