Tracy Arm Fjord, Juneau

4.9
#2 of 144 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.

    I had never heard of a Fjord before, so this was a new adventure. Watching the color of the water change from grey to emerald green to blue was amazing.  more »

Where to stay in Juneau

For easy access to the best of Juneau’s cultural attractions, dining options, and historical pubs, consider paying extra to stay in a downtown hotel while on vacation. A bed and breakfast or lodge farther out of town provides the great views and outdoor experience for which Alaska is famed. Before booking a lodge, check carefully how far it is from the city center. Distances on maps of a state and city this big can be deceptive.
