True to its name, this place represents 3.3 million miles of glaciers, among other natural phenomenon. Visitors to this US park can check out rain forests, fjords, and long stretches of wildlife populated coastline. As to be expected, outdoor activities abound here. You can fish, raft, hike, and mountaineer.
Given that roads and paved trails are limited, exploring the park really is a wilderness adventure. Some of the more remote and isolated areas can prove somewhat intimidating, but for the brave of heart this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. There are also several guided tour options for those novice adventurers.
  • GLACIER RIVERS

    Running from Canada into the park’s Dry Bay, the Tatshenshini and Alsek rivers offer incredible rafting experiences. You can try it on your own or join a guided trip—either way you are sure to brave some rapids and enjoy amazing scenery.

  • LODGING

    There are a couple of options right in the park. Glacier Bay Lodge is in Bartlett Cove and offers direct access to the water. While there are also campgrounds and RV facilities available for those who prefer a more rustic experience.

  • WILDLIFE

    There is certainly plenty to see in this rugged nature lover’s paradise. Bears roam the area as do moose and mountain goats. By sea, visitors have had the pleasure of watching sea lions, otters, and seals.

THE WEATHER
  • The park is open year-round, but winter months aren't ideal for many reasons. The weather is unpredictable and the facilities are closed down.

  • Spring remains very slow. The daily highs are up to the mid-60s, but the snow removal isn't complete until June.

  • Like much of Alaska, July and August are the best months to visit. Most people arrive by cruise, and the ships only run in the summer.

  • Businesses close down after the summer. However, early fall can be a good time to visit to see the trees changing colors.
