Scenic Train Trip from Anchorage to Seward
If you are traveling to Seward, we recommend you consider booking a berth on one of the most scenic train trips in all of North American. You will travel along the Turnagain arm of Cook Inlet, and may see Dall Sheep above rocky cliffs. You may also see moose and bears as you pass through the Placer River Valley. You will pass the impressive ice wall that is Spencer Glacier and travel over a 1,000 foot pass through the Kenai Mountains. Before you know it you’ll be debarking the train in the beautiful harbour town of Seward, which is an added bonus! While there you might consider visiting the Alaska Sea Life Centre or take an authentic IdidaRide Sled Dog Trip.

Seward Halibut Charters
The Gulf of Alaska’s deep water currents upwelling against reefs and ledges create the perfect environment for nutrient-rich marine life to thrive, causing heavy bait fish concentrations that draw monsters from the deep. Unbelievable catches are regular occurrences for all Alaska Gulf game species. That’s why people come from all corners of the planet to try their luck at catching a “barn door” sized Halibut! No trip to Seward is complete without taking a Halibut fishing charter.
