Alaska’s National Treasure
Only 200 years ago, the magnificent fjords of what is now Glacier Bay National Park, were buried under ice thousands of feet thick. Today visitors can explore this 3 million acre park with its tidewater glaciers, wildlife, and spectacular mountain peaks on day cruise vessels, kayaks, or on foot.
The town of Gustavus is situated at the entrance to Glacier Bay National Park, accessible by air or water. Charming country inns and scenic wilderness lodges provide a great base to experience great kayaking, whalewatching, fishing and hiking in addition to glacier cruises.
