Highlights and main attractions of kenai fjords National Park
A seemingly magical place, where ice caps pour into the ocean and deep fjords carve into the coast, Kenai Fjords National Park is a geological wonderland at the edge of the Kenai Peninsula in South-Central Alaska, dating all the way back to the last ice age.
Kenai Fjords National Park is approximately 70,000 acres in area and around half of the park is covered by the Harding Ice Field, one of the four major ice caps in the United States. Despite dating back so far, the fjords are a place of constant movement and change, as the Pacific and North American tectonic plates move on the coast, deepening the fjords and enhancing the beauty of this already breathtaking environment.
The Harding Ice Field contains about forty glaciers, the largest being Bear Glacier.
