Onward to Seward, AK for an outdoor adventure trip unlike any other. Seward sits on Resurrection Bay in the Kenai Peninsula. Being this far on Alaska’s southern coast leaves Seward residents and guests a whopping 120 miles from Anchorage and 1,300 miles from Cape Flattery, WA the closest point in the contiguous United States. Due to the Alaska remoteness, you will need to travel to visit other tourist destinations. Soldotna lies less than 100 miles away to the northwest, while Kenai is around 104 miles. When you book a motorhome rental in Seward, be sure you’re ready to be a little bit disconnected from the rest of the world.

Seward may seem like a small, unknown tip of Alaska, but the area actually played an incredibly important role during World War II. The port found within Seward and the fort and airfield built during this time helped the military protect this entrance point to America. None of these sites remain active now, but that doesn’t mean Seward isn’t a booming place to visit.

The Great Outdoors

When you plan a camper rental trip to Seward, you should expect to find yourself in the wilderness a fair amount. You’ll have tons of park options and touring companies are aplenty should you want to play it safe. So, let’s take a look at what’s available for you and your Seward travel trailer rental.

If you like glaciers or snow and ice in general, you’re in luck. There are a series of trail networks that’ll take you to various glaciers in the area. Or, hop on a boating tour to get real up close to them and admire their size and raw beauty.

Smaller parks are available throughout that offer miles upon miles of hiking trails. You’ll stumble across hidden waterfalls, watchful wildlife, and even small bodies of water. Be sure to have all necessary equipment handy and trail maps. Alaska sure is an unforgiving place once you leave the main trail.

Kenai Fjords National Park sits right in Seward and is an interesting location in that the mountains, ice, and the ocean all meet. You’ll notice 40 glaciers flowing in from the Harding Icefield, the park's most famed attraction. Despite the seemingly harsh conditions, wildlife actually thrives here and you’ll more than likely spot some cold-weather critters. Take a boating tour or kayak on the water. Hike through the Harding Icefield. Engage in conservations with the rangers at work. But, most importantly, just embrace the magnificence that is Alaska.

RV Parks

In typical Alaska fashion, you’ll have plenty of overnight campsites available for your Seward motorhome rental. In fact, Seward’s official city website has a specific page dedicated to listing all available city maintained camping opportunities and what they offer. So, if you’re in the early stages of planning, this is a great resource to get an overview of everything available to you before you call to reserve. The majority of the campsites do not have hookups but don’t let that deter you from living among the Alaska wilderness. It’ll be an experience to remember.

There are, of course, privately own RV parks available as well should you want to stay closer to civilization. Unlike the city-owned campsites, the majority in this group offer full hookups for your RV as well as other amenities like washroom and laundry facilities, game rooms, and pools to make your time in Seward more comfortable.

Exploring the City

Should you be interested in sea lions and other seaworthy creatures, point your Seward camper rental towards, there’s the Alaska SeaLife Center. Get up close and personal with some of the native habitats of the area. The center is research-focused, so it’s bound to be very engaging as you learn about the studies going on with the natural world of Alaska.

With fresh knowledge of the surrounding landscape, take your curiosities over to the museums focused on the history and development of modern Alaska. Whether you’re more interested in the Native people that sit at the backbone of Resurrection Bay or a generalized overview of the timeline, Seward will keep you well informed.

Now that you’ve fulfilled the cute animals and local lore part of the trip, head into downtown Seward. The city is full with unique to the area shops and eateries. Expect fresh seafood to be on the menu and handmade items crafted from locally sourced materials. Check out the fish market if you’re in the mood to prepare your own dinner. There’s nothing fishy about Seward as a travel destination, so book an RV in Seward, AK and set out on an adventure to remember.
