"Where Mountains Meet the Ocean"

Established in 1980, the Kenai Fjords National Park protects 669,984 acres (271,133 hectares) of the coast of the Kenai Peninsula in southern Alaska. The remote and largely inaccessible wilderness preserves one of Alaska's most spectacular swathes of land, where snow-capped mountains descend into lush forests teeming with wildlife. Over 40 glaciers flow from the Harding Icefield, one of the United States' largest, carving the coast into a rippling series of fjords; jagged slivers of the azure water framed by sheer cliffs and speckled with icebergs in myriad shades of green and blue. Bears, coyotes and mountain goats roam the land, while the skies are the domain of over 191 species of birds. Its waters too host a vast variety of marine life, including sea lions, otters and whales. The Exit Glacier is the only one of the park's many that is accessible by road, while more seasoned hikers can venture onto the ice-field with an experienced guide. Most visitors, however, choose to explore the coast aboard a tour boat or fishing charter.
