National Park
The more than 356,000 hectares (879,695 acres) of glaciers in its park, and the surrounding network of fjords, inlets, and islands, make Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve one of Alaska's most popular natural destinations. In addition to its geological wonders, the basin plays home to rich ecosystems and a wealth of marine and coastal creatures, including seabirds, grizzly bears, whales, and seals. You can visit the area either by ground or sea. Coming via a cruise ship, you'll find yourself surrounded with mountains, forests, and gigantic ice formations. Hop on a kayaking or rafting excursion for a closer look at the landscape that served as the sacred homeland of the Tlingit people and dazzled European explorers. Admire the bay's namesake collection of glaciers nestled in inlets and coves, including the famous Muir Glacier.
