Good news: We’re finally back in civilization with wifi and some time to update our blog 🙂
Holding out in Anchorage turned out to be a good idea: The weather finally improved and we headed towards Seward on the Kenai Peninsula. On the way there we passed through the Kenai Mountains and stopped at the Exit Glacier for a little hike.
In Seward we found a neat little campground located directly at the Pacific with a beautiful view of the coast and the mountains in the background.
Next morning we headed out for our boat trip to the glaciers and around the coast of the Kenai Fjords National Park enjoying the perfect weather.
We saw lots of wildlife on our way through the Alaskan Maritime National Wildlife Refuge, such as Dall’s porpoises, otters, seals, whales, puffins and other birds, …
One of the highlights of the day trip was the Holgate Glacier, which you can only reach by boat. It was quite impressive to see the glacier entering the sea and how ice masses crash into the sea.
Cruising along the beautiful coast we had lunch on the boat and got back to Seward in the afternoon.
Our final destination that day was Whittier at the Prince William Sound, which was about a two hour drive.
On the way Andi had a swim in one of the ice-cold glacier lakes. Although the sun was shining it was definitely toooo cold for Tini!
