Perfection, magnificent, gorgeous and any other awesome adjective you can use to describe this beautiful highway! The drive from Anchorage to Seward is typically a 2.5 hour drive, but pull over and enjoy the multiple stops along the way! Given the harsh AK winters, road construction is common in AK and they were replacing some roads on our trip. You'll be driving in gravel and mud for a bit, but not too bad ...and it's worth it!

This highway goes from Anchorage to Seward. Even though it was raining on the way to Seward, the views of the Turnagain Arm and lush, green mountains was amazing. A bit of construction was going on.

The road that connects Seward with Anchorage in Alaska. An idyllic route that passes through some of the most isolated areas (Kennai Penninsula). It is better to go by buss and return by train (Alaska Express).Try to seat in the 1st floor (glass rooftop) An incredible experience, especially with midnight sun!

Interesting 127 mile drive from Anchorage to Seward. We had beautiful vistas of snow capped mountains and the golden trees. Drove along the base of the Chugach Mts and along Turnagain Arm known for its bore tides, a wave 10 ft high that rushes up the narrow waterway. I had read that you could see sheep climbing the steep slopes and at Point Lookout you could spot seals and beluga whales. We didn't see any of those it was cloudy, rainy and some spots very windy when we drove it. There are spots you can venture off to and look out spots that we stopped and took pictures.
Tips: fill up your gas tank before and don't walk along the shorelines, bore tides and quicksand make it dangerous.
We drove a 2nd time along Seward Hwy leaving Seward and heading back to Anchorage several days later.

All of my four days in Anchorage have been dark and snowy. Would have loved a sunny day to drive this highway but what can you do!! Views are still magestic. The forming sea ice was especially interesting.

The Seward Highway, which connects Anchorage to Seward is an amazing road that will leave you speechless. While some parts are just your typical highway, most of it is surrounded by incredible mountains and - in the summer - greenery. So much better than traveling by air or boat!

Take your time on this drive and you won’t regret it. Admittedly we were lucky with the weather as we also saw plenty of cloud and rain on our trip but the views of mountains, glaciers and the bays are phenomenal.

Hope you get to drive on clear sunny day like we had to enjoy the full experience. Driving alongside the railroad tracks right on the edge of the water. Plenty of places to stop along the way that are usually marked to take pictures. Little trailheads along the way also. If you are lucky may see some sheep on the mountains or whales in the water

Seward highway is the most beautiful highway and words cannot describe the magnificent beauty that you see. Mountains with ice all around you. Take your time and stop at all the stops. Have a picnic amongst this beautiful picturesque scenery. You cannot get enough.

The Seward Highway is like something out of a dream. Along the Seward Highway the mountains are so close all around you that you feel as if you could reach out the window and touch them. You could easily step out of your vehicle and take only a few steps and touch them! It is a beautiful drive and should not be rushed!
