Seward Harbor, Alaska

Seward Harbor, located at the head of Resurrection Bay, started out as a little town known as a place for fishing and the place to get off the boat in Alaska. From here you can take the Seward Highway north to Anchorage, or if you don’t want to drive you can catch the train that will take you Anchorage, Denali or all the way up to Fairbanks. Seward Harbor is also where you can pick up a small tour boat to visit the Kenai Fjords National Park or a big cruise ship to Glacier Bay National Park and the Inside Passage. Seward’s history is among the oldest in Alaska. Gold prospectors blazed trails starting from Seward to the gold finds on the Turnagain Arm in 1891. In 1907 the army linked those trails with others all the way to Nome, completing the Iditarod Trail.

  1. Great photo! I was there as part of an Alaskan cruise.

    • Yes, this where we ended our cruise. Then we took a small boat to Kenai Fjord before we made our way up to Fairbanks.
