We stayed at the lodge for 2 nights in June 2011. This was the finale of a 3 week trip to Canada and Alaska. We had planned this as a trip of a lifetime for over a year.
We collected our boat at Seward one comment I'd make is check where the agent is as they are difficult to find. Once we located our boat we had a 4 hour trip to kennai fjords glacier lodge - this was like a safari in its own right. Humpbacks sea otters an puffins all were seen.
On arrival we stopped by the immense Pedetsen glacier in the lagoon for an hour just fantastic.
Next we disembarked and took a 10 min walk to the lodge - luggage is delivered for you. The main lodge itself is specatularly located in black bear territory looking out onto the lagoon, glacier and sea. Spectacular vistas everywhere. Our lodge was located overlooking the lagoon and glacier as all were. Vert comfortable and eco friendly this place is all about nature.
The staff were very friendly all dining is communal - get to knowpeople and it's a buffet style. Food was excellent if a little biased to our us colleagues. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend all the daily trips went kayaking, walking and hiking. We were blessed with the weather as well.
As an amateur photographer it was fantastic (tripod / momopod recommended). If you're into the outdoors with comfort this it.
Highly recommend and will be back.
