Featuring over 1.3 million hectares of rugged mountains, dynamic glaciers, wild coastlines and deep fjords, Glacier Bay National Park is a stunning place to experience the beauty of Alaska.

From summit to sea, Glacier Bay is home to an incredible variety of activities sure to awe and inspire you. To get there, you’ll need to take a boat or a sea plane from Alaska’s capital city, Juneau, which sits to the east of the park. Start your adventure in this UNESCO World Heritage Site with a visit to Bartlett Cove, where you can rent a sea kayak and paddle out to visit the beautiful McBride Glacier. You can also hop aboard a boat tour to Marble Island, where you can watch comical puffins and lazy sea lions lounging on the shores. Alternatively, take to the skies in an aerial tour of the park’s massive glaciers.
