Escape to secluded Fox Island for an unforgettable Alaska coastal adventure at the Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge. The stunning Wilderness Lodge is an all-inclusive hideaway featuring eight waterfront cabins situated on a narrow peninsula of land just south of Kenai Fjords Tours’ Day Lodge. Four cabins are connected in one building, two facing the fresh-water lagoon and two with a view of Resurrection Bay and the vast Alaskan Ocean. The other four cabins are spacious duplexes with water views.
The main lodge’s cozy guest lounge and dining room—featuring expansive views spanning the island and the ocean bay—is the perfect spot for socializing with the other guests or curling up with a book. Comb the beach skipping stones or explore the island and its two undeveloped Alaska State Marine Parks.
The exclusive eco-resort is basecamp to explore the island’s pristine pebble beaches and surrounding clear, crystal waters of Halibut Cove. Included in every stay is a guided kayaking trip that offers guests a unique perspective on Resurrection Bay’s breathtaking scenery and rich marine life, which includes whales, sea lions, otters and seals. Round-trip transfers to and from the lodge are also a thrilling experience aboard Kenai Fjords Tours’ glacier and wildlife cruise.
Fox Island is close to Seward, but it’s a world away from the ordinary. The waters surrounding it are a rich blue green color, reflecting the weather. Marine wildlife is abundant near Fox Island. Guests cruising to or from the island commonly see Steller sea lions, otters, whales, Dall’s porpoise, and an endless variety of seabirds that include eagles, puffins, cormorants and murres.
Due to its remote location, Fox Island relies on renewable energy sources to power the facilities, making it the ideal place to unplug and reconnect with nature. Sleep soundly knowing you’ve chosen an Alaskan eco-tourism destination, certified by Adventure Green Alaska.
