Biking

There is a business in Seward that rents and fixes bikes, tandems and mountain bikes. Most of the trails in Seward are great for mountain bikes. They are located in the small boat harbor at the end north end of 4th Avenue, in the "Train Wreck"

Bird Watching

Exit Glacier
Exit Glacier is the most accessible park area. A gravel road at mile 3.7 of the Seward Highway leads 9 miles to the Exit Glacier Ranger Station. The area offers exhibits on the glacier and Harding Icefield, interpretive programs, and hikes. Rangers p...
Harding Ice Field
The three hundred square mile Harding Ice Field (named after president Warren Harding) entombs the Kenai mountains, and feeds some thirty active glaciers, which are currently receding. These rivers of ice move slowly down steep slopes crushing boulders to silt, and often calve spectacularly into the sea. The Harding Ice Field is one of four remaining ice fields in the United States; they are the last vestiges of the Pleistocene era when a massive continental ice sheet covered much of North America. The ice field reaches elevations of 6,000 feet entombing valleys and mountain tops. There is a four to five miles hike starting at Exit Glacier that leads to the Harding Ice Field. While on this hike I have seen marmots, goats and bear. The park service has labeled it as a difficult hike.
Hiking
Seward has some of the most beautiful hikes in Alaska. My favorite is Lost Lake trail. Here is the best link I have found that gives lots and lots of great information on hikes.
Horseback Riding

This area of Seward, Alaska is only accessible by horse back. View bald eagles up close, see where they nest and watch them feed. It is rare that you can't ride your horse right under the trees where they majestically perch.

We will ride through part of the old town of Seward that was destroyed by the great earthquake of 1964. You will hear the stories of the people who lived through it.

Our horses will then take us to the shore of the bay where the wild flowers meet the ocean. The bird life of this area is very diverse, active and up close. This Trail Ride could very well be the wilderness highlight of your trip to Seward and Alaska.

Kayaking

Kayaking is growing in Seward and there are a large variety of options to the Kayaker. It varies from beginners taking a quick lesson and enjoying the sites with a guide, to renting a kayaking and having the kayak and yourself dropped off in a remote area. Or make reservations at a lodge in Resurrection Bay where the kayaks will await you. There are two lodges offering this service; one a fairly updated facility with many modern conveniences, the other is a newly built lodge with cabins that are much more on the rustic side. Here is a link to a kayaking company in Seward that I think you will find to be very helpful.
