The Employee Experience
The Windsong Lodge offers an unforgettable summer experience. Living and working with people from all over the world, you’re sure to make friends for life. Located in an idyllic town between the sea and the mountains, there are numerous opportunities for adventure: hiking, kayaking, berry picking, whale watching, and so much more. Though it's the "Land of the Midnight Sun", there is an active nightlife with live music and DJ’s at multiple venues around town.
In addition to our Welcome Dinner, summer BBQ and End of Season party, employees often organize their own camping trips, bonfires by the river, family dinners and other gatherings. After working one season at the Windsong Lodge, many of our staff come back summer after summer.
Life in Seward
Seward is a picturesque, seaside town located on the Kenai Peninsula, with a population of approximately 2,500 residents in the winter & approximately 8,500 in the summer. Nestled between the shores of Resurrection Bay and surrounded by mountains, this small town is the gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park. Seward is surrounded by breathtaking scenic beauty and offers incredible opportunities for exploration, recreation, and outdoor relaxation.
Get your bucket list ready – the regions in and around Kenai Fjords National Park are waiting to be explored. Aside from our award-winning wildlife watching marine tours, you’ll want to make sure you check off kayaking (both on lakes and at sea amidst floating glaciers), fishing in our famed Alaskan rivers, biking, and hiking in pristine areas like the Harding Icefield.
The town of Seward offers all basic amenities like shopping, restaurants, grocery stores and a fitness center. To stay cozy on rainy days, there’s a library and museum to visit, an incredible SeaLife Center, and plenty of coffee shops with a view.
