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.
Kick off your visit on the 14th (Tue): paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour and then observe the fascinating underwater world at Alaska SeaLife Center.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Seward trip simple and quick.

Durham to Seward is an approximately 14-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of bus, taxi, and flight; or drive. You'll gain 4 hours traveling from Durham to Seward due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Durham in July, plan for much colder days and slightly colder nights in Seward: temperatures range from 64°F by day to 52°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Anchorage.
