The 3,022-foot Mount Marathon provides a marvelous backdrop for Seward. Each July 4, athletes run to the summit of Mount Marathon and back in one of the oldest cross country races in the USA. The record is a blistering 43 minutes!
Outdoor activities abound in Seward. Summer visitors to Seward can enjoy fishing, glacier and wildlife cruises, sailing, hiking, kayaking, and flight seeing. In the winter, cross-country skiing and snow machine adventures are popular.
Sailing away from Seward provides a wonderful view of the surrounding snow-capped Kenai Mountains. These photos were taken from the Regent Seven Seas Mariner as we sailed southeast from Seward towards the Hubbard Glacier.
