Seward Scenic Highway, SR-1 to Seward

Your journey on SR 9 is awash in gorgeous mountain scenery from beginning to end. The two-lane Seward Highway passes a variety of lakes, ponds and rivers colored translucent blue by "glacial flour." Pullouts offer breathtaking views as you meander toward Seward, a small seaside town.

Seward Highway takes you on a narrow mountain passage through densely wooded slopes crowned with snow-capped granite peaks. Deep-sapphire distant mountains, aqua rivers and silvery-blue Resurrection Bay comprise the Kenai Peninsula's lovely blue landscape palette. SR 9 ends in picturesque Seward where an ice-free harbor is an ideal departure point for coastal tours.
