Welcome to Kenai Fjords National Park, AK

There are few places in America that offer such a diverse array of natural beauty as South Central Alaska. From whales to glaciers, there is something to satiate every nature lover's appetite. Unlike those of most of Alaska, the wonders of South Central are traversable or viewable by car. There are roads to a majority of the beloved spots in the region. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC. All rights reserved. Explore

The Most Intimate Way to See the Bay
