It's a good way to start the day, this hour-long Seward City Tour. It begins with a convenient pickup at the Seward cruise ship terminal. Guests spend the tour aboard a comfortable van with large windows. The trip is led by a local guide.
Discover Seward's unique origin story.
Starting in downtown, the guide tells the story of Seward. Alaskan Natives and European explorers sought the benefits of the area early on, fishing abundant salmon runs and waiting out the winter in the ice-free Resurrection Bay. Monuments commemorate the town founders who came in the early 1900s.
The story continues with the discovery of gold, and the establishment of the Iditarod trail to Nome, with the tour group visiting Mile 0 on Seward's waterfront. The group also learns about the impact of the 1964 earthquake and the fun story behind the design of Alaska's state flag. Before the tour wraps up, be sure to get the guide's suggestions on favorite restaurants or more places to see, it's one of the many perks of having an Alaskan-born trip leader.
The Seward City Tour coordinates well for cruise passengers disembarking in Seward. The 8:15 AM tour leaves enough time to make the 10:30 AM Park Connection Motorcoach to Anchorage and Denali National Park. The tour operator will also hold luggage for guests who take a morning tour but are not departing Seward until the evening train at 6:00 PM or the Park Connection at 6:30 PM.

"We had a great trip! The vouchers worked well and we had lots of free time to explore! The highlights were the domed train ride to Seward and the Tundra Tour in Denali. Our kids thought Seward was their favorite."
