Kenai Fjords National Park

Kenai Fjords National Park protects nearly 550,000 acres of some of the most impenetrable but wonderful natural landscapes close to Anchorage. As the name implies, this one would be worthy of a spot on the Norwegian coast. Fjords flanked by black-rock mountains and sweeping spruce-fir forests abound, while icebergs and glaciers meet along the shoreline of the Pacific. Common draws are the whales, who pass by on a migration in April and May.

Many of the national parks of Alaska are simply unattainable during the colder months of the year. That’s why summer is high time to explore the Kenai Fjords. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to tread on ice at the huge Exit Glacier!
