The Trip of a Lifetime

No trip to Alaska is complete unless you experience Glacier Bay’s mountains, fjords, forests and tidewater glaciers.

Glacier Bay is a remote, unspoiled place where wildlife outnumbers roads a million to one. Visitors arrive by boat or plane. They stay at Glacier Bay Lodge or camp in one of the available Alaska campgrounds. Then hike through the rainforest and along the beaches, or kayak Alaska in the calm waters of Bartlett Cove and the Beardslee Islands. But, the best way to see the park is by high-speed catamaran. This full-day Alaska boat tour of the West Arm of Glacier Bay departs each morning from the dock in front of Glacier Bay Lodge.

Although the Park is open year-round, the park's Visitor Center (upstairs at Glacier Bay Lodge) and most services are open from roughly mid-May to mid-September. Winter services are limited. Entrance to the park is free. For more about the park, go to National Park Service.

Don't miss an experience you'll cherish for a lifetime - viewing the glaciers in one of America's premier natural wilderness areas, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.
