Had not given Exit Glacier much of a thought as we planned our trip to Seward. We had a busy agenda including kayaking up to Aialik, exploring the North west Fjords on a cruise trip etc. Visiting Exit Glacier was merely meant to be a...More

Only when you are there , you will learn about where the glacier was in 1900s and how much it has receded over the years. You CANNOT touch the glacier and you are quite far from it, so if the idea is to touch, you...More

You need to drive 15 miles NW of Seward to get to Exit Glacier and the trails. The road dead ends there. There is no way of knowing how many people will be there at any given time..rainy days will have less.
