Glacier Bay National Park
Glacier Bay National Park is the jewel in the crown of any Alaskan voyage. Spanning 3.3 million acres, as part of a 25-million-acre World Heritage Site, a cruise through Glacier Bay National Park reveals some of the planet’s most remarkable tidewater glaciers. From the majesty of the sheer icy cliffs to the awesome sights of eagles flying overhead, there is much to see both from ship and on shore.
For those interested in local culture, the Huna Tlingit are ready to welcome and introduce you to the history of their people, and the place they call home. If natural wonders are what you seek, be prepared for sightings of otters and whales in the water, puffins in the air, and even bears on the shore.
