Remote Fjord Hiking on the Alpine Trail

From out in Resurrection Bay to high above it, a full day spent on the Alpine Trail provides a true Alaskan adventure. A half-hour boat ride from the Seward Harbor to Caines Head showcases the wonders of the fjord. Keep an eye out for harbor seals, sea otters, Steller’s sea lions, bald eagles, and more as we cruise down the coast.

From the rocky beach, hike up through a fairytale spruce forest of moss-decorated giants. After breaking treeline, gaze out over the barrier islands at the head of the bay and beyond, into the open Gulf of Alaska.

Learn about both the marine ecosystem and the equally fragile alpine habitat, where we’ll continue for even more far-reaching vistas if time permits. With cooperative weather, observe the glaciers pouring from the Harding Icefield, and gain a better understanding of the ice cycle and how it is changing.


  • Relax on the water taxi ride to a remote beach drop off
  • Climb gradually up from sea level to the alpine ridges overlooking Resurrection Bay
  • Spend your day in the remote backcountry where the mountains meet the fjords
