We often get asked what Seward is like in the winter. The answer is AMAZING! Sure, we have shorter daylight hours checking in at about 5 hours on the shortest day, but those short days lead to incredible light for long sunrises and sunset.
There's so much to do! Cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, back-country skiing, sledding, heli-skiing, snow machining (snow mobiling to you out of staters), ice skating, kayaking, fishing, you name it. If it's a winter sport it happens in Seward!
Most people think all the wildlife disappears in the winter, but that's not true with the exception of the Humpback Whales. We often see tons of birds, sea lions, sea otters, harbor seals and eagles.
Seward is really an amazing place to live in the winter!
