In Seward, there is no "off season." No matter the time of year, there are boundless outdoor activities, shopping options, excursions and events to visit us for! With abundant lodging options, shopping options and dining options, you'll be sure to be comfortable and well fed while adventuring through our seaside town.
Traveling to Alaska in the winter may seem daunting, but we're here to help! However you picture snow days best spent, snow-machining through The Kenai Fjords National Park, shopping for the perfect piece of artwork, exploring Resurrection Bay's snow-capped peaks from a boat, or curled up in a cozy, ocean-front cabin, you can experience Alaska's winter-wonderland right here in Seward.
Avid skiers can strap skins onto their skis (or splitboards!) and head into the backcountry, where snowy peaks beckon experienced skiers. If you’re less of a downhill and more of a cross country skier, don’t fret. There are plenty of groomed ski trails around Seward for nordic skiers of all skill levels. Whether you prefer skate or classic technique, check in with the Seward Nordic Ski Club for the most up-to-date nordic skiing conditions. And for the cyclists who don’t let a little snow get in their way, fat biking trails weave in and around Seward. Scope out the conditions by checking local parks’ and forests’ websites or at the Seward Visitor Center.
For those less inclined to strap a set of skis or snow shoes to your boots, there's bountiful indoor activities and accommodations for you to experience small-town Alaska in the winter. Many of our unique art galleries, less crowded this time of year, are waiting to be perused by shoppers. The Alaska SeaLife Center keeps its doors open for guests all winter long. Take in the snowy mountainsides from behind a window at one of our many dining locations or cafes.
Be sure to keep an eye on our Events Page or pop by the Visitor's Center for the latest on what's happening in Seward, whenever you choose to visit!
