Glacier Bay National Park

Dominated by cascading tidewater glaciers, ice-sculpted fjords, soaring pinnacles and marine wildlife, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve is a sprawling 3.3 million acres of icy wilderness and a must-see destination for any tour through the Inside Passage of Southeast Alaska.

Discovered first by John Muir in 1879, the park has since become a coveted world-class Alaskan destination. Witness the incredible acrobatics of spectacular humpback and killer whales breaching the surface of the waters or spot some of the many other life aquatics such as harbor seals, sea otters and porpoises. The thundering display of calving icebergs, namely off Johns Hopkins and Margerie Glaciers continue to delight visitors aboard Glacier Bay Cruises. Kayaking, river rafting, fishing and whale watching remain the top activities in this blissful ice land.  

Like most of South-East Alaska, Glacier Bay National Park is best visited as part of an Alaskan Cruise.  However, for a complete Alaska experience, you may consider adding a pre- or post-trip to visit South-Central and Denali National Park to your vacation itinerary.  Home to North America’s tallest peak, Alaska’s iconic wildlife, and over 6 million acres of wilderness, it is truly a destination not to miss.
