Hotel of the week: Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, Southern Alaska
The only lodging inside Alaska’s Kenai Fjords National Park requires a four-hour catamaran ride.
Nature lovers will be at home in Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, said Tom Uhlenbrock in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The first and only lodging inside Alaska’s Kenai Fjords National Park is in “harmony with its surroundings”—ice-capped peaks, calving glaciers, and copious wildlife. To reach it requires a four-hour catamaran ride, but en route guests can see humpback whales gracefully swimming, harbor “seals sleeping on ice floes, and scads of clown-faced puffins.” The lodge’s 16 cabins sit opposite Pedersen Glacier, which you can admire from private porches.Contact: Kenaifjordsglacierlodge.com
