Fat Paddler rates Kenai Fjords National Park
It's hard to find true natural wilderness in the world today but the Kenai Fjords National Park is both accessible and spectacular. After flying into Anchorage I took the train through the Harding Ice-field (the Alaska Railway is a must do!) to the quaint town of Seward. I prefer to rough it and got dropped into the park by water taxi and spent the next week camping out with a guide. By day we paddled kayaks amongst icebergs, climbed glacial moraines and spotted animal tracks in the glacial silt (bears & wolves!). The rivers were still teeming with salmon and we got to watch lots of whale activity in the coastal waters. I also stayed in a hostel called "Kayakers Cove" which is an un-powered hostel in the woods catering especially to paddlers. From there I paddled the incredible bays of the park, including a morning with beluga whales.
