Planning Your Trip The trip is half the ad venture When Alaska Starts Here. Alaska Railroad

®

Alaska is a vast state, and planning your trip can be overwhelming. We’re here to help, and invite you to dive right in!

1 Determine how you would like to experience Seward: If you prefer flexibility, you might want to consider flying into Anchorage and renting a car or RV for your trip. Would you enjoy an all-inclusive overvie w of the state? Research you r travel options, and be sure to add on a pre- or post-cr uise tour in Seward. Want to rela x after your flight north? Rid e the rails to Seward on the Ala ska Railroad and rent a car in Seward or use our local tax is to get around. Bus service is also available between Anc horage and Seward. 2 Finalize how much time you have for your visit: Don’t forg e to factor in your travel tim e to and from home, as tha t will take away from your actual days in Seward. 3 Narrow down the areas you ’d like to see: For the best experience, select a genera l region, such as the Kenai Peninsula, and concentrate your time there. Visitors frequently misjudge distanc es in Alaska, and eight to ten hours of traveling every cou ple days can become very tiring. Many of Alaska’s highways are only two lanes, with limi ted passing capability. Speed limi ts are also lower than you are probably used to. Don’t forg et that many communities can only be reached by air or ferr y, and those schedules can be difficult to plan into a vacatio n. You can start your Alaska vacation in Seward and enjo y all Alaska has to offer righ t here on the Peninsula!

Access points at Mile 2.1 of Nash Road, at the end of Bear Lake Road (via 0.6 mile access trail), or Mile 12 Seward Hwy.

4 Lowell Point

Varies

Many a kayak and paddleboard adventure begin at Lowell Point. Both guided and unguided parties launch here —for leisurely day paddles along the shore or to longer paddles or overnight adventures throughout the bay. Watch for whales, porpoise, sea otters, seals, sea lions and even bears walking the shore. Caution: winds kick up every afternoon. Lessons, guide services, rentals and water taxis to farther out destinations are available in here or in town. The beach at Lowell Point is also a popular shore fishing location…and a fun place to simply walk the beach (be mindful of the tides if you walk south).

Drive south on Lowell Point Road, turn left on Border Ave.; at the T with Beach Drive, consider stopping for weather updates and other important information… then head south to the launch at the end Beach Drive.

Easy to Moderate Hike: 1.5 mile (oneway)

Weave in and out of the rainforest, explore the beach and, when the salmon are in, see spawning action up close and personal. CAUTION: Trail beyond Tonisina Point is tidally dependent; you don’t want to be trapped on the other side unless you plan to spend the night.
