Tracy Arm Fjord, Juneau

4.8
#2 of 241 in Parks in Alaska
At the end of Tracy Arm Fjord are the mighty twin Sawyer Glaciers, which are actively calving. You can see chunks of ice, some the size of a building, breaking off and floating in the water. Harbor seals, mountain goats, bears, wolves, and deer are not uncommon sights. Along its 48 km (30 mi) length, the fjord offers views of the surrounding mountains, with numerous waterfalls cascading down the cliffs. Take a cruise down the fjord, but dress warmly. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Juneau holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tracy Arm Fjord and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Beautiful fjord. Some of the prettiest landscape I have ever seen. I cannot recommend it enough. We went after a rain, so there were waterfalls everywhere. If you can get a tour boat into the fjord, take the opportunity. It is worth it.
  • The captain was very informative and knowledgeable. The deckhand made good sandwiches that were reasonable priced along with drinks. Spent a great deal of time at the glacier which was nice.
  • Tracy Arm is a Y shaped fiord ends of which terminate in glaciers. Along the way are icebergs, bears, and seals. We were lucky and witnessed a calving of big chunks of blue ice.
  • We were on a cruise. It was interesting. We saw a glacier and a ton of icebergs. It was a good experience
  • Beautiful fjord full of spectacular views, waterfalls and Wildlife.
