City of Seward, Alaska / Alaska starts here
Official Swim Exit & T1 Sponsor - Situated at the head of Resurrection Bay on the Kenai Peninsula, Seward is one of Alaska’s oldest and most scenic communities. Known as the ‘Gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park’ Seward is a picturesque town located 126 miles south of Anchorage. Visitors can easily reach us via the Seward Highway Scenic Byway, the Alaska Railroad, or by bus, air, or cruise ship.
Upon your arrival you will discover our bustling harbor and historic downtown district filled with quaint shops and art galleries.
Experience trophy sport fishing, glacier and wildlife cruises, sailing, hiking, kayaking, flight seeing, summer dog sled rides, and more. Seward is also a winter wonderland offering cross-country skiing, fat tire bike tours, snowshoeing, snow coach tours, and snow machine adventures.
At 3,022 feet, towering Mt. Marathon provides a breathtaking backdrop for the town. Behind Mt. Marathon and extending down the coast lies the Harding Icefield, measuring 35 by 20 miles. Flowing from the Harding Ice field are many glaciers, eight of which are tidewater glaciers, calving icebergs into the sea, reaching the coastline between Seward and Homer.
Voted an All America City in 1963, 1965 and again in 2005, we invite you to visit us any time of year and experience the real Alaska! For more information about our year round events please visit our favorites page.

The panoramic view from our campground and storefront porch is unbeatable - ask any Sewardite! We work hard to keep the business going - still family run since 1982.
